Sustainability and Circularity a manufacturer’s view – SDC webinar

Course Description

The second webinar in the SDC sustainability Series.

The impact of the manufacture of textiles is well documented and the impact of wet processing of textiles is often quoted as being the largest impact due to the amounts of water used and the chemicals and dyes used. How a manufacturer is responding to these challenges and improving their processes is important to understand for everyone. This session provides a global diverse view of the issues faced and the solutions being provided.
