Better Narrative
Ethics as their North Star

Better Narrative is a start-up born in 2018 with the desire to transform the apparel industry. Deeply rooted in ethics and sustainability, this start-up is fundamentally anchored in sustainable development and has sought to establish the right foundations for governance and planning. It is anchoring its values within its business model at the very beginning of its adventure, with questions focused on different key building blocks:

- Methodology and strategy: How do we establish our strategy and operational plan to achieve our mission and vision?

- Stakeholder engagement: How do we engage our stakeholders and make this project 'our common project'?
 - End-of-life product solutions: How do we think about and manage the end-of-life of our products in order to develop concrete solutions to move towards a circular economy?

 - Partnerships: Who would we like to engage with in order to advance our business model and increase our impact?
