Driving responsible action
Three years into the critical decade in the fight against climate change, the fashion retail industry came together to learn how fashion retail can action change for a responsible future.
From implementing truly circular models to understanding upcoming legislation that aims to transform the industry, we tackled the topics that are redefining sustainability in fashion retail. The day was packed with content, insights, honesty and collaboration, creating an opportunity to galvanise the industry through a shared - critical - goal. We came together on the 28 March 2023 at Kings Place, London to explore new ways for the industry to push the boundaries within this urgent challenge.
AN IMPORTANT NEW COLLABORATION FOR 2023
We were delighted to collaborate with Textiles2030 as our official charity partner in 2023. Textiles 2030 is WRAP’s award-winning, ground-breaking initiative, harnessing the knowledge and expertise of UK leaders in sustainability to accelerate the UK fashion and textiles industry towards a circular economy. The voluntary agreement builds on the learning and success of the Sustainable Clothing Action Plan (SCAP 2020) and aims to engage the majority of UK fashion and textiles organisations in collaborative climate action.

Events like Drapers are invaluable because it helps me to meet my counterparts, like-minded professionals, make those connections and it’s so nice to be able to do it in person again.

I think we have a great opportunity to bring people together particularly with things like the roundtables, getting more people to the stands and learning more about everyone’s contribution to sustainability.
