India’s Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has stated that India’s greatest textile strength is its ability to connect the glorious history of Indian tradition with today’s talent technology with traditions. It’s a thread that brings together style, sustainability, scale, and skill.

Many Indian export councils and trade organisations have historically had a strong presence at the Global Sourcing Expo in Australia Melbourne and Sydney. This year is the second year that the event is held biannually and the upcoming edition to be held at the Sydney International Convention Centre from Wednesday 12 to Friday 14 June 2024 will feature another strong showing by India. “As a truly global event, we welcome the participation of a broad range of Indian companies and participation by The Federation of Indian Export Organisations and Council for Leather Exports India.

Sustainability is at the forefront of the 2024 Global Sourcing Expo, recognising the growing calls from consumers for ethical production practices and traceability in the supply chain. Here, Julie believes that India’s wealth of raw materials, particularly natural fibres such as cotton, silk and jute, and preference for traditional manufacturing processes will be a significant advantage. “Sustainability and eco-friendly practices are front and centre for Indian companies, recognising the opportunity to not only help the market, but also capitalise on new marketing opportunities by following sustainable practices.”

Global Sourcing Melbourne held 19 – 21 November at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre is also on track to showcase the largest participation by Indian companies since its inception. It is exciting that India is embracing both the Sydney and Melbourne editions understanding the opportunities that the two major markets of Australia confer. It also enables continuity for both exporters and buyers and will further amplify the opportunities for sourcing from India.

Copenhagen Fashion Week's May bulletin delves into EU policy landscape

Copenhagen Fashion Week's May bulletin delves into EU policy landscape

Copenhagen Fashion Week has published its May policy bulletin that takes a deep dive into the European policy landscape and its significant implications for the fashion industry. With the European Parliament concluding its final session of the 9th parliamentary term on April 25th, 2024, and the European Elections scheduled to take place on June 6-9, the bulletin focussed on the major agreements approved, such as the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive, the Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation, and the ESG Ratings Regulation.

The European Parliament's final session marked the end of a significant legislative period. Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) gathered for plenary sessions in Strasbourg or Brussels to discuss and vote on crucial issues. The discussions and approvals made during these sessions will have far-reaching impacts on various sectors, including fashion.

Despite the progress made, not all negotiations between European Union (EU) co-legislators (parliament and council) were finalised by the end of the legislative term. Some proposals by the European Commission remain unresolved due to disagreements in interinstitutional negotiations or the inability of national governments to establish a common position, Copenhagen Fashion Week said in its May policy bulletin.

With the European Parliament elections approaching, the newly elected MEPs will soon begin their term. They will need to align themselves with one of the seven parliamentary groups or choose to remain unaffiliated, which could limit their influence. Following the announcement of election results, the new MEPs will have a month to settle in Brussels and decide on their committee memberships. The first plenary session of the new term is scheduled for July 16 to 19, 2024.

As the bulletin highlights, the upcoming European Parliament elections are crucial. The decisions made by MEPs have a direct impact on various industries, including fashion.
 

 

AI can reduce fast fashion's carbon footprint: UNSW Research

AI can reduce fast fashion's carbon footprint: UNSW Research

AI-driven technologies can be harnessed for climate action and significantly advance environmental and market performance, according to the findings of a new study, co-authored by the UNSW Institute for Climate Risk & Response.

The fast fashion industry is one of the world’s biggest polluters. Employing some 75 million people and valued at over $2.5 trillion (A$3.8 trillion), it is responsible for about 10 per cent of global carbon emissions.

Bangladeshi manufacturers are recognised for their worldwide exports. They produce most of the apparel for leading fast-fashion brands such as Primark, Nike, H&M, and others in 150 countries. In recent years, consumers and governments have pressured these brands to reduce emissions and the environmental impact of their global supply chains.

“H&M has committed to a 56 per cent reduction in emissions and 100 per cent renewable electricity in its supply chain and operations by 2030. A larger number of clothing brands, such as Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, and Next, also require their supplying factories to be green, complying with environmental and safety regulations,” said Grant.

“AI-powered climate service solutions are technologies like big data and machine learning that can reduce routine, repetitive, simple, and standardised tasks,” explained Professor Grant. “These include emission measurement, calculating individual products' carbon footprint, identifying risk factors, forecasting demand to reduce waste, and climate education."

“A key feature of the model discussed in the paper is that it points to how AI can enhance the firm's environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance and credentials as well as market performance in terms of productivity, efficiency, quality assurance, and overall competitiveness. AI can improve a business's long-term sustainability, growth, and profitability.
