For the ongoing Milano Green Forum, C.L.A.S.S. was part of a panel discussion on sustainable fashion business supply chain, on September 13, 2019. C.L.A.S.S. is a platform that promotes responsible projects for the textile and fashion sectors. Milano Green Forum is a cultural project that aims to educate the civil society on an ongoing global shift.

C.L.A.S.S. founder Giusy Bettoni will open a debate with Flavio Sciuccati, senior partner European House Ambrosetti; Francesco Marini, vice-president Confindustria Toscana Nord; Francesco Merlino, owner Vegea; Enrico Gessner, director Enka Italia; Kirsi Seppalainen, vice-president Stora Enso; Andrea Rosso, founder Myar; Annamaria Rugarli, sustainability & responsibility senior director EMEA, VF International; and Stefania Ricci, director Museo Salvatore Ferragamo.

“Everyone has a personal sustainable project, is the Milano Green Forum motto. As citizens, our own project should be about responsible and aware consumption and lifestyle. Starting from the wardrobe. We wanted to invite innovators and entrepreneurs who are leading a real global green revolution in which Italy and Milan play a key role. The textile industry and brands share their insights about how the sector is changing. New materials, re-use, and recycling, smart innovation, circular economy, global, and local strategies, not a fashion offer that only lives on catwalks but one that we all wear every day. Because when we talk about sustainability, the final consumer can truly contribute to drive the change,” C.L.A.S.S. founder Giusy Bettoni said in a press release.

“Today, more than ever, sustainable fashion is a hot topic. Not only in this industry, we are witnessing a sustainable change, but also transversally in all the areas that the Milano Green Forum is addressing; the goal of the plenary is to witness how different areas intersect, through sustainability”, Federico Manca, founder of the Milano Green Forum.
