Kering, partner of the changeNOW summit 2018
Flashback to two days at the heart of innovation and sustainability
Kering supported changeNOW second edition, the international summit for change, that took place on September 28th and 29th at Station F, Paris.
During two days, over 4000 participants came to hear about more than 500 innovations addressing the world’s most important environmental and societal issues.
A side-event dedicated to Sustainable Fashion also showcased 20 projects revolutionizing the industry.
Invited on the main stage of the Summit, Marie-Claire Daveu, Chief sustainability officer and head of international institutional affairs at Kering, gave a speech on Luxury and innovation. “In order to meet our ambitious 2025 sustainability targets, we have to keep reinventing ourselves and stimulating disruptive innovation at each step of the value chain. At the crossroad between innovation and sustainability, changeNOW appeared to be a unique platform to tackle the 21st-century’s global issues and to identify their solutions.” she commented, before sharing with the audience some of the Group sustainable initiatives.
