Planet Textiles will take place in Bangalore on May 24 in Bangalore. This is about environmental issues facing the global textile sector. This year’s event will tackle the crucial issue of textile waste water pollution, chemical management and natural resource conservation including both energy and water use.
Last year the event took place in Denmark and attracted around 450 senior industry executives and speakers from brands such as VF Corporation, Nike, Marks & Spencer, Puma, Gap and Levi Strauss.
The Planet Textiles event on sustainability was first launched in Hong Kong in 2009. It features innovators in the global textile and retail businesses who are reshaping the industry. It explores company engagement, collaboration and transparency. Visitors learn about radical new environmental initiatives and business models in the textile supply chain.
Speakers will present methods for improving and managing global sustainability measures with emphasis on third party, independent certifications as important and effective business tools. Calls for increased sustainability and transparency, especially at the consumer level, are growing substantially around the world. This international megatrend will require companies along the entire global textile supply chain to accelerate their sustainability initiatives in order to meet the market’s demands. Brands and retailers are tweaking their supply chains to become more compliant, more transparent, and more responsive.
