A year since its launch, Kering announced that 300 students have taken part in the introductory programme, which it described as an “intensive course on sustainability”.

Now, a cohort of 35 students will take this experience further with a new specialised certificate in fashion sustainability. The group’s chief sustainability officer, Marie-Claire Daveu said that Kering experts would support the new certificate course, which has been designed to provide master’s students with knowledge and skills across areas that she described as “integral to advancing sustainability in our industry”. 

She wished the 35 students luck and added: “I believe that there is nothing more important than providing the framework to educate and inspire the next generation to understand the complexities of our world today and to navigate the future sustainably.
