17 September 2019: The True Price of Fashion (De echte prijs van fashion)

The True Price of Fashion

Is a T-Shirt costing € 5,99 too cheap? Or a € 150 pair of jeans too expensive? In the production of fashion there are many hidden costs, such as underpayment of personnel, fossil energy and water consumption, poor working conditions or climate change due to greenhouse gases.

More and more companies, consumers, civil society organisations, and governments want to know and reduce these costs. For example, ABN AMRO and Impact Institute estimated that the true cost of jeans is on average € 33.

At the same time, the prevailing opinion is that we cannot pass the bill on to people with low incomes or farmers at the beginning of the fashion value chain.

A journey through the value chain can give us insight into the societal costs. Should the true price be made transparent so that businesses and consumers can make more sustainable choices? Or should the true price be paid? We will discuss this important issue with experts and the attendees!
