Zara promises all its clothes will be sustainable by 2025. Fashion brand Zara has promised to only sell sustainable clothes by 2025.

Inditex – the company who own Zara as well as brands like Pull & Bear and Bershka – said that all of their collections will be made from 100% sustainable fabrics by 2025.

The company’s commitment to be more responsible was made on Tuesday at its annual shareholders’ meeting and makes Zara, which accounts for 70% of Inditex’s group sales, the first international high street store to commit to sustainability, according to WWD.

It’s one of several ambitious targets to be announced.

By 2025, 80% of the energy from Zara’s headquarters, factories and stores will be from renewable sources and its facilities will produce zero landfill waste.

By 2023, Inditex promised that all the viscose used will be 100% sustainable.

They also promise to eliminate single use plastic in its stores.

The chief executive of Inditex, Pablo Isla explained the decision to go sustainable, saying: “We need to be a force for change, not only in the company but in the whole sector.

“We are the ones establishing these targets: the strength and impulse for change is coming from the commercial team, the people who are working with our suppliers, the people working with fabrics. It is something that’s happening inside our company.”

These promises come as fashion brands are under increased pressure from consumers, who are demanding more responsible retailing, especially in terms of the disposal of unwanted garments.

And while there is still a long way to go to make the fashion industry a more sustainable one, it’s great to see brands like Zara take steps in the right direction.
