Talking Textiles Sustainability in Milan: BlueSign + Textile Exchange
Sustainable textile and apparel production will take center stage in October in Milan as two leading organizations – Bluesign technologies and Textile Exchange – collaborate and descend on the legendary fashion capital to hold back-to-back conferences over the course of five days. Industry leaders, including some of the world’s most recognized brands and retailers, will convene to discuss the most important sustainability challenges facing the sector.
The 5th bluesign® conference is hosted biannually by bluesign technologies. The Switzerland-based service company provides the global bluesign® system that ensure materials used in textile and apparel manufacturing processes are safe for consumers, workers and the environment. The conference will take place October 18 and 19 at the Cavallerizze, part of Milan’s recently renovated Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnologia.
This year’s conference theme is TraceAbility - NetworkAbility - TransformAbility - Stitching the Blue way together.”
Immediately after, from October 22 to 24, Textile Exchange – the global nonprofit that promotes the adoption of preferred fibers and materials, integrity and standards, as well as responsible supply networks – will hold its annual Textile Sustainability Conference at the Milano Congressi (MiCo), one of Europe’s largest convention centers. Its theme is “United by Action: Accelerating Sustainability in Textiles and Fashion.”
“We are pleased to cooperate with Textile Exchange and connect professionals around the world to drive the sustainability transformation in the industry,” said Jill Dumain, Chief Executive Officer at Bluesign technologies. “The 5th Bluesign® conference will offer plenty of opportunities for match making and networking with other attendees and sharing your business prospects with like-minded colleagues in the industry.”
