In November 2021, World Resources Institute (WRI) and the Apparel Impact Institute (Aii) published the Roadmap to Net Zero: Delivering Science-Based Targets in the Apparel Sector. In it, WRI and Aii provided a fresh estimate of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the apparel sector and outlined six interventions that it must take to reduce GHG emissions at a pace aligned with a 1.5°C temperature increase scenario.

On May 18th (9:00am EDT / 6:00am PDT), representatives from WRI and Aii will host a panel focusing on the energy-related interventions identified in the roadmap, including shifting to 100 percent renewable electricity, eliminating coal in manufacturing, and maximizing energy efficiency.
