To address climate change, a number of countries adopted the Paris Agreement at the COP21 in Paris on 12 December 2015. In the agreement, all countries agreed to work to limit global temperature rise to well below 2 degrees Celsius, and given the grave risks, to strive for 1.5 degrees Celsius.
In December 2018, Salomon signed the United Nation Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action, committing to 30 percent reduction in aggregate greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 (scope 1, 2, 3), with a vision to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
