The work that GFA has been leading over the last ten years to bring attention to the need for sustainability is inspiring – and I look forward to supporting the team and our strategic partners in further shaping the conversation, and addressing the fashion industry’s impacts on climate change. There is no issue more pressing, and GFA is at the forefront of galvanising the Fashion industry to act with urgency.”
