Sustainability at Fashion Cloud

Let's make fashion wholesale a better place

At Fashion Cloud, we believe in shaping the world we live in. Our goal is to act responsibly and build products that serve our fellow human beings and our planet. In addition to promoting a socially and environmentally responsible corporate culture, we want to help the wholesale community communicate their sustainability efforts more transparently through our platform.

Take climate action now

Fashion Cloud is climate neutral

A milestone for Fashion Cloud: Since the beginning of 2021, we have been offsetting the emissions of our business activities completely via a Gold Standard certified climate protection project. This includes all our direct and indirect emissions as well as the indirect emissions of our value chain (Scope 1, 2 & 3), which amounted to 283.7 metric tons of CO2 equivalents in the calculation years 2019 and 2020. ClimatePartner supports us in making the entire process traceable and transparent.

Slide Since 2020 we are members of Leaders for CLimate Action (LFCA). An initiative of startups and digitally-led companies that share a commitment to climate action. In line with the principle of "leading by example", the pledge to reduce our company's carbon footprint and offset unavoidable emissions is part of our membership. In the LFCA network we support each other and encourage other companies to become active in climate protection. We are proud to be officially a climate neutral company by now and look forward to further climate action. A network for climate action Get to know LFCA Slide To give sustainability a home at Fashion Cloud, we created our GreenTeam. Formed of five volunteer colleagues from different areas, the GreenTeam sets sustainability goals for Fashion Cloud, coordinates resources and manages initiatives to achieve these goals. One key aspect is making our work practices and surroundings sustainable. For this purpose we create awareness for the topic of sustainability internally with events and initiatives such as our "out of the green bag" information series. In addition, our GreenTeam is in active exchange with external initiatives and stakeholders from the fashion industry to make the latter a better place. The Fashion Cloud GreenTeam Slide We love to take on sporty challengestogether at team events. That's why we organized a charity run in the summer of 2020, where the goal was to run as many rounds as possible in one hour. The best part? The sum of our collected donations was rounded up by Fashion Cloud, so we were able to make a difference. The proceeds went to ForTomorrow - an organization that works to offset CO2 emissions in Europe. With them we were able to compensate 99 tons of CO2 emissions, which corresponds to planting 200 trees and decommissioning 49.5 emission rights (EUA). That’s how fun and climate protection can be combined. Team event for climate protection
