Back in 2015, the United Nations adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) designed to empower individuals and businesses alike to tackle climate change and maintain a habitable ecosystem by 2030. With 2030 now just eight years away, the stakes to reach these goals are even higher, particularly in the fashion industry, where textile waste and other energy-wasting processes remain rampant.
Industry leaders are making noteworthy inroads to prioritize a green future, however, and perhaps the biggest advantage is that they are working together. If there is one central theme or commonality that has come to light, it is that collaboration has become more commonplace globally—even among competitors.
Working together with common goals and ambitions is the only way to enact lasting, meaningful change, but this is often easier said than done.
