Oeko-Tex, an independent textile testing institute working for the enhanced product safety and sustainable production in the textile value chain, is set to promote sustainability at The Summer Conference and at The AAFA Product Safety Seminar, to be held at The Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), the epicentre of the apparel industry in June 2017.

The Summer Conference at FIT, entitled ‘Sustainability & Textiles—New Models’, will be held from June 5 to 8, 2017, and will address sustainability standards, closed loop, and circular economies, farm to fashion, and textile innovations. The AAFA Seminar, sponsored by Oeko-Tex, will be held at FIT on June 6, 2017 and the AAFA Sourcing Conference, will be held on June 7 and 8, 2017.

OEKO-TEX will host its 25th anniversary reception for all conference participants, customers, media representatives, and other colleagues at FIT.

Anna Czerwinska, the International Oeko-Tex Association’s head of marketing and communication, will discuss third party standards at the FIT Summer Conference event. The Harmonising Standards panel will take place on June 5, 2017. Representatives from other certification organisations and certified manufacturers will join the panel as well. Czerwinska will also moderate the State of Sourcing – Trends, Shifts, and Looking Ahead panel at the AAFA Sourcing Conference on June 7, 2017.

Globally harmonised standards like those in the Oeko-Tex system set the bar for defining and measuring textile safety and sustainability. From raw materials through to the final product, third party certifications help brands and retailers reassure consumers that products are made in environmentally and socially responsible ways and are safe for people to use.
