Sustainable Fashion

The fashion industry is responsible for about 10% of humanity’s carbon emissions; water pollution and human rights violations. How can brands develop environmentally and economically sustainable business and production models?

Food systems are responsible for about 70% of fresh water consumption, 60% of biodiversity loss, and up to a third of human greenhouse gas emissions. But food systems can also be regenerative for the land and communities.

Sustainable Manufacturing

From air and water contamination, to land destruction and more, the environmental impacts of manufacturing are vast. But manufacturing is essential for our societal and economic development. How are manufacturers tackling the challenge?

Globally, the use of energy represents the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions from human activities. The burning of fossil fuels for energy alone is linked to about two thirds of global greenhouse gas emissions – yet the alternatives are vast, and it’s time to invest in them.
