The European Outdoor Group's Sustainability Working Group (SWG) is calling on all attendees at ispo to join them for breakfast and help save the world by working together in advancing a common sustainability platform.

Continuing the breakfast workshop series, started at OutDoor last summer, the SWG brings you a reason to get up on a cold winter's morning: the Sustainability Breakfast Open Meeting. This will be a fantastic opportunity for everyone to update themselves; the breakfast will give an overview of the SWG workplan and US driven Eco Index, a look at the resources available through the website, as well as provide two major industry speakers. This is an important and highly topical Sustainability Workshop where speakers will cover carbon footprinting, organic fibres, materials and business resources.

The Workshop will take place from 8.00am on the Monday morning of ispo, the 8th February, in Room Turmblick in Restaurant Am Turm. The Workshop will offer an opportunity for the industry to get involved, hear the latest developments, and the SWG are also inviting key industry professionals along to ensure that the event is of benefit to all in the industry. Dr Klaus Radunsky, co-convenor ISO 14067, and head of Unit of the Emission Trading Registry Department of the Umweltbundesamt GmbH (Federal Environment Agency) in Austria, will provide the latest update on ISO 14067 in his presentation entitled 'ISO 14067 'Carbon Footprint of Products' From Vision to Reality”.

Andy Salm, program director Organic Exchange Europe will give an overview of the work undertaken by the Organic Exchange and highlight some of the newer areas of work as they broaden their scope into all sustainable fibres and textiles. In his presentation 'The Sustainability Imperative – New Challenges in building textile Value Chains' Andy will discuss how brands and retailers are now scrutinising their entire textile supply chains from both a social and environmental point of view and how this scrutiny is moving right back to fibre production, whether it is natural or man made. This implies developing a greater knowledge of the supply chains and converting them to value chains, where there are sustainable benefits for all involved. The SWG will give an update on the work currently being undertaken by both themselves and the US Eco Working Group and will provide the audience with a new business resource that will allow them to find new sustainable information easily. This meeting is for all sizes of companies, small and large alike and is FREE for anyone attending ispo.

All you have to do is register to attend so that ispo security will allow you into the show early. And, maybe best of all, as you're expected to get up so early, the SWG thought they'd better provide you with breakfast, which The North Face have very kindly agreed to sponsor. To register simply email your name and company to info@europeanoutdoorsustainability.org The work of the SWG is NOT exclusive to members of the European Outdoor Group; it is operating on an open source basis and welcomes involvement from all areas of the supply chain.
