Event description

About this Event

About the event

Our event will provide a unique online, interactive platform, spread out over a 4-day period, to guide global apparel and textiles brands, suppliers, legislators, NGOs, academics and other stakeholders on how to combat this growing problem.

Our summit is kindly sponsored by The Nature Conservancy


Through cross-discipline presentations, discussions, Q&A and action planning we will focus on three key areas:

1. Measure: integrity and policy

2. Science: textile research and environmental impact

3. Product : innovation, technology and manufacture

Our product section is kindly sponsored by Conservation X Labs and their Microfiber Innovation Challenge
