Global Leadership Award in Sustainable Apparel
The textile industry is facing many challenges. A high use of natural resources, major environmental effects and social inequality are all potential threats also to future economic growth and social welfare in the industry.
The Global Leadership Award in Sustainable Apparel (GLASA) was launched in 2013 to inspire good leadership and intelligent innovation throughout the textile industry in a direction that is environmentally and socially sustainable.
GLASA is a forum for relevant stakeholders that are central to increasing the pace of the textile industry’s sustainability efforts. Every year a renowned jury convenes to appoint five finalists who have all made significant and transformative advances in the field.
Axfoundation and Association of Swedish Fashion Brands are main partners of the Sustainable Fashion Academy, founders of the award. The primary focus for Axfoundation is on the workshop which is always held in connection with the awards ceremony.
