We should all want to know where our fibres come from, how our materials and products are made, and what their impact is on people and the planet. It is becoming essential to have real-time visibility of supply chain journeys to understand the impact of a product as it happens. This cultural shift in sustainability will make transparency a prerequisite to real impact. This panel will explore end-to-end traceability and what it takes to get sectoral adoption at scale.

Every fibre tells a story; How does fashion become Transparent?

Redefining Success: Beyond Social Responsibility

In this two part session, we welcome Gary Shaw, Kathmandu's Social Impact Manger to the stage to talk about the existing mindset, model and foundation upon which we currently conduct business and how it has proven to be illusory, unsustainable and destructive.  Modern Slavery is just one of the many wider social and environmental realities that completely undermines any notion of “business as usual”.   Creating an ethical sourcing policy and adopting some additional “best practices” are on their own woefully insufficient and actually increase the risk of consumer backlash, public exposure and financial loss.  For those business leaders who want to remain profitable and continue to add value to the marketplace, the invitation is to question our previously taken for granted definitions of success and consider a more beneficial mindset, model and future.  

Gary will then be joined by Julie Boulton who will host our Social Responsibility panel discussion

Where we will talk about what assumptions we have been making about the human element of sustainability that the pandemic and climate change has shone a light on and forced us to question these practices.


Where do we need to focus and how do we create new mindsets and business models that are based on transparency and social protection.


We ask, can scale and ethics ever exist?
