Our business goal is not based only on a commitment to climate change, but on social and ethical values. We intend to help to create quality jobs, fighting against the precariousness of the sector and offering opportunities to different groups, especially women and young entrepreneurs, contributing to several United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The end of poverty is a factor of relevance for this project, as it aims to create jobs under a social and ethical scope. We want workers along the entire production chain to have the opportunity to have access to decent work. In line with this goal, we also contribute to the achievement of zero hunger.
We also pursue to support the achievement of gender equality. Aware that the textile and fashion industry employs a high percentage of women, through the circular economy and sustainable industry model, we intend women dedicated to this sector to obtain quality jobs. In doing so, the project has an aspiration of promoting decent work and economic growth, having a direct positive impact on workers. Furthermore, with our support for SMEs and start-ups in the sector, we are committed to building resilient infrastructures, promoting sustainable industrialisation and, above all, fostering innovation. Through the generation of jobs based on fair trade and favourable conditions for all professionals in the production chain, we are committed to reducing inequalities.
Beyond generating change in the production, the project also aspires to favouring both responsible production and consumption, offering consumers the keys to create a sustainable wardrobe, under the circular economy model. In addition to the social perspective of the project, the environmental value is fundamental. With this initiative, we want to raise awareness and contribute to the reduction of the environmental impact and the high pollution of the sector, contributing the Climate Action objective. Last, this is an international project, made up of entities from different European countries (Spain, France, and Belgium), which collaborates with other entities, associations and projects from the European and international spectrum, in order to achieve transferability and replicability. Thus, one of the identifying aspects of CirCoAX.
