Fashion (including apparel and footwear) and textiles industry is often considered to be the second-most polluting industry on the planet, next to oil and gas. According to a recent research, the apparel and footwear industries together account for 8% of the global carbon emissions, greater than all international airline flights and maritime shipping trips combined.
Sustainability is not just a trend, it is a much-needed shift in values for both consumers and business. Driven by increasingly stringent regulatory compliance requirements as well as rising expectations of various stakeholders, the world's leading corporate brands are stepping up to play a major role in making the industry genuinely sustainable.
Join us on 6 December 2019 for the seminar especially for the fashion and textiles industry, in which we will cover the following topics:
· Global sustainability landscape of the fashion industry
· Overview of ESG performance of listed companies in the fashion and textiles industry
· Challenges in adopting the new amendments of the HKEX ESG Reporting Guide
· How listed companies can better fulfill these new requirements
This is an excellent opportunity to meet with the market leaders and see how the fashion industry can achieve sustainability.
Should you have any questions, please contact Ms. Yan Wong from the Business Reporting and Sustainability team of KPMG.
We look forward to your participation.
