s Our work
To safeguard the welfare of humanity our mission is to catalyse the fashion industry to become planet positive and to accelerate the development for inclusive societies. In 2020, we changed our strategy to throw fewer pebbles but make bigger waves by working in complex ecosystems to create long-lasting change from the ground up. For real impact, we openly share our new ideas, insights and practices to inspire others to replicate and scale.
