Ermenegildo Zegna is strengthening its dedication to global sustainability by joining The Fashion Pact. Promoted by Francois Henri Pinault, Kering Group President, and entrusted by the President of the Republic of France, Emmanuel Macron, the project aims to identify key priorities and actions for a more sustainable planet. Over 30 fashion and luxury brands—including Chanel, Burberry, Moncler, and Hermès—have joined.
“The Fashion Pact is an unparalleled project signed by the most important fashion and luxury groups aiming to proactively act together for a sustainable world to build up a better future,” said Gildo Zegna, the CEO of Ermenegildo Zegna. “I believe that joining our forces we can reach remarkable achievements. As Zegna we are very proud to be part of the coalition, and I thank Mr. Francois Henri Pinault for the involvement.”
The Fashion Pact focuses on three essential areas: halting global warming by having zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050; restoring biodiversity to restore natural ecosystems and safeguarding wildlife species; and protecting the oceans by establishing practical initiatives like banning single-use plastic.
“Zegna is since longtime committed in sustainable projects: we are vertically integrated and able to manage key directional projects as the #USETHEEXISTING one based on the recycling and up cycling of natural and technical materials,” added Zegna. “The Fashion Pact will be for our Group not the beginning of the sustainability journey but the continuation of a commitment initiated by our Founder Ermenegildo Zegna more than a century ago. That’s our legacy and our responsibility.”
