Technology to help fashion value-chain turn green

Mar '10
Increasing pollution from vehicles and industrial units, deforestation, excessive use of chemicals, plastic, metals and other non-biodegradable material, expanding landfill sites are leaving devastating impacts on the environment.

This has intensified the need to minimize the environmental damages and make the earth a better place to live not only for the present generations but also for the future generations to come.

Fashion Industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world. It is the second largest water-consumer of all the industries of the world.

An interesting area of research is to emancipate the role of technology integration in the fashion industry and its contribution in the emergence of an ethical and green fashion value-chain.

The intervention of green technology in the fashion industry is bringing forth various aspects such as green material, green design, green manufacturing, green transportation, green retail, and green post-consumer management and so on.

These concepts have relevance to various key areas in the fashion value chain where eco-friendly technology and alternate solutions can replace the conventional methods.

The coming years are going to witness integration of green technology in various stages from fibre to fabric, from raw material to the finished fashion goods.

This will encompass the whole value-chain from across, farming, sourcing, designing, manufacturing aspects and manufacturer to retailer and finally to the consumer covering the warehousing, ordering, transportation, retailing, consuming and post-consumer management.
