Conscious Capitalism Boston recently co-sponsored an event with WISE called Innovation and Impact in Sustainable Fashion, Supply Chains and EcoCouture.
The event was held at the Microsoft NERD center in Cambridge on Monday, August 8th. From the invite:
From the runway to your local H&M in weeks, we are living in an age of fast fashion. Clothes are made quickly and cheaply in factories around the globe at an unprecedented pace. What are large retailers doing to ensure sustainable sourcing practices, fair labor conditions, and environmental best practices in their supply chain? As investors and as conscious consumers, how can we make informed decisions about the fashion industry?
Kathryn Hilderbrand, Founder and CEO, Good Clothing Company
Colleen Vien, Sustainability Director, Timberland
James Gifford, Director of Impact, TAU Investment Management
We hope this is the first of many collaborations!
