TORONTO , Aug. 24 /CSRwire/ - C&A Foundation and GlobeScan will be hosting an SDG Leadership Forum on Goal 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production) on September 12, 2018 focused on how to accelerate the transition to a circular economy inside and outside of the fashion industry.
The online, real-time moderated discussion will bring together a global line-up of guest contributors and leading thinkers representing brands, manufacturers, funders, innovators, academics and NGOs. The aim is to explore ways to scale up the adoption of new business models and fast-track innovation and collaboration at the circular manufacturing level. Together we will brainstorm ideas on how technology, the sharing economy and collaboration can be leveraged more effectively to close the circular consumption loop with consumers.
This is an opportunity to contribute to the global dialogue on the circular economy and make connections with renowned experts and leading thinkers. The event will comprise of two sessions, scheduled to cover different time zones. We will focus on the same topics in both sessions to ensure the event allows for a truly global discussion.
