Fast fashion—the environmental impact

Emily Dorotheou, Associate at Mishcon de Reya, has been quoted by LexisNexis in an article on the environmental and social impact of fast fashion and the Environmental Audit Committee’s report into clothing consumption and sustainability.

Emily said: "While legislation may be required to drive good behaviour, the government will need to be mindful of not rendering those companies, which do comply with their sustainability requirements, at a competitive disadvantage to their competitors. The fashion industry is big business in the UK (worth £32bn to the UK economy in 2017) and so any changes to improve sustainability will need to avoid the UK becoming an undesirable place to do business."
