January – December 2021 | Cotton Sustainability Digital Series hosted by BCI

We are delighted to be launching a new Cotton Sustainability Digital Series for 2021. Sessions and speakers originally curated for the in-person 2021 Global Cotton Sustainability Conference will now be coming to you live online, at more accessible rates and times across the entire year.

Join BCI and partners through 2021 for the monthly Cotton Sustainability Digital Series, where the entire sector will come together to shape a more sustainable future for cotton.

Connect with industry leaders and experts to explore the entire cotton value chain. Episodes will focus on topics including climate action, innovation today and social sustainability.

Register to join us online, where together, we will discover solutions for more sustainable cotton sector.

What will 2030 look like and how do we respond as brands, manufacturers, NGOs and citizens?

Join Lucy Shea, Group CEO, Futerra, for an exploration of the sustainability trends that are shaping the world around us and the fashion and textiles sector. In particular, we will look at how companies who embed sustainability have proven to be more resilient in 2020 and are building back better, becoming the businesses that our future needs. The next ten years will see the disruption of almost every industry, driven by our fast-changing world and the shifting desires of consumers, especially Gen Z. Learn more about Lucy Shea.
