Given the worldwide rapidly increasing CO2 emissions, leading brands and retailers call for stronger climate protection at the Climate Summit in Warsaw.

Together, companies of the textile and shoe industry, scientifically supported by the German Federal Environment Agency, have formed the “Carbon Performance Improvement Initiative” (CPI2) in order to reduce climate-damaging CO2 emissions in the global production facilities of consumer goods.

On 19 November 2013 the initiative was presented at a Side Event organized by the German Federal Environment Agency at the UN Climate Summit in Warsaw.
