Enabling an Inclusive and Sustainable World

Globally, the textiles industry has a long and complex history. Unlike today, sustainability, environmental impact and garment workers’ rights were certainly not considered a high priority, with many garment producing countries not even paying the national minimum wage. 

Throughout the years, the industry has seen a rapid increase in progression, with sustainability becoming a much more integral part of how businesses work today. A change in mentality and conscious awareness towards the problems that society is facing, has become a key factor for many organisations, no matter the industry. 

Although this is undoubtedly a step in the right direction, change is not happening fast enough and this is where collaboration is key. If the fashion industry is to play its part in helping tackle climate change, isolated efforts alone cannot be relied on. Therefore, large-scale solutions that connect both people and the planet are fundamental when looking towards a sustainable future.

The H&M Foundation, an independent non-profit organisation, uses philanthropy as a catalyst to reshape the future of fashion. They are taking the necessary bold steps and leading the way in innovation and transformation through a number of areas. 

One of these areas is their Planet Positive initiative, where the H&M Foundation is supporting research and innovation through cutting edge technology. The aim of which is to regenerate, replenish and reimagine; giving back to planet earth instead of taking from it. 

Global Manager of the H&M Foundation, Anna Gedda claims there is a clear call to action now and says, “The textile industry’s entire impact on people’s lives and Earth’s shared resources must be vastly improved, meaning that both people and planet can not only survive, but thrive.”

With the textile industry leaving “take-make-waste” behind, adopting sustainable innovation at an unprecedented speed and the fourth industrial revolution making its way into the textiles industry, an opportunity to provide social inclusion for the millions of people working within its value chains has presented itself. Building Inclusive Societies in communities where fashion is made is crucial to the organisation.

Using the collective impact method, H&M Foundation challenges the systems upholding injustice and exclusion by shifting power balance and addressing deep-rooted social problems through co-creation and guidance from those most affected by systemic challenges. Right now, H&M Foundation works with women garment workers in Bangladesh, equipping them for a future defined by automation and digitisation, and with making waste pickers in India an integral part of an inclusive circular system. 

To change systems, you first must change the narrative. Stories shape how we understand the world, our place in it, as well as our ability to change it. Communication plays a huge role in painting the vision of what a reinvented fashion industry could look like. As important as it is to discuss the challenges faced, it’s equally as important to highlight the people and solutions with the potential, to make change happen. 

Communication can inspire and challenge the industry to be more innovation ready, by showcasing the solutions that are out there.
