About the Patagonia Eco Innovation Case Competition 2016:
On Earth Day, April 22nd, 2016 graduate student teams from leading business schools across United States will come together at the Haas School of Business to compete in the development of potential solutions to a real and urgent problem faced by Patagonia: the toxicity of chemicals treatments that keep people dry while wearing outdoor gear.
This is the final round of a first-of-its-kind case competition, which invited students from interdisciplinary backgrounds to help develop a less toxic alternative to Patagonia’s current fluorocarbon-based waterproofing treatments that maintains the company’s standards for long-lasting performance – a requirement critical for keeping gear out of landfills and reducing significant damage to the planet associated with making more stuff over time.
