CHINA: Green Textile Summit to discuss industry issues
Efforts to improve the sustainability of China's textile sector will come under the spotlight at an annual conference taking place in Beijing in June, with speakers including executives from the China National Textile and Apparel Council, Bureau Veritas, Hanesbrands and Greenpeace.
The 3rd China Green Textile Summit 2013 will discuss government policy, the industry situation, eco-textiles, energy saving and emission reduction, as well as health and safety.
It will look at current and future challenges facing China's green textile policies, the dyeing and printing industry, chemical fibres, energy and water conservation, environmental protection, making products more sustainable, and technology and equipment upgrades.
The conference will also discuss environmental heath and safety and CSR implications for brand owners and retailers, as well as the economic benefits of going green. And there will be an insight into the latest developments in China's waste textiles recycling system.
There will also be presentations from the China National Textile and Apparel Council, China Dyeing and Printing Association, Everlight, Greenpeace, NRDC, Azure International, Business Link Consulting, China Association of Resource Comprehensive Utilization.
China's textiles sector is the largest in the world, and as such is a critical link in improving the industry's sustainability. But the country's textile businesses have long been criticised by environmentalists for their pollution, waste and huge carbon emissions.
China's textile sector is one of seven industries being targeted by efforts to prevent and control chemical pollution in the country by 2015. While another directive calls for the creation of a 'circular economy' that systematically reuses waste materials and reduces pollution.
The 3rd China Green Textile Summit 2013 will be held on 17-18 June at the Renaissance Beijing Chaoyang Hotel, in Beijing, China.
