Textiles sustainability seminar in Bangladesh

29
May '12
Textile Exchange and Solidaridad in cooperation with Control Union Certifications Bangladesh will host Textiles Sustainability Seminar on June 2, 2012, at Lakeshore Hotel in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Brands and Retailers are becoming increasingly concerned about the circumstances under which their products are made. In addition to social conditions in factories, environmental aspects are now receiving more and more attention as well. Increased interest in textile sustainability from raw materials selection to more sustainable production practices is a lasting trend. Topics receiving increasing attention include waste generation, effluent emissions, efficient utilization of resources such as water and energy, the substitution of hazardous chemicals and restricted substances in final products.

This seminar will address many of the concerns that affect the textile industry and update on recent developments globally.

While organic cotton remains a vital element in the sustainable sourcing strategies of brands, they are also looking at other raw materials including different cotton options, recycled fibers, as well as cellulosic fibers. There is also an increased interest in reducing the environmental footprint of wet processes, including cleaner production, the use of more sustainable chemicals and the development of innovative and efficient technologies.

All of these issues are beginning to impact brands and retailers sourcing decisions and countries that respond to these concerns have a better chance of building their competitive differentiation.

Learn from national and international experts about a range of different topics including preferred fibers choices, certification and labeling, responsible wet processing options and cleaner production, as well as RSL management.
