Transparency in the fashion and footwear supply chain: what's next?

I temi della sostenibilità e della tracciabilità nella moda e nella calzatura sono sempre di più al centro dell’attenzione dei governi, delle imprese e dei consumatori e sempre più si fondono insieme in una logica di trasparenza tra produttore e consumatore sulle materie prime e sui processi utilizzati. Ciò impone necessariamente una logica di filiera. Ma cosa ci riserva il prossimo futuro? Quali sono le strategie che le aziende stanno progettando per i prossimi anni? Attraverso l’opinione di esperti e di imprese del settore, il workshop sarà l’occasione per fare il punto su cosa è stato fatto fino ad oggi e quali sono le sfide del prossimo triennio.
