CCI Sponsors Virtual Sustainable Apparel and Textile Conference Organized by Innovation Forum

This event, which was supposed to take place in Amsterdam, had to be switched to a virtual platform due to COVID-19. This did not deter attendance and with a total of 237 delegates, the agenda was focused on how the apparel industry could transform factories, engage consumers, drive circularity and reduce climate impact across the fashion and textile supply chains.
With a mix of panel discussions, presentations, virtual networking opportunities and breakout sessions, the conference lasted three days and included an opportunity for participants to learn more about sustainability, circularity and European Union policies such as the Green Deal and traceability.
Participants included brands and retailers including VF, H&M, Decathlon, Patagonia, Hugo Boss, Tchibo, G-star, Zalando, John Lewis, New Look, Aldi, Otto Group, Tom Tailor, Bestseller, S.Oliver and The Very Group. Additional participants were organizations such as Textile Exchange (which recently added the U.S. Cotton Trust Protocol on its list of preferred fibers and materials | https://cottoncouncilinternational.cmail19.com/t/i-l-xiuulty-njklkhruu-y/ |), WWF, Carbon Trust, Fairtrade Foundation and Cotton Connect. The European Commission’s deputy head of unit, environment, sustainable production, products and consumption also attended.
