Our Small Business Commitment to Net Zero
I believe that net zero is something we must achieve for people and planet. That's why this small business commits to take action immediately in order to:
In doing so, we are proud to be recognised by the United Nations Race to Zero campaign, and join governments, businesses, cities, regions, and universities around the world that share the same mission.
I think there is a moral and economic imperative. As a small business owner I believe I have a responsibility to do my bit to cut carbon emissions and protect the planet. I encourage my fellow independents, other entrepreneurs, and all my peers to do so too. Let's tackle this together.
As an individual I often feel overwhelmed. It seems bigger than me. Should it be left to businesses to change? I say no. We all have our part to play. 'What can you do?' Here are 16 steps for the most effective ways to reduce your carbon pollution, including choosing to 'wear clothes that last' it's also about persuading others to do the same.
For the team at Revival Retro it begins with a commitment to a plan of action. That plan doesn't involve knowing all the answers right now. It's a commitment to taking the actions we can over the next few years but also committing to research and innovation in the future. This is a journey and it isn't necessarily linear. However, we know the ultimate goal and we are working towards it.
We are all constantly learning and sometimes this gives rise to questions such as "Does this mean you are a sustainable fashion brand?', "How does net zero relate to zero waste?", "Is slow fashion related to the 2050 deadline?'. These are all valid questions and we will try to answer them for you over time because making conscious decisions requires insights. We want to help with that.
