Amina Razvi is the executive director of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC). Under her leadership, the SAC’s 250+ members develop the Higg Index, a suite of tools that measure environmental and social impacts in the apparel, footwear, and textile industry. Previously, Razvi was the vice president of membership at the SAC. Prior to joining the SAC, she led environmental initiatives on Gap Inc.’s global sustainability team.
The last several years have seen the formation of many industry, cross-industry, and multi-stakeholder collaborations dedicated to solving big global challenges, such as the Sustainable Apparel Coalition, Empower@Work, and BSR’s own Future of Fuels. In a world disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, how are collaborations helping participants to drive progress on near-term and long-term goals? What happens when partners in the vison for long-term system change are side-tracked by immediate disruption and downturn? This panel will share insights on challenges that multi-stakeholder initiatives and companies are currently facing, and discuss solutions that can make collaborations a source of resilience and busines continuity even during a time of disruption.
