That this House recognises the fast fashion industry as a major contributor to carbon emissions, producing 10 per cent of all humanity's greenhouse gas emissions, and is responsible for serious human rights violations around the world; and therefore calls on the Government to introduce a policy where global fashion companies selling products in the UK must be transparent with consumers by releasing data that is accessible to consumers on the company's environmental and ethical impacts in areas such as their carbon footprint, water usage, and the working conditions of their staff across their supply chains.
