SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, presents a complimentary webinar, ‘Ready to De-Carbonize Your Fashion Business?’ This event takes place on Thursday, July 7 and is aimed at senior management sustainability/environment, health and safety (EHS)/compliance teams of brands and retailers.
Following the Paris Agreement at COP21, carbon emission reduction developments have made it important for the industry to work towards the carbon neutral policies which many countries have committed to. The European Commission’s proposed Product Environmental Footprint (PEF), as a mechanism for measuring environmental performance will also affect textile and footwear manufacturers and retailers. With increasing public concern for sustainability now also influencing consumer choice, it is vital that the fashion industry gain a clear understanding of how to meet these new challenges. Many international brands have already signed the Charter for Climate Action.
Presenter Eric Wang will explore industry moves towards sustainability, showing how carbon emission reduction and PEF and Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) will impact sustainable fashion, and how businesses can plan comprehensive carbon solutions with SGS’s help.
This webinar will cover these topics in detail, providing a practical guide for developing compliant strategies and solutions.
