Ethical Fashion Working Group

Columbia |School of International and Public Affairs

The purpose of SIPA’s Ethical Fashion Working Group is to raise awareness of the fashion industry’s impact on the environment, workers, and animals, and to advance well-informed consumer behavior. The Working Group will explore all levels of the fashion industrial complex from farm to consumer closet in an effort to better understand how the industry can transition to more ethical and sustainable processes, and the ways in which policy can support the path to an ethical fashion future.
