#SFF23 Takes Place April 21-22 in Portland, Oregon, USA

The Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC) has confirmed it will be collaborating with the Sustainable Fashion Forum (SFF23) as an official Event Partner. Taking place on April 21-22 in Portland, Oregon, SFF23 gathers like-minded industry leaders, scientists, educators, activists, c-suite executives, and leading brands to ask hard questions, share ideas, and find practical, action-based solutions that look to the future of fashion and sustainability.

As part of the partnership, SAC CEO Amina Razvi will hit the SFF MainStage for an exclusive fireside chat with Kestrel Jenkins, host and producer of the Conscious Chatter podcast series, about leadership in the era of accountability, the nuanced challenges of implementing sustainability across the fashion industry’s global supply chain, and actionable strategies to overcome these challenges. 

The partnership between SAC and the SFF is a powerful representation of the importance of collaboration and breaking down industry silos in the fashion industry. By working together, we’re excited to leverage our collective expertise, resources, and networks to drive positive change toward a more resilient, equitable, and sustainable fashion industry that benefits all stakeholders, from producers and consumers to the planet and its ecosystems.
