The course programme will be based on six key modules that will range from theoretical aspects to real examples of issues that luxury brands face, including sourcing raw material, animal welfare and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The course will be made up of films, podcasts, activities and discussions and participation is online. Explaining the partnership, Kering’s Marie-Claire Daveu said: “There are many challenges in the industry, but in luxury we have a specific responsibility because we are influencing trends. People need to realise that sustainability is an opportunity, not a constraint. It’s a chance to be optimisitc, because you can make wonderful products while taking care of people and the planet. The solution does exist.”
