The panel will be moderated by Emily Walzer, Editor of Textile Insight, and will include the following experts:

“Sustainability is a critical evolution for the future health and longevity of the textile and apparel industry,” says Dr. Manfred Wentz, Senior Policy Advisor with Oeko-Tex and newly appointed Adjunct Professor on Sustainability at the College of Textiles. “Many companies are doing remarkable things to make our industry safer, cleaner, and more environmentally responsive. Oeko-Tex is proud to bring together the authorities who can share their experiences in this endeavor. And it is particularly fitting to host this event at NC State University, the intellectual hub of the global textile industry.”
