As the industry increasingly strives to become more sustainable, the Sustainability award at this year’s Drapers Awards recognises a fashion retailer or brand that can demonstrate a corporate sustainability campaign or strategy that sets the highest standards in the market.
Fashion retailers have improved their environmental and social performance over the last 12 months, and are integrating sustainability across the entire business strategy – manufacturing, supply chain, materials and working practices. The Sustainability award is a chance to celebrate these achievements and highlight your business’s progress and leadership in working towards a more sustainable future in fashion.
In particular, judges will be looking for examples of excellence that have been introduced or achieved during the last year and position the business as a leader in sustainability. Entries can include small but significant projects as well as broader strategic initiatives.
Entries must highlight the ambition of the sustainability strategy or project and how it has met its objectives and achieved its results. Explanation of how the business is setting new industry standards, as well as the benefits to the wider community, should also be included.
The glittering black-tie Drapers Awards ceremony will return to its new home, the Roundhouse in Camden, London, on 29 November. To be in with a chance to win, submit your entry by 8 June here or contact Kathryn McHolm on 020 3953 2226 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
