SUSTAINABILITY SALON SERIES: SUPPLY CHAIN

ASPIRE TO INSPIRE

Arch & Hook’s Sustainability Salon Series is a series of a monthly live free digital event exploring sustainability and best practices in the world of fashion, retail, and beyond. The series have an informational and educational purpose for fashion and retail professionals, which is supported by the Conscious Fashion Campaign and the United Nations Office for Partnerships.

We invite you to virtually join our 4th session of our digital Salon Series which will be taking place on 20 October 2020 (9 am PST, 12 pm EST, 6 pm CEST).

During this session, we will explore the importance and impact of (un)sustainable supply chain infrastructures and operations. What are the key challenges brands face in supporting and/or working with/or building supply chain operations in a more sustainable way? How has the COVID-19 crisis further accentuated the negative impact of unsustainable supply chains? We will also discuss the importance of diversity and fair trade in the supply chain.

We are happy to have once again Kerry Bannigan from the Conscious Fashion Campaign who will be the moderator for this session. Kerry will be in conversation with sustainability leaders who have integrated environmentally well-grounded choices into supply chain management, have seized value creation opportunities, and offer significant competitive advantages.
