Global Fashion Agenda has forged alliances with a number of selected stakeholders to accelerate the fashion industry’s climate action.


With the urgent need for industry transformation, the alliance between GFA and UNFCCC will accelerate the impact of the UN Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action which aims to drive the fashion industry to net-zero emissions no later than 2050 in line with keeping global warming below 1.5 degrees.

The collaboration culminates around the organisations’ prestigious forums including GFA’s Global Fashion Summit and UNFCCC’s annual Conference of Parties (COP). Through these forums, the organisations will collaborate to unite fashion leaders and core stakeholders to facilitate knowledge sharing, impactful partnerships, and the implementation of bold actions needed to meet the Fashion Charter targets.

Watch & Jewellery Initiative 2030

To unite iconic fashion, watch and jewellery brands in a bid to accelerate positive impact, GFA forged an alliance with the Watch & Jewellery Initiative 2030, in 2023.

The fashion, watch and jewellery industries are typically based on complex value chains with a myriad of ramifications; from the environmental impact of materials to the human rights issues among workers to the strain on precious resources. To address these, GFA and WJI 2030 share ambitious goals to create a better world.
