by FOUR PAWS International Consumers are increasingly becoming concerned about the treatment of animals who produce their clothing. Progressive textile brands are responding by developing animal welfare policies, statements and guidelines regarding their use of animal derived materials. But what constitutes a good animal welfare policy? What are the animal welfare goals fashion companies should be aiming for? And what are the essential building blocks, and tools needed to make policy objectives a reality and welfare claims substantiated? In this webinar FOUR PAWS will inform participants about developing a good vision and set of goals regarding the use of animals in fashion and how to translate this into meaningful policy. A champion brand will tell us about their journey to source more animal-friendly materials, and speakers will share tools and best practices to implement the policy and make an impact.
