INNOVATIVE BUSINESS MODELS THAT WILL INFLUENCE THE WAY WE SEE, WEAR, SHARE AND CARE FOR FASHION.
This month, Impact Hub Basel, Good Brand Guru, ecos and Ziel Zukunft Biennale are uniting efforts to bring together innovators from the fashion industry seeking to change the way we see, buy, wear and care for fashion through circular business models.
During the event, the keynote presenters will take us through case studies of implementing circular strategies within their organisations, the challenges they face and the opportunities they see. This will be followed by 7-10 local businesses showcasing what they are doing to make the fashion industry more sustainable and circular.
CLOSE THE LOOP
We seek to close the loop in our production-consumption models, moving toward a circular economy.We recognize that our planet’s resources must be managed responsibly. Consequently, we strive to design, innovate, produce, sell, and manage according to international standards for sustainable production and consumption according to circular economy principles.
