Wool's Future Context

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are setting the agenda for brands and retailers in areas of climate action, equality and the environment.

These agendas influence consumer and sourcing decisions.

The Wool Connect Conference will explore this context means for wool. 

Animal & Planet Welfare

Animal and Land Welfare are key topics within the wool industry. This session will take a more practical hands-on approach and openly debate.

International retailers will share how the consumer market views animal welfare and identify clear market signals about the topic.

These insights will be linked to practical solutions that showcase how wool growers and the wool industry supply chain can meet the demand for animal & environment welfare-friendly wool.

Between Proof & Stories

Agriculture and retail relevant data technology and digitalisation are developing at the speed of light. This opens up new opportunities as well as demands in the form of transparency and traceability for the wool supply chain.

Against the backdrop of dry data, the human desire for storytelling is as strong as ever.

In this session, wool manufacturers, influencers, and brands will share how their business has shifted from selling wool products to selling wool stories backed up with data.
