Asos to host sustainability conference

Asos is hosting a conference for its best-selling 90 brands to discuss ethical trade and sustainability in the fashion industry.

The event in London today (26 September) will examine key issues such as worker rights, purchasing practices, transparency, the changing consumer, circularity and sustainable materials to establish best practice and build common commitments for collaboration in these areas.

Guests in attendance will include representatives from Levis, Adidas, Nike, Puma, Little Mistress Group, PVH, Miss Selfridge, G-Star, Boohoo, Missguided and Fred Perry, as well as industry colleagues and organisations such as Baroness Lola Young, Fashion Revolution, WGSN, Futerra and the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre.

Speakers include Asos CEO Nick Beighton, Michael Kobori of Levi’s, Forum for the Future’s Charlene Collison, IndustriAll’s Jenny Holdcroft, ACT’s Frank Hoffer and Global Fashion Agenda’s Morten Lehmann.

Beighton said: “We believe the future of fashion is ever-changing, unpredictable, but most of all incredibly exciting. By working together, we believe we can deliver a systemic shift in the way our industry addresses key ethical trade and sustainability challenges and proactively design a future we all believe in.”
