Advancing Textile and Garment Manufacturing Through Sustainable Innovation

Sustainable manufacturing is critical for business success in a competitive world. The global textile and apparel industry, built on complex linear supply chains, has resulted in high human and environmental costs. It is characterised by the high consumption of resources in a long process that generates a large amount of waste. By adopting a cleaner production approach, manufacturers and brands can enjoy the ‘triple bottom line’ of profit, people and planet while contributing to a circular economy.
