Sustainability is a key issue for all of us, and luxury brands should take a leadership position when it comes to environmental and social impact, not least because luxury businesses are hard-wired for the long-term. On 13th June, Walpole is again working with the French Chamber of Commerce on the London Luxury Think Tank; ‘What Makes Luxury Sustainable’ will be a thought-provoking day of debate, panel discussions and presentations.
In a world where consumption patterns are changing, owning becomes second to experiencing. Secure your tickets to the London Luxury Think Tank, and discover how economic trends such as co-ownership, renting and second-hand purchasing are shaping the luxury sector. Examine how brands are shifting behaviours by changing how they treat their waste and stock. Take a deeper look at sustainable client ownership and the positives for the planet due of the changes in consumer’s attitudes.
