us-masterclass-inviteMADE-BY is kicking off a new series of seminars on key sustainability topics for US-based brands and retailers. Through these events, we hope to increase attendees knowledge of environmental and social sustainability considerations for the fashion industry. Each session will provide exclusive insights and solutions to support participants in implementing actions to decrease their impacts.

We envisage these seminars will be most appropriate for sustainability managers within brands and retailers, as well as for sourcing and production teams to make more informed decisions regarding sustainability risk and impact.
