Global Fashion Agenda, the world’s foremost leadership forum for sustainability in fashion, has announced that Allbirds and Ganni will support the organisation as associate partners. The associate partners are handpicked companies that are dedicated to improving their sustainability performance or that are demonstrated leaders in sustainability.

Distinguished for its environmentally friendly footwear, Allbirds utilises new proprietary sustainable materials, including eucalyptus fibre and SweetFoam, which is derived from renewable sugarcane. Allbirds is on a mission to prove that comfort, design and sustainability are not mutually exclusive by making premium footwear from renewable materials, designed for everyday life.

Founded in 2000, Danish fashion label Ganni has developed exponentially over recent years with its Scandi 2.0 sense of style full of personality, contrasts and experimentation. Ganni, an advanced contemporary brand, is committed to reducing its carbon footprint amongst 25 other sustainable initiatives and is transparent about its conscious efforts to adopt more sustainable practices.

Acting as a secondary sounding board to Global Fashion Agenda’s strategic partners, the associate partners offer another perspective on sustainability as they vary in market segments, target demographics and product offerings, to further represent a range of different business demands across the value chain. The brands will partake in shaping the global sustainability agenda by providing feedback and input on initiatives, content and policy developed by Global Fashion Agenda and its strategic partners.

"Sustainability is an issue that can’t be ignored and it’s crucial that the industry comes together to take immediate action. Bringing sustainable shoe brand Allbirds and fashion forward Ganni on board will expand and diversify our associate partners circle. I am looking forward to drawing on their feedback to drive our sustainability agenda forward,” Eva Kruse, CEO and president, Global Fashion Agenda, said.

"At Allbirds, our mission is to make incredible products that have the lowest carbon footprint possible, with the ultimate goal of becoming an entirely carbon-negative company. We’re proud to join Global Fashion Agenda to work closely with like-minded brands who also believe that we must collaborate around sustainability rather than compete," Joey Zwillinger and Tim Brown, co-founders and co-CEOs of Allbirds, said.

"At Ganni, we believe that sustainability is rapidly becoming a prerequisite for doing business in the fashion industry but also a moral obligation. And as with any other moral matter, we all need help and guidance to get there. Partnering with Global Fashion Agenda gives us access to knowledge and offers opportunities to collaborate with like-minded players in the industry, as well as nudges us in the right direction on a daily basis,” Nicolaj Reffstrup, founder, Ganni, said.
