Partnership with International Sustainable Fashion Design Competition Aligns with Committed to More™ Approach
UPS (NYSE: UPS) today announced that it will support The EcoChic Design Award 2014/2015 (the “Award”) as the Official Logistics Partner. The Award is the world’s first international sustainable fashion design competition which brings together Asian and European fashion designers that share a vision for an environmentally friendly fashion industry.
“The sponsorship of The EcoChic Design Award exemplifies UPS’s “Committed to More™” approach towards sustainability and social responsibility, which is a promise to do more for the environment, our customers and our communities around the world. As one of the largest global logistics players, UPS strives to support our customers in the most efficient and responsible ways possible,” said William Ng, Managing Director of UPS Hong Kong and Macau. “By continuing to innovate, adapt and collaborate with likeminded organisations, we hope to have greater positive long-term impact on the environment regionally and globally.”
“It’s great to work with a globally-renowned logistics company that echoes The EcoChic Design Award’s sustainable values. Just as we believe that there should be no fashion or functional compromises when it comes to sustainable fashion, UPS applies similar principles to deliver faultless logistics service that incorporates a vast range of integrated sustainability initiatives; from the carbon neutral shipping option to employing the use of alternative fuel vehicles. Thanks to UPS, we are delivering our goal of running the world’s top sustainable fashion design competition and ensuring that the biggest impact is on our global audiences, rather than on the environment,” said Christina Dean, Founder and CEO of Redress.
