We love getting the word out about how we save companies money while being sustainable, but we need your help.
The fashion and textile industries are at a crossroads. We have been taking finite resources from the ground for too long and making products to be used and thrown away. This "take-make-waste" model of production supports a linear economy, which is no longer viable. By contrast, a circular economy aims to eliminate waste and pollution from the design stage, keep products and materials in use, and promote natural regenerative systems.
The future belongs to companies that believe in a return on purpose as much as the return on investment.
Jordan Alliance Group (JAG) is a Black-owned, women-led boutique management consulting firm focused on the fashion industry's transition towards sustainability and capitalizing on a circular economy.
We work with retail companies to drive purpose, performance, and profits. In addition, we partner with academic organizations to educate and create opportunities for current and future leaders.
We strategically align business transformation initiatives to ESG, SDG, and CSR. We deliver strategic advice and guidence through our integrated set of thought leadership, education, and consulting services.
Leading with our core values of honesty and integrity, we build meaningful, personalized partnerships with our clients that revolve around sustainability in the product, performance, profit, people, and the planet.
It is imperative that the Fashion Industry become sustainable while driving performance and profits—ultimately caring more for people, products, profits, and the planet.
We help retailers transition towards sustainable business practices by integrating DEI, SCR, SDG, ESG into all business strategies.
