Ryan Young Climate+ Awards 2023

Textile Exchange’s annual Ryan Young Climate+ Awards recognize individuals and teams that show a bold and courageous spirit and commitment to accelerating action towards its Climate+ goal in the fashion, textile, and apparel industry.

British Pasture Leather, the Tapestry Coachtopia team, and Circ are the 2023 winners of the Pioneering Collective category, celebrating teams who, through their collaboration, have become catalysts for driving positive change.

The winner of the Rising Star category is Jana van den Bergen, Innovation Manager at Fashion for Good. This category recognizes the work of individuals with less than 10 years of industry experience, spotlighting the next generation of changemakers who are challenging the status quo and leading the way towards solutions for a better tomorrow.

The winners received a free full-access pass to the conference and will also be awarded five mentorship hours with Textile Exchange experts.
