SWAR Project shortlisted for Global Sustainability Award

We are proud to report that STWI’s successful Indian pilot project, Sustainable Water Resources (SWAR), has been shortlisted as one of five finalists for the prestigious Global Leadership Award in Sustainable Apparel (GLASA).

Annually the GLASA network identifies an important sustainability topic to frame. The theme chosen for 2015 is Water. The award is designed to identify the most promising leadership and practices in the chosen area and in 2015, GLASA will produce a State of the Apparel Sector Report focused on water.

The GLASA jury is comprised of leaders from Nordic industry and Sustainability Networks such as the Sustainable Apparel Coalition, Danish Fashion Institute, SEB and the Association of Swedish Fashion Brands. The GLASA process is coordinated by The Sustainable Fashion Academy (SFA), a not-for-financial-profit organisation.

The final award will be announced at a global symopsium and award ceremony on Thursday August 27  in conjunction with the 2015 World Water Week in Stockholm.
