SFA AT 2017 TEXTILE SUSTAINABILITY CONFERENCE - WASHINGTON DC, USA, OCTOBER 12th, 2017

Setting Sustainability Goals with Sound Science

In cooperation with the World Resources Institute and the Pacific Institute, SFA hosted a seminar focused on the importance of setting science based sustainability goals. Demand for clothing and footwear will rise sharply as families throughout the developing world enter the middle class. Today, the apparel industry is not prepared to meet significantly higher demand without putting unprecedented stress on our water, land and climate. This will put the apparel sector at great risk. Apparel companies must therefore make decisions grounded in environmental science. With those sustainable parameters in place, apparel companies will need innovative business models to meet customer and stakeholder expectations.
