The Sustainability Council at FIT hosts a 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. In recent years, breakout sessions have included topics such as farm-to-fashion, textile development, sustainable fashion supply chain, mindfulness in design, and packaging materials and recycling. The wide-ranging program features keynote speakers, panels, and projects that delve into pressing issues and exciting developments in the industry.

This year’s Sustainable Business and Design Conference theme is Innovating for the Future. It offers branding and speaking opportunities, as well as brand logo placement on conference marketing collateral.
