We have recently heard about virtual fashion marketed for online-only wear, addressing the current fast fashion industry issues—massive production and waste. Fashion has many sides relating to sustainability, from raw material selection to production, transportation, and end-of-life disposable. Clothing is part of people's daily lives. Virtual fashion may fulfil our fantasies. Still, clothes are made to keep us warm and protected and to show our identity. How could we sustain the fashion industry in the physical world while preserving our planet and our people from destroying it? If we start from scratch, eco-raw materials are only one side of the coin. The holistic idea concerns the current trending topic: ESG (Environment, Social, and Governance). In this webinar, we are honoured to have Mr Paul Chan, the Vice President of the Hong Kong Apparel Society, leading us with his inspiration as an industry leader. A discussion about Future-Fit Business, how to manage carbon emission, and energy consumption data from the fashion industry via cost-effective tools, a framework to initiate ESG in your company and prevent the criticism from reputation crisis (greenwashing), will be followed.

近年大家聽說了虛擬服裝。虛擬服裝是種虛擬世界衣服產品,供買家在網路世界穿著。在意義上,它可解決快時尚大量生產所帶來的浪費問題。事實上,由挑選原材料、生產過程、運輸、以至產品廢棄,服裝與可持續發展息息相關。「衣」是人們生活的一部份。虛擬服裝滿足人的期望。然而,衣服確實用來保護人的身體,亦可表現個性。怎麼可以延續真實世界的服裝行業、同時保護環境和社會免受破壞?從源頭開始,開發環保製衣原料只是一方面的解決方法。目前的熱門話題—ESG (環境、社會、企業管治)則從整體來看問題。今次的座談會,很榮幸邀請到香港製衣同業協進會副會長陳偉彬先生講述業界領導應了解的業界趨勢。稍後將討論什麼是Future-fit business,以及怎樣用具有成本效益的工具來管理良好的 ESG 數據來達到浄零排放。亦是防止企業「漂綠」—打著環保旗號的宣傳手法—的ESG框架。
