Join the conversation between Sasha Bezuhanova and Boryana Uzunova – co-founder of Impakt_ID, on February 25 at 6 PM EET.
Did you know that the fashion industry has a disastrous impact on the environment?
In fact, it is the second-largest polluter in the world, just after the oil industry. The fashion industry is responsible for 10 % of annual global carbon emissions, more than all international flights and maritime shipping combined. At this pace, the fashion industry’s greenhouse gas emissions will surge more than 50 % by 2030.
And the environmental damage is increasing as the industry grows.
But there is always a solution! Join us on February 25 at 6 PM EET for the new edition of BCWT special leadership format SHEleader in a SHEll. Vol 9 “The Creation of Sustainable Fashion” will meet you with Boryana Uzunova – co-founder of Impakt_ID and Kool and Konscious – works between the fields of ecology and technology to mitigate this negative impact through facilitating its transition towards a more transparent and accountable model.
After studying at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and working on a technology aiming to mitigate the impact of mass fashion production through enabling brands to produce on-demand perfect-fit appeal, Boryana teams up with visionary engineers working in the field.
She has launched a 360 platform for sustainable and ethical fashion – Kool and Konscious, and another company that specializes in the assessment and mitigation of the environmental footprint on product level – Imakt_ID.
One of the 30 under 30 most talented entrepreneurs by Forbes for 2019 sits in a conversation with Sasha Bezuhanova, founder of the Bulgarian Center of Women and Technology, to tell us more about the challenges of the industry and the solutions for a more sustainable and environmentally friendly economy.
