Cara said: “Each panellist discussed taking meaningful steps towards a responsible value chain, beyond using buzzwords in a brand’s marketing terms or by producing capsule collections. Drawing upon the research of the change maker GCNYC Fair Fashion Center, I discussed profitable sustainability and was able to offer insight into proving the business case for sustainability.”
