The Fashion CEO Agenda – an openly accessible resource – is a strategic tool designed to steer fashion organisations towards achieving a net positive industry by 2050.

This year’s agenda is in line with the 2024 theme of the Global Fashion Summit, ‘Unlocking the Next Level’.

Global Fashion Agenda says since the summit’s inception in 2009, sustainability has evolved from a peripheral concern to a central focus in the fashion business landscape, prompting significant strides across the industry. Despite this progress, the alarming escalation of global warming and the exponential rise in clothing production demand urgent and collective action from fashion industry leaders.

Unlocking the next level of positive impact necessitates a comprehensive understanding of interdependencies and system-wide solutions. The 2024 edition of the Fashion CEO Agenda aims to empower fashion leaders and the wider industry to embrace five key opportunities:

  • Operationalising Sustainability
  • Redefining Growth
  • Activating Consumers
  • Prioritising People
  • Mobilising Based on Materiality

Drawing from the five priorities of the Fashion CEO Agenda — Respectful and Secure Work Environments, Better Wage Systems, Resource Stewardship, Smart Material Choices, and Circular Systems — this special edition highlights five cross-cutting opportunities that will help achieve the next level of progress on these priorities.

This edition focuses on challenging norms and amplifying efforts and serves as a crucial inflection point for the industry to foster positive outcomes for both society and the environment. By upholding the rights of workers, championing diversity and inclusivity, redefining success metrics, and reshaping growth paradigms, profound transformation is possible.
