What makes this conference different?
Focused content designed for action and practice – the focus of the agenda and event structure are designed to provide actionable tools and practical insights that you can then apply to your own company.More time for genuine discussion – the panel and networking sessions have been built to provide time for in-depth debate and meaningful exchange beyond introductions and superficial outlines of initiatives.
Breakout tracks – At the conference we will be running multiple breakout tracks focused on climate action, sustainable design and material innovation, responsible sourcing and ethical trade, and sustainability from the farm to the shop floor. During the breakout sessions attendees will be split across the four simultaneous tracks, enabling more participatory and constructive dialogue to take place under Chatham House rules. We encourage delegates to join as a team to ensure you don’t miss anything across the four tracks.
The conference itself will attract 350+ delegates representing corporates, NGOs, suppliers, traders, development agencies, investors, government bodies and other relevant organisations. Attendees will represent a broad range of the key stakeholders involved in defining, planning and implementing sustainable practices across apparel and textile supply chains.
Delegates range from senior management up to CEO level, primarily from CSR, sustainability, supply chain, procurement, ethical trade, corporate affairs and corporate communication functions.
