Sustainability Goals and Assurances
You might be wondering why everyone is talking about the UN sustainabilty goals. In the words of the UN;
'The Sustainable Development Goals or Global Goals are a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all". The SDGs were set in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly and are intended to be achieved by the year 2030' (click the link above to watch a quick 2 min explainer video)
It's easy to make big claims about sustainability, (known as greenwashing in the trade), but more challenging to stay true and transparent about each sustainability commitment made.
As a new-generation sustainable business, KAIA Clothing recognises the need to take urgent action to reduce the carbon footprint of our supply chain, and we encourage fashion businesses of all sizes to do the same. Perfection isnt' the goal, getting started and remaining transparent, is.
Over time, KAIA Clothing commitments to sustainability will be listed on this page, keeping our production and manufacturing transparent.
