Venice Sustainable Fashion Forum 2022

Temera, in addition to being Main Sponsor, will also be one of the prestigious brand speakers at the event


The Italian fashion industry will meet in Venice, the 27th and 28th of October, on the occasion of "Venice Sustainable Fashion Forum 2022," the first international summit dedicated to a sustainable future of the sector, to launch a shared plea among the main supply chain players to make this necessary ecological transition possible. Temera will be one of the prestigious brand speakers and Main Sponsor at the event, which will be held at the Giorgio Cini Foundation (Isola di San Giorgio): a two-day event to understand the present and future of a key sector of the Italian economy, through an articulated program of debates, trend analysis, data, market behavior and best practices. Promoters of the initiative are Confindustria Venezia, Area Metropolitana di Venezia e Rovigo and The European House - Ambrosetti, with the patronage of Assocalzaturifici, which will sign in particular the first day, titled "Just Fashion Transition," Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana and Sistema Moda Italia (SMI), which will curate the one on October 28, titled "The Values of Fashion."   

The main objective of the Forum, which will be attended by institutions, brands, supply chain professionals, industry and business representatives, and NGOs, is to accelerate a sustainable transition path in a sector that suffers from a lack of data and standardized measurement tools.  

The presentation press conference was held on Thursday, September 15, at The Human Safety Net House at the Procuratie Vecchie, St. Mark's Square in Venice. Speakers, after a greeting by Roberto Luongo, ICE Director:  

Vincenzo Marinese, President of Confindustria Venezia: "We strongly wanted to bring this international forum on sustainability in the fashion supply chain to Venice. The Lagoon City, after all, can count on a long history of meeting and exchange of goods, ideas, and experiences."  

Flavio Sciuccati, Senior Partner at The European House-Ambrosetti: "The Fashion sector, which for the past 70 years has been one of the driving sectors of fundamental importance for the economy and development of our country worldwide, today is entering a new phase of crucial importance and complexity: the chase to achieve the global goals of Sustainability and Social Responsibility that the sector has often left in the background and that instead, today, absolutely must be put at the forefront of the agenda of all the operators in the sector."  

Sergio Tamborini, President of Sistema Moda Italia: "The sustainable transition undertaken by the fashion system in recent years is part of a new scenario that, aggravated by the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, relaunches the debate on the issue of the country's energy independence. If the actions initiated by companies concern, to date, mainly the reduction of consumption, the textile and fashion supply chain cannot, however, renounce finding, at the institutional and production level, a shared framework on working methods: I am referring to the issues of measurability of results, extended producer responsibility and ecodesign.  

Carlo Capasa, President of the National Chamber for Italian Fashion, said, "The Venice Sustainable Fashion Forum wants to be an opportunity to bring together all system operators, analyze the current state of our Industry, bring examples of virtuous realities and define together the challenges ahead and the goals we want to achieve. As the National Chamber for Italian Fashion we will organize the second day of work together with Sistema Moda Italia, making available to the Industry our expertise derived from more than 10 years of work on the implementation of sustainable practices adopted by our Associates, as well as the protocols, guidelines and Working Tables, developed together with international realities such as the United Nations Ethical Fashion Initiative and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. Italian fashion is a unique example of strategic and tactical excellence in sustainability, today and in the future."
