Brown Thomas and Arnotts Sign G7 Fashion Pact

Two of Dublin’s biggest retailers, Brown Thomas and Arnotts, have signed the G7 Fashion Pact to improve sustainability standards in retail.

Pledging to improve sustainability standards across their retail sector, Brown Thomas and Arnotts have joined with 32 other industry leading players to launch an unprecedented movement. The Fashion Pact focuses on action in three essential areas for safeguarding the planet: stopping global warming, restoring biodiversity, and protecting the oceans. They have done so alongside their sister companies, Selfridges & Co, De Bijenkorf and Holt Renfrew.

Brown Thomas and Arnotts are already striving to minimise their own environmental impacts against ambitious targets, whilst exploring opportunities to enable customers, suppliers, and employees to reduce their impacts. Their ‘Positive Change’ sustainability approach is at the heart of their business strategy, and is across three pillars of action: Buy & Sell Responsibly, Work Responsibly, and Support our People and Communities.

Donald McDonald, Managing Director of Brown Thomas Arnotts, said “This is an important milestone for the retail industry. We realise that the scale of change required cannot be achieved alone. With just 10 years left to build a sustainable future, we see working with our partners, collaborators, customers and teams as a key part of delivering real results.

“Our Positive Change sustainability approach is at the heart of our business strategy and sustainability runs through everything we do as a business. We are already working towards robust targets across all of the key areas that the Fashion Pact addresses.”
