Towards a Greener Future
Sustainibility should be a key element in every company, inclunding the ones who are part of fashion business in Ticino. “How to develop a sustainable strategy – and how to take advantage of it” was the topic of an event organized by the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland on December 14, 2015, in the headquarters of Hugo Boss Ticino SA in Coldrerio.
Supported by Ticinomoda and the group of work Fashion and Luxury Supply Chain (Verein Netzwerk Logistik, VNL), the aim of this conference was to make all societies aware of how important is developing such a strategy, trying to figure out what could be its impact on the company itself. Hugo Boss Ticino SA and VF International (which opened a few years ago its futuristic headquarters in Stabio) introduced their case stories, demonstrating that it is possible to do it. Innovative solutions are however necessary, and to develop them a stronger partnership between companies, associations and scientific research is obviously required.
This is one of the many reasons that explain why Ticinomoda, the association which gathers the more important fashion societies in our Canton, is so essential: helping the companies to develop their networks, it represents the shortest way to build a new idea of business and – consequently – a better future.Mattia Bertoldi
