Dina Dunn, General Manager of Blink, a marketing company specializing in the textile supply chain, will moderate a panel at Texworld USA featuring some of the industry’s most important global, third party textile product and manufacturing certifications.
 
The seminar, entitled “The What, Where and How of Garment Production”, will focus on the contributions independent certifications can make to successful relationships between suppliers and brands. The seminar, part of the Lenzing Seminar Program, will be held on July 22nd at 11:00 am. Texworld USA runs July 22nd-24th at the Javits Convention Center.
 
“Major brands and retailers who source textile products from around the globe recognize that partnerships with like-minded manufacturers are integral to the success of their sustainability strategies,” Dunn says. “Third party certifications can play a significant role in increasing transparency, reducing complexity, and communicating mutual commitment to environmental and social responsibility.”
 
Four highly respected organizations will be represented in the panel discussion with Dunn:
-Sam Moore of Hohenstein Institute America will discuss OEKO-TEX certifications for hazard-free textile products and sustainable manufacturing facilities
-Sandra Marquadt will present the Global Organic Textile Standard
-Avedis Seferian will address WRAP, the Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production certification
-Anne Gillespie, Director of Integrity at the Textile Exchange, will address effective steps for improving the industry’s sustainability profile
