We are delighted to have been part of this event, during which FCC Chairman Nicolas de Wasseige, ECOM Cocoa co CEO, held a welcoming speech that highlighted the importance of working collectively as an industry and supporting institutions like the FCC, to build a fair and equitable supply chain in a complex environment.

Sustainable Apparel and Textiles Conference Amsterdam

 

 

Charles Jannet and Zarina Giyasova from our global cotton team together with our global carbon manager Yazmin Leon Casos were delighted to attend the Sustainable Apparel and Textiles Conference in Amsterdam last week. 


During the two-day business conference organized by Innovation Forum, it was highlighted that brands and retailers in the textile industry must meet regulatory requirements like circular economy, and integrated supply chains. It's also crucial to build bridges across supply chain stakeholders and increase traceability by collecting primary data to reach net-zero targets.



To achieve this, there is a need for a paradigm shift towards:

 

  • ✔ regenerative practices
  • ✔ a holistic ecosystem approach in the industry
  • ✔ brand durability and second-hand/recycling programs

 

This is what we are working towards at ECOM.
