The event, called “Sustainable and ethical cotton sourcing – How to get it right, and make it pay for your business“, will be on 16th-17th March, 2015 in London.
The Sustainable Cotton Forum will bring together highly experienced practitioners and key NGOs around a focused agenda, in order to get to the core of the key issues surrounding the cotton supply chain.
The agenda is designed to be highly interactive (NO PPT!) and engaging so the issues discussed are those that really matter to you and your peers.
- Cotton sustainability: what does it all mean anyhow? Outside organic and fairtrade, what do we mean by sustainable or ethical cotton?
- Hear from 12 major brands how they made the business case for serious cotton action on sustainability – and how they measure and report progress
