The UKFT Sustainability Conference | 28 September 2023
28 Sep 2023 | TBA
The UKFT Sustainability Conference unites the textile industry for a common goal: to shape the future of our sector. This event offers UK manufacturers, innovators, policymakers and other experts a chance to discuss how to support the industry’s journey towards sustainability.
Created by The UK Fashion and Textile Association with the support of The Textile Livery Group, this unique event launched on the 12th of May 2022. We were honoured to welcome HRH The Princess Royal who, in her role as President of UKFT, opened the very first UKFT Sustainability in UK Textiles Conference.
Key players from the UK textile industry such as Tim Clark, Technical Director of John Smedley, and Dr John Parkinson, Founder of iinouiio, shared what sustainability meant for their businesses. As well as touching on their best practices on sustainability, they addressed how the UK textile manufacturing sector can use sustainability to boost its competitiveness.
Save the date and join us for the second edition of the UKFT Sustainability in UK Textiles Conference, on the 28th of September 2023. Further details will be announced soon.
