This October, leaders in sustainability will gather at Textile Exchange’s annual Textile Sustainability Conference to share the kinds of progress, knowledge and best practices that will improve the apparel industry.
Taking place from October 4-7, 2016 in Hamburg, Germany, the conference will host more than 300 attendees the world over, representing all parts of the textile supply chain.
Brands and retailers, marketing and communications departments, supply and value chain staff, designers and non-profits will all be able to benefit from the conference.
“Anyone interested in textile sustainability can glean something from this event,” Textile Exchange, a global nonprofit aimed at accelerating sustainable practices in the textile supply chain, said in a statement.
Topics on the table will include Flexibility and Equivalence in Certification, Supply Chain Mapping 101, Pricing: Shining the Light on Market Mechanisms, and taking responsibility for animals in the value chain, to name a few.
Opportunities are also available to visit nearby manufacturing facilities.
“TE brings together a diverse group of people from different parts of the supply chain to build community through knowledge sharing at the conference,” Liesl Truscott, director of Europe and materials strategy at Textile Exchange, said. “It is a place where attendees can contribute through personal participation to proactively shape the future of the industry.”
