Sustainable Apparel Coalition
2019 Global Member Meeting

Barcelona, June 24-27

>> Register Here <<

The Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC) invites you to the 2019 Global Member Meeting on June 24-27 at the Hotel Pullman Barcelona Skipper. 

The theme of this year’s meeting is: Collaboration at Scale: Addressing challenges together to improve sustainability impacts across the industry. After years of conceptualization, development, and consensus building the Coalition can turn its attention to transforming the industry and lowering impacts through implementing the tools at scale. 

Each annual membership meeting is a milestone in which members, the Board, and SAC staff can reflect on the progress of the Coalition to achieve its mission. Last year’s meeting emphasized how the technological platform for the Higg Index tools would be an accelerator of adoption. This year’s meeting begins the Coalition’s focus on a new phase: implementation.

The programmatic opportunity of the meeting is to hear from a wide range of individuals and get a sense of what they think is important, where the opportunities lie, and what the potential challenges and opportunities are that need to be addressed. As the spinout is being completed and SAC has an opportunity to redefine the value of the Coalition and how staff can contribute to that value, the meeting is a way to inform strategic planning, 2020 program objectives, and prioritization of resources. 

To kick off the meeting week, please join us for an SAC Member Orientation and evening welcome reception on Tuesday, June 25 at the Pullman Barcelona Skipper; followed by a closing dinner reception on Thursday, June 27 at L'Aquarium Barcelona.

This annual meeting is open to SAC members only and invited guests only. Attendance is limited to 1 FREE attendee per organization. Additional attendees will be charged a fee of $2,300 USD starting on May 18, 2019. Early bird registration ($1,800 USD) ended on May 17, 2019. 

For general questions about the meeting week, please contact Dani at [email protected].
