The GOOD In TOWN 2021-11-12

The sustainability report in a nutshell

Although being compulsory only for certain business typologies, sustainability reporting is becoming more and more widespread among companies as a means to inform their stakeholders about their environmental impact and CSR activities. Indeed, a sustainability implementation report allows consumers to learn more about brands and companies’ behaviours, communicating a business’ transparency, honesty, and responsibility. Find out what sustainability reporting is and why is it important for any kind of company.

Fashion and sustainability: awareness and challenges among Italian fashion businesses

The pandemic and the alarming climate change triggered the re-evaluation of companies’ priorities, leaving increasing space for sustainability. This Report focuses on fashion industry challenges with regards to the sustainability transition process, aiming at helping companies – which have already reached a considerable level of awareness – to understand how to preserve their competitiveness.

We are together on a mission to bridge the scattered space of climate innovation through tech and innovation.

We are a non-profit company, a network of professionals - entrepreneurs, investors, venture builders, designers and policy makers - coming from many different industries with global mindset.

By building a digital database of emerging solutions, our role is bridge and match the most relevant connections.

In the Sandbox program we support startups with B2B solutions in climate sustainability and innovation (including physical and digital products and services). We will be able to help startups from prototype to production stage. If you are already selling your product/service, more than welcomed!

Each startup is asked to fill in a form. These data will be used internally to create a profile of the offer, which will constitute the basis for the matchmaking.

For selected startups we are 100% free. We will charge only when a match has been concluded. We will charge a 5% fee on investments and grants received thanks to the program, and a 10% fee on the contracts closed with clients matched through the program.

We promote and support each member in our network in several fashion: by supporting the communication of their projects and expertise though our communication engine; by involving them in new projects where their competence is key; by offering access to our courses on circular economy, climate innovation, sustainable finance, etc.. and with early invitation to the Sandbox Platform Beta (which will be launched on March 2022). Being in the ecosystem makes you closer to a community of people dedicated to the same cause, but on different paths, meaning you can always enrich yourself learning from peers. Moreover, the matchmaking process will make it easier for your projects to reach the right partners/clients.
