The concept of sustainability is gaining ground in our society. For a great many reasons, which include consumers growing more responsible, laws getting stricter and waning resources becoming more expensive, sustainable development is rising as one of the key factors for companies to survive and gain a competitive advantage over their competition in the near future.

In the fashion world, sustainability is a complex issue as it affects every stage of the product’s life cycle: design, material procurement, production, logistics, use and end of life.

To ensure sustainability is successfully implemented in our companies, the technical and specific know‑how it requires must also come with a strategic vision and a new understanding of the fashion business.

Sustainable fashion is such a broad concept that it requires in-depth training, which is now available in classroom format for the first time in Spain thanks to this specialisation course.
