Monitoring the change in technological innovation factors, such as artificial intelligence, biotechnology, blockchain, industrial digitization, CRISPR, luxury up-cycling.
Attention to the sustainable conversion of global ethical fashion, according to internationally shared ethical-environmental factors, it is mandatory to keep “digital-first” customers on the frontier of the digital land-grab.
Together, we can:
Reduce the environmental impact of the fashion sector: fashion is the second most polluting industry in the world after oil (World Economic Forum).
Reduce global energy consumption: fashion consumes more COXNUMX than air and sea transport combined (UN data).
Reduce emissions of polluting gases: fashion is responsible for 10% of global greenhouse gas (CO2) emissions every year.
Reduce water consumption: fashion contributes to the dissipation of 20% of the total water resources used in various working phases (dyeing, printing, finishing and of course also to maintain the cotton plantations).
Promote the use of innovative materials: investing in technology and research, it is possible to activate the virtuosity of the circular economy and avoid the use of raw materials that contain PVC, azo dyes, formaldehyde and heavy metals, substances that are harmful to both the environment and humans.
