Wednesday 08th November 2017

13:45 - 14:45 CET

Presentation Area, Hall 7, 2nd Floor

Together with his guests, Marco Ricchetti will talk about successful stories of companies that adopted a new thinking. Materials are back in the spotlight, as a pillar of the sustainability revolution, and still the basis for designers creativity. While “the beautiful before the good” remains fashion business main driver, on the other hand, the resources exhaustion and release of harmful chemicals calls for a change of perspective here and now. Solutions are however at hand, the successful practices presented in the conference will tell us about feasible directions.

Be inspired by the vision of a sustainability and circular economy.

Lara Delle, Responsible for Materials Ecology &  Member of the CSR Team, Vaude
