Fashion For Global Climate Action – a brand statement
Isla Outerwear is aligned with the goals of the Paris Climate Change Agreement and towards net-zero emissions by 2050 in line with keeping global warming under 1.5 degrees.
Recognising the critical need to help implement the Paris Agreement and accelerate the transformative change needed to reach greenhouse gas emission neutrality, Isla Outerwear supports the vision outlined in the UN Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action.
We express our intent to implement the principles enshrined in the UN Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action and commit to working collaboratively to develop, implement and enhance the climate action agenda in fashion.

We are a new brand, and every decision we make or have made so far in developing our business aligns with the goals of the UN Paris Climate Change Agreement. We aren’t perfect, but every day through every decision we consider our climate impact. Here’s what we’ve done so far.
We carefully source recycled fabrics for their quality and function. Our DWR technical polyester is 100% recycled and certified under the Global Recycled Standard 4.0 and is made in the USA. You can find the white paper here.
