Abstract

Global warming is a time pressing issue that needs to be curbed and many countries are working towards reducing their carbon emissions because of the Paris Accord (UNCC, 2016). The fast fashion industry is the second largest and most evident source of greenhouse gas emission and pollution in the world (Bick, et al., 2018). Therefore, the extent of contributions made by these industries for social welfare will be assessed by considering their level of corporate social responsibility (CSR). Moreover, the claims made by the fast fashion industry leaders in the world will be assessed in terms of their authenticity. This research would be quantitative in nature, as 40 questionnaires would be administered to industry experts working for the fast fashion industry in Dublin. SPSS would be used to analyze the data trends and to understand whether these fast fashion companies are fulfilling their responsibilities or not. The findings can help to regulate the industry and reduce carbon emissions from the same. It can have managerial implications for fast fashion industry operating in Dublin, Ireland.
