As fashion & textile industry leaders, we now realize that we bear responsibility to prevent and reduce any adverse impact on people and the environment by our own operations in the supply chain.
The enormous amounts of water, energy and chemicals that are used in cultivation and further processing of fibres is nothing new. The challenge is to implement and embed a sustainable materials strategy in your company. In 2017 we published the Sustainable Material Guide to inform you about the (more) sustainable alternatives that are commercially available. Modint members as well as signatories of the Dutch Agreement of Garment & Textile use the guide to assess the environmental impact of their materials.
On April 17th we will provide garment companies with new insights to work on concrete improvements. At the Modint Sustainable materials inspiration day we will inspire you with this programme
