31 October sees the start of COP26, which many consider the most important climate conference since 2015. Once again, the world’s leaders will have the opportunity to discuss how to address the looming climate crisis. Action cannot be delayed, as stated by the “climate emergency” declaration made by the United Nations in December 2020. Climate change is a very real risk for people, the planet and the economy. According to the World Economic Forum, “Failure to act on climate change” is the second most impactful and likely to happen global risk.

Sustainability in Fashion: Intention vs Action

The aftermath of Coronavirus (COVID-19) has been characterised by stark tensions and contradictions. These range from social empathy and a sense of community to a “me first” attitude of self-interest; from risk aversion to compulsive behaviour; from cautious spending and “less stuff” to indulgence spending and comfort clutter. These choices and behaviours vary from individual to individual, but we are seeing consumers engaging with both sides of the trend. They are risk averse in some aspects of their lives whilst throwing caution to the wind in others. Fashion sees consumer interest peak in sustainable and ethical brands, while fast-fashion remains an affordable convenience for many.

Travel and tourism businesses are much more exposed to climate change than those in other industries, given that the travel experience takes places in local destinations, often emerging countries with fragile ecosystems that are prone to climatic events and natural disasters. Coastal destinations are especially vulnerable to climate change and extreme weather events. Hence, two thirds of travel companies deem climate impacts as being a significant reason to develop business resilience.
