Lenzing Seminar Series

Moderator: Tricia Carey, Global Director Business Development, Apparel, Lenzing Fibers, Inc.

The textile industry is on the march to circularity.  A wide variety of companies, along with our supply chain partners, are working on new processes, systems and technologies to enable the circular transformation. Accelerating Circularity, a collaborative group of companies, has spent the past year researching, mapping and identifying the links needed to bring these circular systems to life, and we are sharing this knowledge openly across the industry.  Join us as we share the top 3 learnings from our research and partner's experience to develop new maps of functioning, scalable circular textile systems.

Textile Talk

Moderator: Edward Hertzman - Executive Vice President Fairchild Media; Founder & President Sourcing Journal, Fairchild Media and Sourcing

Over the last 10 years, working conditions all along the supply chain have been under increased scrutiny. Fair wages, labor rights and unsafe conditions have been largely discussed in media and board rooms alike, even more so following the Rana Plaza tragedy in Bangladesh eight long years ago. Despite all this, on the ground, little has changed for the better. Experts discuss the disconnect between policy and action and what steps need to be taken for actionable improvements.

Lenzing Seminar Series

Moderator: John Mowbray - Founder and Director, MCL News & Media (Ecotextile News)

Climate change is the defining crisis of our time and it is happening even more quickly than we feared. Billions of tons of CO2 are released into the atmosphere every year. Human activity is producing greenhouse gas emissions at a record high, with no signs of slowing down. According to a ten-year summary of UNEP Emission Gap reports, we are on track to maintain a “business as usual” trajectory. However we are far from powerless in the face of this global threat; as UN Secretary-General António Guterres pointed out recently, “the climate emergency is a race we are losing, but it is a race we can win”. Hear how it is not “business as usual” for these organizations.

Blockchain technology is the next step towards traceability and transparency in retail.

Nevertheless, consumers can gain a new window into the apparel and home products they consume, allowing them to shop smarter and support those suppliers and brands that engage in practices they approve of. Take a deep dive with some of the most innovative fiber companies in the industry as we walk through case studies to learn more about getting started and the latest technologies used today.
