Global Leaders

THE CONFERENCE EXISTS TO enable the connections needed to create meaningful and productive sustainable fashion practices and 2020’s two-day program is the optimal model to build economically viable businesses that are grounded in carbon and waste minimisation, and maximise resource use through regenerative practices. 

The evolution of the conference has moved from advocacy and awareness towards consumer change management. The context of 2018 needed to ground the industry in the severity and scale of fashion un-sustainability in its current form. By 2019, sustainability was top-of-mind for many, which was reflected in the conference structure. Our aims were to foster connections between industries, showing the benefits of working collaboratively.

In 2020, our theme ‘The Future of Fashion is Now’ outlines how to keep the fashion industry viable in a volatile world of consumer demand and climate action.

Igniting Future Fashion

The Conference exists to enable the connections needed to create meaningful and productive sustainable fashion practices.

The ACFC is Zero Waste Event

Each year we look to improve our environmental footprint, which is why we partner with the Carbon Neutral Charitable Fund to offset our impact. We also create a zero waste to landfill event by looking for reusable, recyclable or compostable solutions for all single use items, in 2019 we did this by working with Planet Ark, Shred-X and Detpak to offer recyclable coffee cups solutions.

Creating Partnerships which Stick

We’ve designed the 2020 event to deliver what we’ve set out to achieve, here is the contribution each component plays.
