HTE to demonstrate best way to be more sustainable at Planet Textiles

Huntsman Textile Effects is pleased to be the major sponsor of the new international event with a focus on sustainability in the textile industry.

Event: Planet Textiles
Date & Venue: 18 March 2010, Convention and Exhibition Centre, Hong Kong

Planet Textiles is jointly organised by Ecotextile News, Messe Frankfurt and the Society of Dyers and Colourists and is dedicated to improving the environmental and social impact of the global textile and clothing supply chain, it is supported by leading industry organizations and international clothing retailers. Planet Textiles is unique in that it will run alongside Interstoff Asia Essential (17 – 19 March 2010), the leading trade show for eco-textiles and functional fabrics in Asia. No other conference or sustainability conference offers this unique platform.

Huntsman will present a paper on Sustainability Improvement within a Textile Processing Mill. Using a real case study, Huntsman Textile Effects will explain how mills can measure and evaluate the different criteria such as water and energy savings, carbon footprint and the like. Huntsman TE will also show the results of their efforts and demonstrate the best way to be more sustainable. Planet Textiles is the brainchild of John Mowbray, a pioneer of the public discussion on sustainability in the textile industry who also has been instrumental in furthering the cause and has organized conferences such as the RITE conference on sustainable textiles in London.

According to Mr Mowbray, the main thrust of Planet Textiles is to drive home the message to the manufacturers in Hong Kong and China that sustainability is here to stay; to show them that brands and retailers are serious about sustainable change in our industry, and perhaps most importantly of all, to show the manufacturers in the Far East they are an important piece in the jigsaw.

Speakers at the event include brands such as Adidas, Patagonia and KIK along with Chinese officials, manufacturers and a few suppliers. With this breadth of speakers we anticipate that Planet Textiles will attract a similar mixture of buyers, producers and suppliers from the supply chain and allow them to come together in under the eco-textiles message. In subsequent years Planet Textiles will take place alongside other Messe Frankfurt events around the world.
