Organic luxury bed, bath and apparel company Coyuchi has announced its ambition to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2025.
It has also pledged to become a net positive company by 2030 and assembled a council of leaders across fashion, regenerative agriculture and sustainability to form The Coyuchi Climate Council to help achieve its goals.
They include Jeff Hogue, Chief Sustainability Officer of Levi’s, Cara Chacon, Founder & Principal Consultant at Intentum Corporate Responsibility Consulting, Steve Finkel, Founder and President of White Buffalo Land Trust and Amanda Cattermole, Founder of Cattermole Consulting.
Coyuchi’s first annual Impact Report revealed 100% of its products were made from 100% natural fibres, 99% of its products were Global Organic Textile Standard Certified and the company invested in carbon farming practices on more than 6,000 acres in California.
In addition, it has a 100% executive female leadership and 90% female workforce and over the last four years has been supporting 1% for the Planet, in which 1% of sales of select product goes to a non-profit supporting the fight against climate change.
Eileen Mockus, CEO & President of Coyuchi said: “Coyuchi’s pursuit of sustainable innovation has never been achievable in a silo. The complexities of the textiles supply chain do not allow for us to work alone and when we launched our first circular product in 2020, we recognised the true value of our network in the battle against climate change.
“This small but mighty group of leaders was carefully selected for their deep rooted expertise across industries and I am confident they will push Coyuchi to be innovative and aggressive with achieving our goals.”
