Seminar Session, 16th Jan at 11:00am

"Sustainable Sourcing: Fresh Challenges, New Opportunities” 

A 250% increase in consumer engagement with the sustainable fashion campaign Fashion Revolution occurred in 2017. Also, troubling new evidence shows that the fashion industry has contributed to plastic contaminating 83% of the world’s water table. How can you tap into massive growth in this interest in sustainability, and at the same time future proof your business? In this expert panel, we address: 

  • Microfibre pollution – why this matters to your business – and what you can do about it
  • How sustainable production can be a competitive advantage for your business
  • Getting buy-in on a sustainable business model from your directors and your team

Tamsin Lejeune, CEO, Ethical Fashion Group and CO moderating the discussion and debate with Safia Minney MBE, Co-founder, People Tree, Oya Barlas Bingül, Development Manager, Lenzing Group, Eric Roosen, CEO, StarSock – Healthy Seas Initiative
