About Linking Threads

My name is Mariella Noto and I founded Linking Threads in 2016. I offer consulting services in the corporate responsibility and sustainability domain. Having more than ten years of retail and textile industry experience, including fieldwork in various production countries in Europe and Asia, I offer expertise, skill and a broad relevant network to help your company stay on course. My practical and theoretical abilities guarantees pragmatic and realistic business solutions that support you and the people you work with while transforming your organization into a sustainable, social and environmental friendly one.

With a background in both business economics and social sciences, I am able to link corporate interests with social and environmental issues in a way that will benefit business clients as well other stakeholders within the apparel value chain. I enjoy bringing companies, people, cultures and industry parties together.


The Apparel Industry is complex and always changing, with a variety of stakeholders involved in both internal and external decision making. I help create transparancy, guiding you through the maze of the complex Corporate Responsibility domain. By advising and inspiring companies in developing a solid strategy I assist them with implementing a management system to convert strategy into action.
