Sustainability in Apparel Industry : fibercasts
The University of Delaware cordially invites you to join our next live, audio fibercast -- "Environmental Sustainability in the Apparel Industry" -- on Friday, July 31, 2009 at 2 p.m. (EDT).
Host Marsha Dickson, professor and chairperson of fashion and apparel studies at UD, will be joined by four experts from industry and academia: Rick Horwitch, vice president of solutions business development and marketing for Bureau Veritas
Consumer Products Services; Will Phillips, manager of the corporate environmental strategy at Under Armour, Inc.; Suzanne Loker, professor emerita of fiber science and apparel design from Cornell University; and Huantian Cao, associate professor of fashion and apparel studies at UD.
They will explore these and other important topics:
- What does it mean for a clothing or footwear company to be environmentally sustainable?
- What specific policies can apparel retailers and brands implement to become more environmentally sustainable?
- How does pursuing environmental sustainability impact the bottom line?
- How can companies measure environmental sustainability in a transparent and cost-effective manner?
The fibercast also will delve into recent findings from UD's Sustainable Apparel Initiative's guide, "Creating a More Environmentally Sustainable Apparel Business: Policies for Brands and Retailers," which contains best practices that companies can use to promote sustainability throughout their supply and value chain, from production to consumption to re-use.
