A year on from the launch of the IFM-Kering Sustainability Chair, luxury group Kering has announced that 300 students have already taken part, reports Leatherbiz.
Kering partnered with the Institut Français de la Mode (IFM) to establish the position in November 2019, saying the chair would seek to incorporate all aspects of sustainability and corporate social responsibility into research and teaching in the fashion industry.
It said the 300 students that engaged in year one had undergone “an intensive course on sustainability”. And now a cohort of 35 students will take this experience forward and start work to earn a new specialised certificate in fashion sustainability.
