Port Roque values and strives for excellence in all forms of Corporate Social Responsibility. As a core part of CSR, Environmental Sustainability is top of mind with the COP26 conference occurring this month and world leaders turning their attention to the topic at hand.
Fashion production is unfortunately a large player in the global climate crisis. Fast fashion is responsible for 10% of global carbon emissions, relies on excessive use of water sources and pollutes rivers and streams. The production is only half of it; the waste management (85% of all textiles go to the dump each year (UNECE, 2018) is also sub-par.
Port Roque battles this by working with environmentally sustainable brands that understand the value of Slow Fashion and the impact their production has on the world around us.
