PANEL 1: September 9th at 7PM ET

Focus: Policy

Many private businesses are moving the needle forward with sustainability solutions, innovations and self-monitoring. However, the hard truth is that the majority of fashion companies are not implementing practices to reduce their environmental impacts and ensure dignified work. This panel will discuss the urgent need for government regulation and the different approaches the US can take to create a just and clean future while prioritizing the communities that are most adversely affected by climate change.

Panelists include: Ayesha Barenblat of ReMake, Kerry Bannigan of Conscious Fashion Campaign and SDG Media Zone, and more to be announced!

Moderator: Whitney Bauck

PANEL 2: September 10th at 7PM ET

Focus: Waste/Circularity

Americans on average throw away 70 pounds of clothing per person, per year according to the EPA. The explosion of apparel creation over the last 20 years has created a huge problem in our world where overproduction of cheap goods begets overconsumption. Donating your clothing has its own set-backs, this discussion brings together advocates and experts knowledgeable about the end-of-life of garments answering questions such as: Where do our clothes really go when we throw them away? How do you properly recycle them? And how do we get the circular economy running at scale?

Panelists include: Alissa Westervelt of The City of New York Department of Sanitation, Lauren Ritchie of the Eco Justice Project, and more to be announced!

Moderator: Julia Gall of Marie Claire

 

PANEL 3: September 11th at 7PM ET 

Focus: Fashion Data

The fashion industry is often described as being the 2nd biggest GHG contributor, behind oil. That statement is not correct, as it cannot be proven. The lack of good data in this industry makes measuring a brand's impact nearly impossible to identify, and therefore makes brands unable to reach goals, such as those set forth by the UN. There are also very few fashion professionals that understand how to analyze data, sometimes leaving the interpretation of gathered "facts" up to marketers who spread it to the masses. The absence of one set of standards for how brands measure ESG, presents the inability to compare one brand's progress to another's, further prohibiting the ability to regulate the industry. Understanding that the fashion industry must have verified, solid data in order to implement meaningful solutions, or as journalist Alden Wicker puts it, "as long as we have only garbage information, we’ll only get garbage action from brands and governments to fix the problem."

Panelists include: Maxine Bedat of New Standard Institute, and more to be announced!

Moderator: Michelle Gabriel of GCNYC
