Together with H&M, WWF has carried out Science Based Target initiative ( SBTi )trainings to H&M suppliers as well as other textile companies that WWF works with in China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia, India, Pakistan, Turkey and Bangladesh on how to set science-based targets.
In this decisive decade for climate action, it is great to see how the H&M Group and WWF can work together to engage other textile companies on critical topics such as setting science-based targets through trainings and other projects. Collaboration and an exchange of ideas on shared challenges and solutions are needed to lead the way to a low-carbon future.
