We are a global initiative collaborating to design the connected & circular future of fashion.
Our mission is to incentivize the adoption of circular business practices essential to the long-term health of our ecosystem, environment, and economy.
The Connect Fashion Initiative was founded by Natasha Franck, Founder and CEO of Eon, to establish a shared digital system for products to be identified and managed by all stakeholders of the circular economy.
The global and pre-competitive initiative facilitates the essential collaboration between industry leaders to design systems for our connected and circular future. The group is introducing an open, public standard for CircularID™ to support the implementation and adoption of circular and sustainable economic models.
We believe sustainable innovation stems from systems that align economic incentives with environmental health, fostering a win-win scenario for the future of business and our planet.
