Collaborate to innovate: reducing the textile industry’s environmental load

The textile supply chain has long been under pressure from a social responsibility and environmental perspective but recently, the drive for sustainability has ramped up a notch – and rightly so.

Textiles is the second most polluting industry on the planet and is responsible for a staggering 20% of global water pollution.

There is much debate over where responsibility for sustainability should lie, but the truth is that is we all have a part to play.

In the interest of facilitating a more collaborative approach, this paper invites perspectives from stakeholders from across the supply chain to secure a cleaner, greener, more efficient future for textiles:

  • Barriers to sustainable change
  • Key developments to-date
  • Likely future innovation sources
