IAC, Hanna Holding Second Webinar in ‘Boldly Building’ Series
Scheduled for Feb. 23, it will focus on how major players in the jewelry industry are working toward net zero.
Kirsten Hund, head of carbon neutrality at De Beers, Richemont’s Director of Corporate Social responsibility Matthew Kilgarriff, and François-Xavier Morvan, the sustainability performance senior manager at Kering, will be the featured guests for “The Jewelry Industry: Perspectives on the Journey to Net Zero.”
(Net zero refers to having a balance between the amount of greenhouse gases a company adds to the atmosphere and the amount it takes away.)
They join hosts Mark Hanna, chief marketing officer at Richline Group, and Initiatives in Art and Culture President Lisa Koenigsberg to discuss how their companies have pursued the journey to measure and work toward net zero.
The session is scheduled for Feb. 23 at 12:30 p.m. Eastern.

The upcoming webinar on net zero is the second in a collaborative series between Hanna and IAC called “Boldly Building the Future.”
The series focuses on the climate crisis and the actions companies in the jewelry industry are taking to lessen their impact on the environment, actions many believe are no longer optional.
“Informed practices, goals and measurements for climate management are now mandatory for our industry and our future consumers,” Hanna said in a press release.
The first talk in the series, “Decade of Action: Climate and the Precious Metals Industry,” was held in December and can be viewed on Facebook.
