Forests for fashion

The ‘Forests for Fashion’ initiative resulted from a fruitful collaboration between the UNECE/FAO Forestry and Timber Section, PEFC International and several PEFC members, and Cittadellarte Fashion.

It is in tune with the recently adopted Vancouver Invitation on Forest Products for a Better Future, which recognizes the value of sustainably produced wood and wood-based products as environmentally friendly materials. Award-winning actress and UNDP Goodwill Ambassador, Michelle Yeoh, has also been a strong supporter of ‘Forests for Fashion’, and stars in the UN TV production on sustainable fashion, Made in Forests.

UNECE is also part of the UN Alliance for Sustainable Fashion, which was launched at the UN Environment Assembly. It aims at strengthening cooperation among UN agencies and programmes on the social, environmental and economic dimensions of the fashion industry.
