Sustainable business and innovation was one of the key themes that got a major push during the Netherlands Trade Mission to India 2018 between May 22 and 25. With over 200 participants, 140 firms and institutions and Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, it was the biggest ever Dutch trade mission to India and twice the size of previous flagship mission in 2015.

“Let's make all trade and investments between India and the Netherlands Sustainable and Inclusive” is the motto the Indo-Dutch Sustainability Forum or the INDUS-Forum breathes, according to a press release from the Netherlands Embassy in India.

An example of this INDUS approach is the Circular Yarn Initiative. Indian and Dutch textile companies are joining forces to produce circular textiles for the European market. Innovative techniques have made it possible to turn textile waste into new high quality materials.

Transforming waste into high quality materials will save water and reduce the use of chemicals, while at the same time staying competitive, producing high quality circular textiles for the mainstream market, the press release said. (DS)
