Moira Forbes urges action over ‘devastating’ displacement of women due to climate change

Speaking at COP28’s Future Mobility Hub, Forbes’ Executive VP Moira Forbes urged action on the ‘devastating’ disproportionate displacement of women due to climate change.

Current Forbes’ Executive Vice President and Publisher of ForbesWomen, Moira Forbes, was representing four generations of publishers at COP28’s Future Mobility Hub in Dubai, UAE this week – where she highlighted the impact climate change was having on women across the world.

She said: “Across a variety of different issues and crises around the world, women continue to be disproportionately impacted, whether it be issues of climate violence or types of displacement.”

Forbes also highlighted the significance of examining the corridors and structures of power to discern the decision-makers and those individuals at the forefront. She emphasized the need to identify leaders who may not be guiding with the most expansive and innovative minds in today’s approach to leadership.

She continued:

“I think one of the most important things to drive change, whatever it may be, is to have that diversity of thought, to have more expansive voices within these conversations and at the table. Because when you have that thinking and that appreciation of diversity of thought, that’s when you create sustainable solutions. And until that happens, you’ll continue to see these trends in devastating ways.”

COP28 has so far made international headlines following Dr. Sultan al Jaber’s comments on cutting fossil fuels – a topic Forbes held a diplomatic stance on:

“What’s helpful is that there is this really open and rigorous debate in terms of what are the types of goals that we should have. Any time you need to drive change in the urgent way that we need, to run some of these solutions or you have to ensure is that you meet these people where they are and how do you bring together solutions where all voices are heard, but also solutions that could be implemented in a realistic and sustainable way. When you have these types of conversations, it’s really important because it offers this exchange of ideas and a debate, and that is really healthy in terms of being able to tackle these global issues.”

The Future Mobility Hub encourages learning, the facilitating and exchange of ideas, and promotion of partnerships among professionals from different industries, with the aim of shaping the future of transportation and mobility in a sustainable and innovative way.

VeroWear LLC Launches Innovative Sportswear Brand With a Mission to Transform Fashion, Health, and Sustainability

New activewear line uses recycled nylon to create eco-friendly fabric with ergonomic properties

VeroWear LLC

TIVERTON, R.I., December 8, 2023 (

VeroWear LLC announces the launch of a sportswear brand dedicated to redefining fashion as a force for good, creating products that are not only innovative but also resonate with the values of eco-conscious consumers.

VeroWear LLC’s mission is to provide women with technologically advanced, stylistic sportswear featuring unique ergonomic characteristics and manufacturing practices that reduce the environmental pollution created by standard textile production. A significant portion of VeroWear’s profits will support charities focused on improving the planet and human health.

The heart of VeroWear’s innovation lies in its fabric. The brand exclusively utilizes Econyl®, a luxurious material woven from regenerated nylon derived from environmental sources such as ocean and aquaculture fish nets and landfills. The harvested nylon is dissolved, carefully cleaned, scientifically reconstructed, and spun into virgin soft thread, which is then woven and colored using environmentally friendly procedures. The resulting fabric is often compared to silk due to its soft, lustrous texture and gentle stretch. Econyl is created in Italy by Aquafil using a patented process that minimizes energy consumption; its production not only repurposes environmental waste but also significantly reduces the carbon footprint associated with traditional textile manufacturing, one of the world’s largest sources of CO2 emissions.

VeroWear is more than an eco-friendly activewear option. The design and development of the products are rooted in serious ergonomics and kinesiology. Econyl, though lightweight, possesses distinct compression properties that are designed to reduce fatigue and improve circulation, making VeroWear an ideal choice for active women of all ages and lifestyles, from serious athletes to on-the-go moms.

The VeroWear collection is designed by Italian co-founder Gianluca Zacchia, whose lifelong expertise and creativity in artistic design are instrumental in bringing to life the vision of VeroWear’s President and co-founder, Dr. Anthony H. Cincotta, and his daughter Emma Concetta Cincotta, Director of Marketing & Development. The Cincottas’ joint health and fashion consciousness, entrepreneurial talent and environmental passion are fueled by Zacchia’s designs, which infuse VeroWear products with the vibrant colors and energy of life, nature, and well-being.

The brand marked its U.S. launch with a new website that offers shoppers an immersive experience featuring fresh, energizing images and motivational messages. aspires to empower women to feel confident, be healthy, and make a societal difference through their clothing. “VeroWear recognizes the importance of promoting positive body health and the role women play as catalysts of change,” said Dr. Cincotta, CEO. “We believe that fashion should be beautiful, sustainable, and ethically motivated.”

VeroWear USA is located at 1334 Main Road, Tiverton, RI 02878. For more information, visit their website at or call (781) 697-5133.
