The conference offered plenty of opportunities for matchmaking with experts of the industry and sharing business prospects. Consumer psychologist, proffesor Simonetta Carbonaro, started off the conference with fascinating insights into what the industry really needs to be transformative by bringing in examples from many different parts of society demonstrating the challenges faced in attempting to apply change in our industry. The Fashion Panel from Levi’s, Theory and Stella McCartney provided us with a unique view inside the world of fashion companies and some of the particular issues they deal with on a daily basis. During the Traceability Panel, we heard from 3 companies, Ikea, Lenzing and Eataly, about the challenges of implementing traceability back into supply chains as well as the commonalities in each of their three stories.
"I am so pleased with the 5th Bluesign conference and what we were able to bring to the industry. There were many appreciative comments about taking the sustainability conversation to a deeper level given the challenges we are faced with today. Bluesign looks forward the continued solution-oriented work to really bring about transformative action and change to our industry," said Jill Dumain, CEO, Bluesign technologies.
Part of the conference was designed as round-table sessions, where participants and speakers worked on solutions and formed an industry commitment that targeted the direction the industry should move towards in order to ensure a successful blue way.
"We commit to integrating traceability into regular business practice, creating an aligned directory platform where information is shared and exposed to generate value for the industry and consumers. Furthermore, we will educate and listen to the younger generations, collaborate along a circular product life to align for a strong call to action. We are the designers of the innovation processes needed to make a continued positive impact leading to a better world, make sustainability a basic expectation and transform mindsets around manufacturing and consumption," concluded Dumain.
