November 28th, 2 pm - event

Sustainable luxury refers to an item that lasts forever.  Yet, creating timeless items and generating value across supply networks is a challenging task. The fact remains that the earth is warming, bio-diversity is dwindling and supply chains are becoming tremendously complex. 

Sustainable Luxury Academy brings together opinion leaders to discuss how to use luxury as an instrument to enhance sustainability and how to drive change through collaboration and knowledge generation. Controversial materials, circular economy and traceability are the main topics that will be covered in the workshop. 

Collaboration is an antecedent for strategic sustainability management; therefore you are cordially invited to join our exclusive industrial think tank on November 28th, 2017 at Politecnico di Milano School of Management.
