The CO Leadership Awards is broadly inclusive, spotlighting fashion companies which ‘have the courage to do the right thing – and do it well.’
In addition to the Leadership Awards, Common Objective has announced, and anointed a Who’s Who of the sustainable fashion industry with the CO 10 Awards, according to CO’s website. A distinguished panel of judges including Caroline Rush (chief exec, British Fashion Council), Brigitte Stepputtis (head of couture, Vivienne Westwood), and Dylan Jones (editor of GQ and head of London’s Men Fashion Week) selected 10 finalists for the 2019 CO 10 Award. The winners achieved the six tiers of sustainability: mission, business model, products/services benefiting the environment, positive impact, roadmap objectives & goals, and communication raising awareness. Additionally, they were ‘pioneers of business in three dimensions: driving an immense amount of value for people, for the planet, and for profits’. Brands include Stella McCartney, Raeburn, Bottletop, and Outland Denim.
“For ten years, Dhana has been committed to connecting our youth to people and planet through the medium of high-quality fashion. We believe our children deserve to know how fashion impacts workers, communities, and the environment so they can identify with a brand for its integrity and transparency, but also become role models as environmental champions,” said Shamini Dhana, founder & CEO of Dhana Inc.
“We are proud to recognise the award-winning brand Dhana as the sole youth apparel brand to be selected as a CO Leader. Dhana has demonstrated the commitment to social and environmental standards for the past decade and continues to innovate towards addressing the need for a circular and sustainable fashion industry for our next generation leaders,” said Tamsin Lejeune, CEO of CO.
