TÜV Rheinland plans to launch a keynote webinar as a part of its successful series of #AskADetoXpert webinars, titled: Time to Speed up Sustainability of the Fashion, Apparel and Textile Sector on December 10, 2020.
This webinar aims to promote and support the sustainability agendas of a wide range of industry stakeholders.
In addition to sharing an analysis of the opinions and economic expectations provided by participants during the event’s registration process, the webinar will explore Potential Outcome Scenarios for the Fashion Industry, examine the “Open Letter” coalition’s 7 Key Action Points, and unpack examples of successful initiatives that are helping to drive sustainability goals in the apparel and textile sector around the world.
Rakesh Vazirani, Head-Sustainability Services, Business Stream Products, TÜV Rheinland Group believes there is an opportunity for the fashion, apparel and textile sector to face current challenges and decide how best to proceed.After creating one of the largest consumer goods markets on the planet, based on highly sophisticated and economically vital value chains, the fashion industry has a duty to act responsibly as it works towards a resilient recovery, he says.
As a member of the ‘Open Letter’ coalition, TÜV Rheinland is determined to leveraging our expertise, infrastructure and wealth of industry knowledge to build back better and more sustainably from this crisis, and ensure that the COVID-19 pandemic helps to speed up the transformation of the sector, says Vazirani.
