The Sustainability Council at FIT hosts our annual Sustainable Business and Design Conference each spring. The event provides a platform for collaboration and discussion throughout the creative industries, highlighting advances in sustainable design and thought leadership. Environmental and social challenges and potential solutions are explored through innovative student projects, cross-institutional research, and industry partnerships.

This year’s theme, “Ideas at Work,” will focus on the innovation that has paved the way for real change in the fashion and related industries. That includes sustainable materials, products, and services that are just now hitting the market—and making a difference. You’ll hear from global experts about advances in plant-based leather, green chemistry, responsible sourcing, and conscious design, among many other innovations.
