With an urge to bring a transformative change, the line-up of sessions across three days was around sustainability in textile manufacturing and technological advancements in the industry. This included sessions like "Circular Fashion: Building Pathways For ESG” organised by Conserve India that discussed the escalating carbon footprint due to lack of policy framework and operational regulations in textile industry.
The panel included industry experts who put forward their perspectives on the matter. Mr Raman Dutta, Founding Member & General Secretary, Brands & Sourcing Leaders Association, mentioned: “There are several schemes and initiatives from the government for MSMEs to become more sustainable like grants for water conservation, 50% reimbursement options for sustainable machinery and practices and other state-wide policies. It is the lack of awareness that is hindering this transition.” Mr Sandeep Chopra, Head - Sustainability & Impact, Tri-Impact Global laid stress on worker rights in circularity while Mr Gautam Malik, Founder, Jaggery Bags highlighted the need for engaging the community as a stakeholder in the circular economy. Recent world developments provide an opportunity to Indian industries to lead the way in circularity.
