Luxury natural diamond jewellery giant De Beers has exited its flagship store on London’s Bond Street and into a new concept store next door that reflects a new-look blend of heritage, modernity and sustainability.
Companies around the world must boost sustainability efforts, not just for the planet, but also for their bottom line as consumers globally believe businesses are responsible for a whole host of sustainability issues.
The UK fashion industry is on notice. The government is launching a major initiative to crack down on workplace abuse, with particular attention to garment production, in a bid to improve and protect workers’ rights.
Be warned, consumer sustainability issues may be more important than you think. Over half of people in the UK (56%) are less likely to buy from organisations with a weak sustainability record, according to a new survey.
As sustainability events go, this is big. The British Fashion Council (BFC) is hosting an inaugural 'Institute of Positive Fashion Forum' (IPF Forum) on 10 June with a heavyweight line-up of topics and presenters.
