The site is organised so that you can get straight to what you need, in the format you require: from downloadable resources to directories to video training for your team.

2. Promoting and sharing best practice

With thousands of businesses across the world dedicated to sustainable practices in the fashion sector, the same research is regularly duplicated and best practice not built upon. The SOURCE promotes and shares the steps taken by leaders in the field.

Through the Fellowship 500 we highlight and promote the work of leading businesses and entrepreneurs to buyers, press and the wider industry. All new members of the Fellowship 500 benefit from a dedicated broadcast, presenting their initiative to over 6000 industry professionals, press, buyers, suppliers and brands, as well as significant promotion through the SOURCE Database and events. (See 4 below for further details)

Subscribers benefit from full access to SOURCE Intelligence, including hundreds of reports, training materials, market updates, and resources, put together by our research team and over 30 contributors world wide, to help you to make the right business decisions and grow your success against a triple bottom line. The majority of content is accessible to subscribers / fellows only.
