The fashion industry faces a profound and comprehensive transformation along the entire value chain.
New laws, increased digitalisation, and changing consumer behavior are just some of the factors that are completely changing the rules in an industry generating a global turnover of more than 2 trillion USD!
The focal point of this transformation is the climate and green transition, which will impact all parts of the fashion and textile value chain. Cross-sector collaboration, innovation, entrepreneurship, and new ways of working together will be needed to achieve this. This session will discuss the challenges, and opportunities and show solutions built by Fashion Innovation Center and Lund University together with the industry. The focal point of this transformation is the climate and green transition, which will impact all parts of the fashion and textile value chain.
