Our Purpose

The aim of the Fashion for Good Foundation is to promote and stimulate a sustainable and responsible clothing industry, which means, clothing produced with attention to the impact on people and the environment and, also, directly or indirectly related to or for this purpose or may be beneficial to this, everything in the broadest sense of the word, provided that it is in the general interest.

Stichting Fashion for Good (Fashion for Good Foundation) was incorporated on 17 October 2017. It has an at arm’s length service contract relationship with Fashion for Good BV which hosts the Innovation Platform activities.

How do we achieve our goal

  • Collaborating with parties that have innovative ideas regarding the clothing industry.

  • Developing a community of likeminded individuals in order to catalyse a movement whose reach extends far beyond the foundation.

  • Performing all such legitimate activities that are necessary, useful or desirable to promote, establish or achieve the objectives of the foundation.
