Don t miss any climate action events in 2021, this climate change conference will focus entirely on supply chain decarbonisation. Throughout the conference, we’ll focus on the practical steps that businesses can take to shift mindsets from ‘less harm’ to ‘more good’.
Urgent action is required to limit global temperature rises and the role of business here is key. With Scope 3 emissions often accounting for the highest proportion of total corporate emissions, this key climate action conference (27-29 Sep, 2021) will focus entirely on supply chain decarbonization.
Over the three conference days, we’ll assess the main challenges in Scope 3 reduction, and highlight the opportunities and innovations that can enable business to deliver on net-zero commitments. We will bring together a global audience of key actors to ensure a platform for genuine debate and discussion, with a focus on the practical guidance and steps that business can take now to shift mindsets from ‘less harm’ to ‘more good’.

This three day virtual business conference will debate and showcase real world solutions to the most pressing and urgent challenges in commodity supply chains. We’ll look at what’s driving value chain change and how business is working to deliver on increasingly difficult sustainability targets. We’ll also discuss forest and nature positive strategies on the route to net zero, and the practicalities of these targets on the ground.
The concept of regenerative agriculture is being hailed as the new paradigm in sustainable supply chains. While it is predominantly food brands that have acted fastest to make significant commitments to regenerative, the future of cotton production could be based on similar practices that aim to restore, renew and replenish the environment. However, big questions still stand on definitions, processes, outcomes, and crucially what this actually looks like on the ground.
In this hour-long webinar, we took a closer look at how regenerative practices can be applied to cotton farming. We discussed:
- How regenerative apparel can be defined and how it differs from sustainable fashion
- The opportunities and challenges for brands, farmers and partners in implementing such program
- The key players in this transition and their roles in ensuring that these practices are scaled
- How to determine the impact and specific outcomes of regenerative programs
- Alison Ward, CEO, CottonConnect
- Rachel Kanter Kepnes, manager of supply chain social responsibility, farms and special programs, Patagonia
- Sheetal Nischal, sustainability projects manager, Primark
- Hanna Denes, Climate+ Strategy, senior manager, Textile Exchange
- Peter Stanbury, senior associate, Innovation Forum
