Fashion with lower environmental impacts: supply chain decarbonization and durability of textile products webinar

Posted April 9, 2024 by BenChristie

Decarbonization roadmaps and changes in textile environmental labeling explored in an expert webinar.

SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, is delighted to be hosting a webinar, ‘Fashion with lower environmental impacts: supply chain decarbonization and durability of textile products’, on April 25, 2024.

The fashion industry has long been regarded as a sector with a high environmental impact. More and more brands, retailers and suppliers are joining the transformation to circular and low-carbon fashion in response to government pressure and the need to remain competitive.

When implementing decarbonization roadmaps, the fashion industry faces several challenges associated with supply chain carbon management and reduction. Presenters Evelyn Ma and Dr. Min Zhu will explore trends and strategies for carbon reduction and share case studies of decarbonization solutions for the whole supply chain, including inter alia, target setting, training and quantification.

The EU is also concerned about the fashion industry, with a textile strategy that focuses on greater product durability to reduce the sector’s environmental footprint. In particular, France wants to work on specific topics and has suggested the introduction of a voluntary environmental labeling standard for textile products in 2024.

Presenter Valérie Cimetière will discuss the latest updates on Product Environmental Footprint Category Rules (PEFCR) regarding durability and the new requirements for the environmental labeling of textile products in France. She will present details of the European project and the French framework, which will both lead to changes in textile environmental labeling in the coming years.

This event is aimed at senior management teams of brands and retailers, including sustainability/environmental health and safety/compliance managers, as well as supply chain partners.
