Accelerating transformation: collaboration, circularity and transparency

The fashion industry’s efforts to become more sustainable were in danger of derailment during the coronavirus pandemic. However, recognising that sustainability is a business imperative, many brands and retailers continued to invest in cleaning up their supply chains and introducing new, circular models of working, despite the unprecedented trading conditions.

Covid-19 has presented unforeseen challenges for fashion retailers and brands, but it has also given us all an opportunity to build back better.
Forward-thinking fashion businesses know change is not an option, and are embracing their responsibilities and ability to make a difference.

The Drapers Sustainable Fashion Conference will address these issues and more, uniting our community of fashion leaders and practitioners in person.

The Drapers Sustainable Fashion Awards programme recognises the strides that are being made in reducing the industry’s environmental impact and creating fairer working conditions across the supply chain.

Judged by an independent panel of experts, this market-leading awards programme shines a spotlight on best practice within the industry, so others can learn how to change for good. The judging will be underpinned by the UN-backed Sustainable Development Goals, which address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change and environmental degradation.

Award winners will be announced online, with a Winners Panel Showcase being featured at the conference at 
Kings Place, London on 21 April 2022. Enter the awards before 28 January 2022.
