Immediate action is needed to uphold standards for all people employed along the value chain
The CEO Agenda 2018 outlines seven priorities that lead fashion’s sustainability transformation. The CEO Agenda 2018 comprises two sections, which includes three core priorities for immediate implementation; and four transformational priorities for the long term. It draws on the most pressing issues and the biggest opportunities for environmental and social impact as outlined in our Pulse of the Fashion Industry 2017 report. Through the CEO Agenda, we aim to enhance the conversation about sustainability and encourage fashion industry leaders to take action.
Fashion brand CEOs’ decisions affect the entire value chain. These individuals have the authority to make sustainability an integral part of their business strategy and operational model. For this reason, we created the CEO Agenda to support their decision making.
At the same time, we hope that the CEO Agenda will serve as an invitation for other key players, such as investors, suppliers, government officials, researchers and NGOs to engage with fashion brands about the steps needed to make the fashion industry more sustainable.
