ABOUT THIS EVENT
In this webinar, join us to discuss issues in fashion: past, present and future.
Fashion is a $1.7 trillion dollar industry, yet is one of the least regulated in the world. The environmental destruction and social consequences are getting too big to ignore. With that, we will explore the need for greater transparency, oversight and accountability in the fashion supply chain.
In addition, we’ll explore current EU regulations, share proposed upcoming US policies that will dramatically change the way we do business, while providing examples of companies making significant inroads in reuse, recycling, circularity and beyond.
Audience members can expect practical and actionable takeaways, including:
– An understanding of historical and current harm the fashion industry is doing both environmentally and socially to the planet.
– Awareness of action steps that can be taken to support transparency within the supply chain.
– Which regulations, both pending and already passed might affect your business.
– How your company should be prepared to navigate these policies from an environment and fiduciary risk standpoint.
– Innovative industry examples as fuel for thought.
This webinar Is Intended for senior-level CSR, ESG, and Sustainability professionals.
