CNMI Sustainable Fashion Awards 2023, the event that honors sustainable fashion, will be held on September 24 at Teatro alla Scala in Milan, at the conclusion of Milan Fashion Week.
The event is organized by Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, in collaboration with Ethical Fashion Initiative (EFI) of the United Nations and with the support of the City of Milan.
Vision, innovation, commitment to craftsmanship, recognition of differences, circular economy, human rights, environmental justice and biodiversity are the themes at the center of the CNMI Sustainable Fashion Awards 2023, attended by personalities and virtuous realities that have distinguished themselves in the Italian and international fashion world for their commitment to sustainability.
The winners will be chosen by an Advisory Committee composed of 25 Italian and international associations and nonprofit organizations involved in sustainable fashion, and an International Jury composed of professionals and prominent personalities in the field.
The Advisory Committee aims to intercept the best sustainability-related projects at the international level: each candidate (more than 150 applications were received) was assigned a score based on an evaluation grid created in collaboration with EFI, Quantis and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, a charity committed to building a circular economy.
Ten prizes will be awarded: the three nominees with the highest score in each category will be reviewed by an international Jury, comprised of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, represented by its CEO Andrew Morlet, Chief Executive Officer of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, and composed of 10 other personalities who have distinguished themselves in the field of sustainability.
The goal of the initiative is to increasingly define the fashion industry’s green goals and put them into practice.
A complex operation that passes through the alignment of the various actors directly or indirectly involved, with the common goal of unifying their operations, in a world affected by climate change, loss of biodiversity, overuse of natural resources, inequality and conflict.
The work done by the CNMI is being developed in line with the upcoming legislative process stemming from the European Union’s Green Deal, which aims for a new regulation on eco-design of sustainable products and a directive on eco-claims.
