What is sustainability?

Sustainability is a word usually used to describe processes and activities that are responsible for people and the environment. But, do we really know what it means? 

This word is frequently used by media, brands, and consumers as a general term for responsible practices, without really understanding its full meaning or extent.

Sustainability comes from the idea of Sustaining, as well as it’s possibility to endure.

It involves processes and actions that can endure through time, without exhausting resources.

Sustainable actions lead us towards a sustainable development.

The Fashion Alive project is dedicated to the development and promotion of zero waste pattern-making and fashion design, for a more sustainable, and enduring future.

3 pillars of sustainability

Sustainability is based on 3 pillars: social, environmental, and financial. 

 

A sustainable project can create actions such as utilizing organic materials, using recycled packaging as well as integrating processes and actions that embrace systemic changes, to ensure its durability through time. 

Sustainable development was first implemented in 1987 by the   Brundtland Inform.

The report portrayed the search for a balance that encompassed social and economic progress, while ensuring a healthy and productive life for people – without compromising future generations and their needs.

sustainable development goals

The sustainable development goals approved by the 2030 agenda were established by United Nations in 2015. 

These goals help us understand sustainability and its importance. 

These 17 goals work under the 3 pillars of sustainability.

They take into account a global vision that is comprehensive in scope: from the elimination of poverty and inequality to the fight for climate change, thus establishing the milestones for a better world.

Sustainability is not an enemy to progress, technology, or profitable and scalable businesses.  

Corporate sustainability is a new path to create proposals, projects, and businesses in a more intelligent way, with a better use of resources, creating smart processes to ensure resilience.

The Fashion Alive project is dedicated to the development and promotion of zero waste pattern-making and fashion design, for a more sustainable, and enduring future.

Follow us, and keep up to date on the most recent developments as we inch closer towards the Fashion Events, which will be taking place in three different countries across Europe.
