Jonathan Cocker co-presented and spoke at the breakout session “Sustainability: What’s Driving the Agenda and How Can Your Business Evolve to Meet and Stay Ahead of Demand?” alongside Christine Constantine, Director of Corporate Social Responsibility (Baker McKenzie), Jeremy Schwartz, Ex CEO (The Body Shop), Julia Dickenson, Senior Associate (Baker McKenzie), Emily Tilden-Smith, Associate (Baker McKenzie), and Francesca Richmond, Partner, Dispute Resolution (Baker McKenzie), during the Luxury Law Summit which took place at the Ham Yard Hotel in London, England on May 15th, 2018. From the Green Carpet Fashion Awards to Stella McCartney’s recent calls for an overhaul on waste in the fashion industry, sustainability is increasingly becoming a focus for luxury and fashion businesses.
The roundtable addressed the following questions:
- What is driving the agenda? We will look at the changing expectations of consumers, social media pressures and legal reform on sustainability reporting.
- How can innovation help businesses to meet these demands? From supply chain transparency to new materials, what tools are businesses using to comply with their obligations?
- How do you evolve your business and build a sustainable brand? How can businesses implement sustainable development goals and protect and promote their investment in business practices while still growing?
