“One Million Hectares for the Planet: The Launch of the Regenerative Fund for Nature”
January 28 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am MST
Fashion is fundamentally reliant on agriculture. Yet over the past 100 years, agriculture has had a devastating toll on natural ecosystems, and is currently one of the world’s major drivers of biodiversity loss. Motivated to reframe fashion’s relationship with nature by accelerating the transition towards more sustainable raw material production, Kering and Conservation International are delighted to launch the Regenerative Fund for Nature. By providing financing and technical support for those working at the forefront of raw material production, the Fund aims to transition one million hectares of existing farms and rangelands into regenerative farming practices over the next five years. Please join us for this launch event, hosted in partnership with Textile Exchange.
Textile Exchange’s La Rhea Pepper and Claire Bergkamp will be part of this panel along with Marie-Claire Daveu, Kering (Chief Sustainability Officer & Head of International Institutional Affairs) and other representatives from Kering and Conservational International.
