Kickstarting Climate Action: A Webinar Series for Apparel & Textile Brands and Retailers

Target Audiences

The webinar series is primarily aimed at medium and smaller size apparel brands and retailers who have not yet started their climate work. However, it is also relevant for companies who have relatively advanced climate work and now want to educate additional members in their organization regarding climate action basics. It will also be valuable for producers and suppliers to brands and retailers. The series is relevant for companies in a range of apparel and textile segments – everyday fashion, luxury, outdoor, sport, workwear, laundry services – and other actors who purchase, sell or produce textiles, including those supporting the public sector and municipalities. The focus is mainly on clothing and textiles, as opposed to hard goods.

Series Objectives
  • Get updated on the latest climate developments in the apparel and textiles industry.
  • Learn what standards and methods are used to measure & report on GHGs in apparel and textiles.
  • Understand what needs to be measured and reported in Scopes 1, 2 and 3.
  • Learn what actions are generally required to reduce emissions.
  • Get insights from company representative(s) already working with climate action.
  • Better understand the STICA process & expectations for action learning network members.

Webinars will be recorded and available for participants to view for a limited period of time after the webinar series.
