The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) provided information about responsible cotton production, followed by a detailed look at Levi Strauss & Co.'s approach to sustainability through product lifecycle assessment (LCA). LCAs provide detailed information on the environmental impacts of a product.
In this webinar, Natalie Hubbard, Senior Sustainability Specialist at Levi Strauss & Co., and Daren Abney, Membership Engagement Manager at BCI, tell you about Levi's LCA, what it shows about the profile of a pair of jeans from cotton cultivation to consumer use, and what Levi's is doing to reduce its impact - plus, learn more about BCI, too.
