PARIS GOOD FASHION MISSION
Paris Good Fashion, mission is to accelerate the sector’s transition to more sustainable fashion. Our goal is to create systemic change to make Paris the capital of a more responsible fashion by 2024, the year of the Olympic Games.
To achieve this objective, Paris Good Fashion have adopted two reference tools.
Why ? Because not everyone is going at the same speed.
Whether you are a large group, a young designer, a ready-to-wear brand, a store, an event actor or another, everyone must adapt their pace of change.
However, it is important to get involved in order to be able to assess, and therefore measure, progress.
Hence through two tools: an upcoming barometer (end of 2020) & a self-diagnosis.
• The barometer which will measure the progress of Paris Good Fashion members, quantitatively & qualitatively, is for its part developed by Deloitte.
Based on the framework of self-diagnosis, it will be communicated annually to the general public.
Each member of Paris Good Fashion is committed to responding to them & improving their performance year after year.
The results of each member will remain confidential, only the consolidated results will be communicated.
THE SELF DIAGNOSIS
• The self-diagnosis was designed by the Sidièse agency after consulting key members of the association and analyzing the existing tools. It is intended for any structure or actor who wishes to embark on the path of transition by asking the right questions. This self-diagnosis consists of 80 questions from eco-design to the relationship with consumers. This repository should allow everyone to qualify their progress and look for the right solutions.
THE INVOLVEMENT OF SED NOVE STUDIO
SED NOVE Studio, the innovation studio for the circular economy and eco-design in the leather sector, has positioned itself on two working groups formed by Paris Good Fashion:
=> supporting young brands in sustainable development & transforming fashion events into sustainable events.
