Fashion our Future Podcast: The impact of textile production and processing on the environment

Fashion Our Future is a podcast by Kering that explores the solutions needed to make the fashion and luxury industry more sustainable and circular. Over the course of five episodes, creative, passionate, and committed industry insiders will discuss and demystify the sustainable practices and groundbreaking solutions that are influencing and changing the luxury fashion industry.

Raw materials are used to produce the final textile products that become the clothes we wear and if the goal is to make luxury more sustainable we need to get to the nitty-gritty of how the production and processing of raw materials impact the environment.

In this episode, Dr. Helen Crowley, Pollination Managing Director and former Head of Sustainable Sourcing and Nature Initiatives at Kering, and M Sanjayan, Chief Executive Officer of Conservation International discuss the different materials used in the industry, their effect on the environment, and why a change in agricultural practices is key to protecting biodiversity in the future.
