Positive Change Award - NEW
Open to any fashion brand or retailer that operates in the UK and/or Ireland.
At Drapers we recognise that many of the more established fashion brands and retailers were not necessarily built on sustainable values, but are still making serious efforts to improve their operations.
New for 2021, the Positive Change Award recognises the established brand or retailer that has made the most progress towards its sustainability goals in the last 12 months. Judges will be looking for a clear sustainability strategy that incorporates relevant and achievable objectives, and evidence that these objectives have been met in part or in full. Please include as much detail as possible about specific initiatives, innovations or collaborations that enabled the business to deliver the strategy.
Where relevant, companies should also highlight how they have worked with their suppliers to improve working conditions and/or reduce the amount of waste in the supply chain over the past 12 months. Judges will be looking for evidence of constructive engagement with suppliers, including during the coronavirus pandemic.
