Stern MBA Class Creates Sustainable Fashion Playbook with CFDA

The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) launched the “CFDA KPI Design Kit: A Sustainable Strategies Playbook for Measurable Change” in collaboration with a Stern MBA student team from the Sustainability for Competitive Advantage course taught by Clinical Professor of Business & Society Tensie Whelan. Led by Whelan (Director) and Sophie Rifkin (Senior Associate Director) of the Stern Center for Sustainable Business, the students worked to address key challenges to sustainable fashion in areas ranging from sales to supply chain.
