Bluesign Technologies and Textile Exchange will host back-to-back sustainability conferences in October 2018 in Milan. The forums will focus on sustainable textile and apparel production. Industry leaders, including some of most recognised brands and retailers, will convene to discuss the most important sustainability challenges facing the textile sector.

The 5th Bluesign conference is hosted biannually by Bluesign technologies. The Switzerland-based service company provides the global Bluesign system that ensure materials used in textile and apparel manufacturing processes are safe for consumers, workers and the environment. The conference will take place October 18 and 19, 2018 in Milan. This year’s conference theme is ‘Traceability. Networkability. Transformability: Stitching the blue way together’.

From October 22 to 24, 2018, Textile Exchange, the global non-profit that promotes the adoption of preferred fibres and materials, integrity and standards, as well as responsible supply networks, will hold its annual textile sustainability conference. Its theme is ‘United by Action: Accelerating Sustainability in Textiles and Fashion’.

Simonetta Carbonaro, consumer psychologist as well as trade and consumer industry visionary, will open the Bluesign conference by highlighting the great challenge posed by transformation and why transparency matters in today’s society along with its connection to responsible industry. In addition, non-textile case studies will provide insights beyond the industry in an effort to gather new ideas while supporting common ones. Traceability and the need for transformation will also be addressed. A high-level discussion will explore finance in sustainability and additional topics important to a CEO’s agenda while proving the business case of sustainability to re-design today’s business models. The blue way will be presented as part of the transformation. Head of the ethical fashion initiative of the international trade centre, Simone Cipriani, will present a high-energy closing keynote speech on how ethical fashion can be achieved in the most challenging locations, according to a press release by Bluesign.

Featuring high-level discussions on the sustainable development goals, fibre, and materials, circularity, micro-plastics, water, and sustainability in the luxury sector, Textile Exchange’s conference is expected to attract more than 500 attendees from across the industry. The conference–designed for professionals in CSR, sourcing and supply chains, product and business development and design, education and advocacy, offers opportunities to learn about real sustainability solutions that drive change through the value chain and shape the industry’s future.
