Spreading Sustainability

Saturday 7 September 2019
10.30 AM
Tiziano Room Hall 7.1


At Vicenzaoro September 2019, the topic of VISIO.NEXT will be Spreading Sustainability: divulging the culture of sustainability, communicating the importance and looking at the best and most effective practices for embarking on an entrepreneurial course heading in this direction.

From the problems linked to stone and mineral supplies, to the rise in demand for sustainable raw materials, from the need to be informed about the new codes soon to be enforced for companies, to describing how brand and media storytelling has evolved in terms of communicating with the consumer, as well as a final practical reflection on the risks, costs and benefits for companies that choose the sustainability road.

Dealing with these topics will be experts from the world of fashion, an industry of reference for the way in which it already started thinking about sustainability a good while ago, international journalists and influencers, government representatives and leading companies in the jewellery sector, which are already developing Corporate Social Responsibility projects.

Moderator Fabio Tamburini, Director of Il Sole 24 Ore
