Amsterdam May 2015

The Sustainable Apparel Coalition hosted its inaugural European membership meeting in Amsterdam on May 19-20, 2015.

During these two days, the focus was on opportunities and challenges that the Coalition’s European members encounter. Attendees were also updated with the latest Higg Index development activities. Invitations to the meeting went beyond Coalition members: select external guests were also welcomed, including representatives of the European Commission and the Dutch government, GIZ (German Development agency) and organizations interested in learning more about the SAC.

Participants were very excited by the opportunity to interact with other attendees during the plenary and break-out sessions on areas such as adoption strategy, European policy developments, consumer communication and social convergence. Fruitful feedbacks and great ideas were gathered regarding the Coalition’s work roadmap in the region, helping to ensure that the tools are in place to make the Coalition’s projects meaningful successes in Europe.
