SIWI supports global sustainable apparel award

Apr 10, 2015

The award was launched in 2013 to inspire bold and courageous leadership in the apparel sector and to mobilize key stakeholders around promising ideas or practices that can significantly increase the sustainability performance of the apparel industry.

Each year, in consultation with GLASA’s global network, an important topic or theme is identified which frames the GLASA process for the coming year.

In 2015, GLASA is focusing on water. GLASA is particularly interested in how the apparel industry can become a leader in water stewardship, and inspire other industries to do the same.

On August 26th and 27th, global apparel sector representatives and international experts will convene in Stockholm to discuss water stewardship in the apparel sector and honour the finalists and recipient of The Global Leadership Award in Sustainable Apparel.

A special symposium and award ceremony will take place during Thursday, August 27th in conjunction with the 2015 World Water Week in Stockholm.
