Sustainable Development Goals
In 2015, the United Nations outlined a bold vision for a better world. Dubbed the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the framework included 17 goals for progress, and 169 specific targets. They go from ending global poverty, to building effective, accountable, and inclusive institutions.
While it is true that those in positions of power have a great responsibility to act, we are in an all-hands-on-deck situation and we must contribute to achieving the SDGs. After all, we are all in the same boat. Our lives are all connected. We all breathe the same air.
Actors in the fashion business have a critical role to play. We are talking about a $1.7 trillion-dollar global industry that employs approximately 300 million people across the value chain, many of whom are women in the Global South.
We fully acknowledge that as a small business our impact is not as great as we wish it could be. But we are not deterred and are focused on what we can do. No action is too small to help tackle the climate crisis, to improve ethical work conditions, or to promote peaceful and inclusive societies where everyone can thrive. We are committed to doing our part and more to help achieve the UN's SDGs, and encourage you to learn more and do your part too.
