Conscious Fashion and Lifestyle Action Network

Given its global reach, the fashion and lifestyle industries are uniquely positioned to collaborate and engage on the Sustainable Development Goals, in particular on climate action and responsible production and consumption.

Many industry organizations, companies and networks have pioneered sustainable solutions that continue to support the advancement of the Global Goals. And there is tremendous scope to grow this trend away from outdated production and distribution methods that contribute to social inequality and to the carbon pollution that causes climate change.

To better support the industry’s significant potential, the Conscious Fashion Campaign and Network was established in 2019 to mobilize innovative ideas, connect industry leaders, enable new partnerships, and enact sustainable change. Through advocacy, partnership development, and education - the Conscious Fashion Network supports solutions for sustainable innovation.

The COVID-19 pandemic has severely disrupted the industry and there is a window of opportunity to re-imagine the future of operations. The pandemic has shown us that major change is possible - in the way we live, work, produce and consume. Crucially, major change is exactly what we need to confront the climate crisis, and recover better from the pandemic. Now more than ever, it is essential that sustainability is prioritized within the fashion and lifestyle industries to ensure our resilient recovery.
