For the love of planet: Addressing apparel’s sustainability challenge

Sustainability is a huge and complex issue — one that was long overlooked but is currently begging for our attention. As consumers, corporate leaders, and change-makers, we have a responsibility to influence change and innovate for the sake of our planet and future The fashion industry, in particular, is seeing a shift toward circularity and more sustainable practices. With public perception shifting and consumers becoming more conscious, brands and retailers quickly have to follow suit. But what does it take to change the trajectory of an entire industry? Michael Colarossi of Avery Dennison will navigate the challenge of breaking down silos, engaging stakeholders across the value chain, and collaborating as one to push a shared sustainability agenda forward.

Scaling Circular Fashion in North America

What could a circular fashion industry look like in 2050? The need for urgent action is clear: While the lifespan of individual garments dwindles, the environmental footprint of the apparel industry continues to grow. But where there’s inefficiency, there’s often opportunity. From renewable and recycled inputs to new business models such as repair, rental and recommerce to end of life management and more — like enabling technologies, policies and partnerships — the apparel industry is ripe for a makeover. Experts and innovators will share their aspirations for the future of manufacturing, traceability, and fabric innovation.
