The Canvas transforms vacant spaces into hubs focused on sustainable development. It empowers rising, ethical businesses from around the world and provides them with access to global markets, services and technologies using the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals as a framework.

Its priority is to empower the growth of ethical fashion brands by connecting them with opportunities to scale their businesses through a unified brick and mortar sales point, while providing services, tools and analytics to enable innovation and foster growth. The Canvas believes the demise of fast fashion will be accelerated through a connected network of sustainability-focused businesses working together to stimulate progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.
