Virtual Fashion Event Examines SDGs to Drive Sustainability

During the pandemic, many fashion companies have been focused on survival. But even with the added pressures of 2020, the industry cannot lose sight of sustainability.

Recognizing the need for progress, this year marks the Decade of Action launched by the UN Secretary-General, centered on delivering the 17 Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. The Conscious Fashion Campaign was founded in 2019 to support the Decade of Action in the apparel industry by creating connections among a network of members with more than $4.7 billion in collective annual revenue. The campaign also drives awareness of the SDGs as a potential framework for fashion companies’ sustainable commitments and strategies.
