Coming Fall 2014

The World Ethical Apparel Roundtable – WEAR – is a two-day conference focused on sustainability in the fashion industry. The first conference of its kind in Canada, WEAR will bring together apparel brands and retailers, sustainability experts, NGOs and academia to share best practices, build relationships and tackle the social and environmental challenges facing the industry today.

Keynote speakers, panel discussions and breakout sessions will explore 4 themes:

  • Profitability: The Business Case for Sustainability
  • Social: Make Fair, Buy Fair
  • Environmental: Resizing Fashion’s Footprint
  • Engagement: Transparency, Traceability & Talk

In order to reach as many people as possible who are responsible implementing sustainable initiatives, our breakouts will be streamed to Supply Chain Managers, Designers and Marketing executives. Delegates can self select which breakout to attend, based on their role in the organization.

Who Should Attend? Apparel industry organizations, academia, government officials, design directors, independent designers, marketing and public relations executives, retailers, suppliers, sustainability and CSR managers, operations managers and brand managers.
