Every year, BoF benchmarks fashion’s progress toward a series of critical sustainability goals, designed to align the industry with global ambitions to curb climate change and establish more responsible business practices by 2030.

With just eight years to go, time is running out. But progress among the industry’s frontrunners is only incremental and outweighed by wider inaction, The BoF Sustainability Index 2022 finds. Tackling this challenge requires nothing short of industry transformation. You can now watch the on-demand viewing of the open access BoF LIVE: A Crash Course on The BoF Sustainability Index 2022 where BoF’s founder and editor-in-chief Imran Amed unpacks the issues with the report’s authors Diana Lee and Sarah Kent.

Join us for our three-part sustainability masterclass series designed to unpack the big issues affecting supply chains, financing change and credible communication strategies; whilst providing actionable solutions. This series is designed for fashion founders, designers and decision-makers who want to understand the key levers for change and plan for action. Access to the masterclasses is exclusive to BoF Professional All-Access members and will be held on June 22, June 29 and July 6 at 16:00 BST/ 11:00 EDT. Register now.

If you are unable to join live, full sessions will be available to watch-on-demand.
