This two-day business conference will address how brands must align and adapt practices to deliver on growing stakeholder expectations.

  • Social impact
    How to tackle the challenges in ensuring a truly ethical supply chain and delivering a clear, positive impact for workers

  • Environmental performance
    The leading practices to implement circularity, drive regenerative agriculture, and take effective action on climate to achieve net-zero targets

  • Factory engagement and manufacturing
    Brand and factory perspectives on how best to transform factories and the manufacturing process to ensure sustainable and ethical supply

  • Consumer trust and expectations
    How to credibly communicate sustainability efforts and progress, empower consumers with better information, and build trust with supply chain transparency

On 25 April Nienke Steen, our Institute's Global Lead for Apparel, Textiles and Footwear, will be moderating a discussion on material choices and how we can reach more advanced sustainability metrics on material use and impact.
