Fashion luxury group Kering visited business school HEC Paris earlier this week to launch its new sustainable innovation challenge, which entails teaching students about Kering’s vision of sustainability.

The Kering programme at HEC Paris is two weeks long. Students will receive sustainability coaching and will be given the opportunity to immerse themselves in the topics of circularity and traceability in the supply chain through a series of in-depth lectures.

As part of the two-week programme, HEC students have to present a fashion industry case study, making use of their digital knowledge.

The sustainable innovation challenge forms a part of The Kering Group’s sustainability strategy, through which the company wants to encourage young people around the world to integrate sustainability into their practice.
