Kickstarting Climate Action: A Webinar Series for Apparel & Textile Brands and Retailers

Offered by The Scandinavian Textile Initiative for Climate Action (STICA) and Partners

Today apparel brands and retailers – and all companies working with textile and apparel – are expected to have a robust and credible climate action strategy. To ensure companies understand the importance of climate action for business success and to help them quickly get up to speed on what is required to accelerate their climate work, STICA is now offering a Kickstarting Climate Action webinar series. The series provides companies with an introduction to climate action as well as tips on how to start working with climate action. For companies who are considering joining STICA, the program also provides an opportunity to learn more about the initiative.

If you  are interested in finding out more about the webinar series,  please reach out to Michael Schragger at michael@sustainablefashionacademy.org.

Target Audiences

The webinar series is primarily aimed at medium and smaller size apparel brands and retailers who have not yet started their climate work. However, it is also relevant for companies who have relatively advanced climate work and now want to educate additional members in their organization regarding climate action basics. It will also be valuable for producers and suppliers to brands and retailers. The series is relevant for companies in a range of apparel and textile segments – everyday fashion, luxury, outdoor, sport, workwear, laundry services – and other actors who purchase, sell or produce textiles, including those supporting the public sector and municipalities. The focus is mainly on clothing and textiles, as opposed to hard goods.
