SDG 17 – Partnerships for the Goals
We make up a small part of the whole supply chain. As retailers without any own production, our operations do not have any direct impact on the production of the goods. We do, however, have the ability to inform, innovate and communicate a strategy with our brand partners as well as educate and impart knowledge to our customers about what matters. Similarly, as we do not directly manage any of our transport suppliers, building strong partnerships is key to having influential conversations and making an impact.
Goal 17. Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalise the global partnership for sustainable development.
We believe deepened collaboration between sector stakeholders is key to achieving a sustainable fashion industry. In 2018, we intensified our stakeholder engagement to further contribute to Goal 17.
For 2019, we will concentrate on developing relationships with new and existing brand partners through common projects and focus areas. This will involve building the framework for establishing initiatives such as “Re-cycle your wardrobe” and circularity initiatives with strategic partners, such as Copenhagen Fashion Week, to close-the-loop. We intend to take strategic steps to support our data by integrating the tool/metric to rate products and brands on their environmental impact. This can also be used to better inform customers of their environmental choices.
We aim to address Goal 17 through:
• Creating strong partnerships in our value chain.
• Elaborating with existing partners (such as brands, Copenhagen Fashion Week, distribution partners)
• Engaging in new partnerships
