Impact investing: Sustainability in fashion

Impact investing: Sustainability in fashion

Sustainable fashion brands case studies from the African continent

Fashion production is responsible for 10% of humanity’s global carbon emissions, dries up water sources, and pollutes rivers and streams. The majority of our clothes are used for a very short time, with 85% of all textiles dumped each year (UNECE, 2018), and washing certain kinds of fabrics sends a significant amount of microplastics into our oceans.

Through the lens of two case studies, this session will explore how we can invest in and achieve a carbon-neutral fashion industry, which built on equality, social justice, and environmental and ecological integrity.
