Social and environmental sustainability in fashion sheds light on several issues, ranging from overproduction and brand pollution, to poor conditions for garment workers. With the resulting demand for sustainable fashion, organizations in the industry, including federations, fashion weeks, luxury houses, and fast fashion brands are challenged to adjust their corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts and transparency accordingly.
For this reason, independent fashion organizations are dedicated to increasing attention to the urgency of issues related to sustainability - social or environmental. This collective action is driving a massive transformation in the fashion sector towards circularity, which is ultimately shaping the fashion news agenda of diverse media platforms.
Given the relevance of this topic, FashionUnited has a dedicated page to provide professionals and businesses with an overview of the latest news and innovations around sustainability in the fashion industry. This section offers readers the latest news, cohesively covering sustainable fabrics, new regulations and legislation, resources, circular fashion and greenwashing, among other topics.
Since its launch, this dedicated sustainability section on FashionUnited has received over 2,800 visits across all local language pages. As the leading B2B fashion platform, it has become the go-to place for professionals to explore the latest trends, developments and news related to sustainable fashion, and ensure they are up-to-date with the rapidly evolving fashion industry.
As the international B2B network continues to grow, connecting more than one million professionals a month, FashionUnited has an important responsibility to highlight crucial issues such as sustainability to improve transparency in the fashion industry. Increasing the awareness of current events on sustainability and circularity is more important than ever, as modern business practices are significantly compromising the natural environment and the living conditions of all those who make up the fashion industry.
