How can fashion companies play a role in restoring soil, biodiversity and climate?
For many around the world, the link between fashion and agriculture is all but lost. With cotton, wool, rubber, leather and more coming from agricultural products, however, the fashion industry heavily relies on land. While in the food industry, more and more companies are touting the importance of regenerative agriculture to restore soil, biodiversity and climate, the discourse in fashion is still just beginning.
Leaders in the fashion industry are showing us that through openness, research and collaboration, they can develop supply chain systems whereby farmers are supported to put in place better agricultural systems. These regenerative systems rebuild soil health, enabling it to draw down carbon from the air and fostering biodiversity.
For our Round Table ‘Fashion Stewards of the Land‘, we will bring together leaders and experts who are actively putting in place systems to ensure that regenerative fashion techniques are used in making fashion products. In an atmosphere of openness and non-competitiveness, we will discuss the following questions:
- Which leading role can fashion brands take to put in place regenerative agriculture systems?
- In how far are should – or can – companies seek to localise supply chains to work closer to farmers?
- How can fashion companies take consumers along in restoring relationships to nature?
Our round table panelists will be invited personally. If you are involved in regenerative agriculture for the fashion industry, or would like to put forward someone for the discussion, please let us know.
