The Global Leadership Award in Sustainable Apparel (GLASA) was launched in 2013 to inspire bold and courageous leadership in the apparel sector and to mobilize key stakeholders around promising ideas or practices that can significantly increase the sustainability performance of the apparel industry.


GLASA is an initiative from The Sustainable Fashion Academy with support of the Association of Swedish Fashion Brands, Axfoundation and The Prince of Wales International Sustainability Unit.
