The Road to 2030 | Promises Vs. Progress
Our industry does a lot of talking about sustainability. Be it low-impact collections, lower-emissions goals and forecasts or the holy grail of carbon neutrality.
The second edition of the Road to 2030 Sustainability Summit will build on the topics and themes of last year’s inaugural event. Titled “Promises vs. Progress” the day’s program will examine the often large disparity between ambitions and action. While 80 percent of companies in a recent Sourcing Journal poll stated they had defined sustainability targets, a mere 20 percent have any measuring tools in place. For true progress to occur, this must change. Let’s foster that change together.
