Net zero in the textile industry has garnered widespread attention in today's society, and low-carbon transformation and technological development have become key focal points. According to Cong Thuong (Industry& Trade) newspaper, Textile and garment businesses in Vietnam are taking steps to switch to green production to meet partners’ demand and achieve sustainable development. Greening textile and garment production chains is currently a global trend that are compulsory for businesses to achieve sustainability. It is also a requirement placed on manufacturers as the EU, which imports over 4 billion USD worth of textiles and garments from Vietnam annually, has proposed the imposition of some eco-regulations on imports. The adoption of the EU Sustainable and Circular Textiles Strategy significantly impacts textile production in Vietnam.
Promoting low-carbon transformation is inevitable and requires active measures at every stage of the entire industry chain, not only for retail companies to achieve net zero in their end products. By introducing new technological advancements and promoting clean production, improving energy efficiency, the textile industry can reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions, gradually working towards sustainable goals. At the same time, strengthening supply chain collaboration and transparency, and promoting carbon footprint disclosure are also crucial for driving the sustainable development of the entire industry chain.
Based on the background of green transformation, this summit will focus on how Vietnam's textile industry promotes sustainable development. We will invite relevant policy regulatory authorities, brands, retailers, textile manufacturers, material suppliers, non-governmental organizations, consulting companies, and sustainable solution companies to share and exchange practical methods.
