S04EP03 What is Regenerative Agriculture? Special Guest Hilmond Hui, Vice president of PFG Sustainably Influenced

    • Self Help

Today we are going to discuss the steps after sustainability. To be sustainable is great and it is something we strive for here on Sustainably Influenced, however the term “sustainability” itself is unclear.  What exactly are we trying to sustain? What can we do to rebuild after the mass devastation to the planet? We need to look forward and look towards the future.
Vice President of PFG and head of their BOMBYX Silk division, Hilmond Hui leads a team in defining consciously-made silk for the industry. A second generation of his family’s international business, Hilmond has been immersed in the world of garment manufacturing all his life. From this family legacy and experience, he’s witnessed the challenges with conscious production methods in silk. In Hilmond’s mind, things like quality and construction have always gone hand in hand with social responsibility and sustainability to create a garment. It starts from the source of the raw materials, leading him to create the world’s cleanest silk at the very same point of origin of this ancient textile.  Hilmond has always followed a path that marries ancient and modern thinking. Having studied Communications at Ryerson University in Toronto, Hilmond brings a global perspective to operations. Currently, Hilmond works closely with numerous departments including raw material development and sourcing, product and development, merchandising, corporate social responsibility and sustainability, production, and marketing.
