Webinar Series

Fashion Takes Action is a non-profit established in 2007, with a mission to advance sustainability in the entire fashion system through education, awareness, research and collaboration. In 2014, we launched the World Ethical Apparel Roundtable (WEAR) – now a monthly webinar series –
that brings together thousands of global fashion industry stakeholders to learn from
leading experts and academics. Scroll down for past recordings!

Impact measurement + reporting

The fashion industry is often quick to adopt sustainability into their marketing rhetoric, but how much of this is being integrated into a brand’s guiding principles? Recognizing the immense global impact fashion has on people and planet, it’s imperative that brands set clear targets and commit to meeting them. This month we’re focusing on how ESG is starting to drive change in the fashion industry and how this affects all aspects of business – across supply chains, amongst investors, employees and consumers. We’ll be talking about what top-rated brands are currently reporting on, how progress is measured, and how once ESG reporting becomes more formally regulated, there will be more accountability for progress.

Each month, Fashion Takes Action addresses barriers to sustainability through our monthly WEAR webinar series. This month we are addressing Equity, Diversity & Inclusion in fashion and the significant role race plays in your sustainability journey. This series is an opportunity to hear the voices that have been in the shadows for too long, shine a spotlight on those who are leading change, learn how to help dismantle the existing colonial framework and rebuild a culture of inclusivity on the path to sustainability.

Check back soon – these sessions will be announced shortly!
