As Climate+ Impact Tools Senior Manager, Sam leads Textile Exchange’s Impact Tools development and engagement with industry stakeholders. At Textile Exchange, Climate+ is the goal of guiding the industry towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions from fiber and raw material production by 45% by 2030. The most important aspect of Climate+ is its interdisciplinary, interconnected approach. It does away with blanket solutions in favor of tailored, targeted strategies for three independent impact areas, soil, biodiversity and water.
