Duration: 60 min
Circularity is a massive opportunity for the fashion industry, but currently less than 1% of clothing is recycled into new garments. Circular business models for fashion, which allow companies to make revenue decoupled from production of new garments, represent a significant opportunity for new and better growth in the fashion industry. Resale, rental, repair, and remake can reduce the notoriously high carbon footprint of the industry, generate billions in revenue and disrupt market leaders.
Learn the opportunities and challenges faced by circular fashion with industry experts Christiane Dolva Törnberg (Strategy Lead at H&M Foundation), Josefine Olsson (Accenture Europe Lead for Future Tech), Annie Gullingsrud (Chief Strategy Officer of EON) and Atalay Atasu (INSEAD Professor of Technology and Operations Management and the Bianca and James Pitt Chair in Environmental Sustainability).
