Keeping the Pressure On: Watchdogs & Climate Action

A variety of NGOs and watchdog oriented organizations have rightly been pressuring fashion and apparel companies and other industry actors to be much more accountable when it comes to climate action. What do they want and how will they get it?
Some of the key questions we covered in this session included:
What do these industry advocacy organizations and watchdogs want, is the industry living up to their demands, and will their demands lead to the emission reductions science says we need?
What is their strategy for achieving their goals?
Is industry resisting these demands or are some important industry actors aligned?
