Gallery: 36 Eco-Fashion Predictions for 2016

MARIE-CLAIRE DAVEU (CHIEF SUSTAINABILITY OFFICER AND HEAD OF INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTIONAL AFFAIRS, KERING)

This past year was pivotal with the agreement of an ambitious climate accord and the launch of the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals.

The milestones for a more sustainable world are set and the significance of private sector engagement has never been clearer.

In 2016, the world will be watching to see how we act and it's the time to launch coherent and powerful actions.

Recognition of the fact that the future success of business depends on integrating broader social and environmental goals is paramount.

I believe that a new business paradigm will start emerging that will include the following:

  1. A deeper understanding of how global business operates, particularly the flow of goods and materials across global supply chains and where change needs to happen.
  2. A push for "radical transparency," which will demand more accountability for and monitoring of environmental and social impacts using tools like Kering’s Environmental Profit and Loss Account.
  3. An enhanced awareness and increased traceability of the elements that go into our products, particularly where they are from and how they impact the world in positive and negative ways.
  4. A new openness of climate-smart and innovative solutions across supply chains including technological but also around agriculture and material production.
  5. New and entrepreneurial collaborations in our industry, and also across different sectors, to ensure we can deliver on solutions and actions with multiple benefits to companies and to society.

In 2016, it is my hope that we will all embark on a new era of innovative "eco-solutions" with many exciting and powerful outcomes for all of us.
