Copenhagen Fashion Week's 2023 Sustainability Requirements framework shaped The Sustainability Priorities And Gaps From 48 Textiles Companies Report
This week marked the launch of The Sustainability Priorities And Gaps From 48 Textiles Companies Report from the ‘Fremtidens Tekstilkrav’ programme. We are proud to have been part of this programme to support Danish SMEs on their sustainability transition.
In the Finance Act 2021, 10 million DKK was allocated to restart the Danish fashion and textile industry with a focus on sustainability after Covid-19. As such, the ‘Fremtidens Tekstilkrav’ programme is the most holistic and ambitious programme to date for textile SMEs wanting to accelerate their sustainability transition. Copenhagen Fashion Week's 2023 Sustainability Requirements were used as a framework for the 48 participating companies and consultancies to document their sustainability efforts and to set up an action plan.
As result of the project, 40% of participating companies decided to establish a long-term sustainability strategy. In addition, more than 15 different initiatives were initiated across the companies. The report reveals the challenges the companies faced in relation to their sustainability initiatives and contains recommendations for how the industry can move forward to create a better industry.
