Homegrown fashion retailer Bayo joins other companies across the globe in committing to taking responsible business actions to create a more sustainable world.
Bayo is the first Philippine brand to become part of the United Nations Global Compact initiative, —a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation, and disclosure of responsible business practices.
The brand’s Journey to Zero movement is centered on achieving a sustainable approach to fashion—from spreading awareness on the growing need for sartorial consciousness, to designing zero-waste collections for the consumers.
It means transitioning its linear approach to a circular business model and at the same time enacting zero waste in all its production process, where most waste from textile scraps is generated.
The UN Global Compact is a call to companies everywhere to align their operations and strategies with 10 universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption, and to take action in support of UN goals and issues embodied in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Launched in 2000, the UN Global Compact is the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world, with more than 9,500 companies and 3,000 non-business signatories based in over 160 countries and more than 70 local networks.
