Eileen Fisher Sustainable Materials & Transparency Manager | New York

ACFC 2019 Speaker

As a B Corp, sustainability is deeply woven into Eileen Fisher’s business practices and design philosophy.

Megan Meiklejohn is the Manager of Sustainable Materials and Transparency at EILEEN FISHER, Inc., a New York based women’s clothing brand.

With a degree from Pennsylvania State University in Environmental Resource Management, Megan began her career as a sustainability consultant to a diverse number of clients and projects; identifying energy, waste, and water saving opportunities, verifying product claims, and facilitating certification to various sustainability standards.

 

“The more I read about the brand, the more I wanted to support their efforts of using natural fibers, supporting ethical production, and creating quality clothes in a timeless design that didn’t feel trendy.”

 

Megan joined EILEEN FISHER in 2014 with a focus on Supply Chain Transparency. Understanding that transparency is foundational to sourcing sustainable fibers and materials, Megan focuses on identifying and engaging with raw material suppliers who are creating a beneficial impact on the environment through organic, holistic, and regenerative practices. In the past few years, EILEEN FISHER has been able to nominate specific farmers and fiber networks, creating completely traceable supply chains for select organic cotton and regenerative wool qualities.

Megan is an advocate for using sustainably produced natural fibers to drawdown carbon and fight climate change.

 

“EILEEN FISHER was on my radar, a company I wanted to work for; it’s a progressive company that really “gets it” & the clothes are beautiful!”
