RMIT University in partnership with TFIA, invite to attend an evening lecture on the “Global Organic Textile Standard” – business opportunity in the sustainable cotton market.

This lecture gives you insight on how cotton sustainability standards are shaping and securing future supply within the fashion and textiles industry. The focus is on building better frameworks around people and planet securing and growing business profitability.
