Sustainability and technology acceleration - Surfing the waves


Thursday 27th April 2017

16:45 - 17:45 CEST

Presentation Area next to the PERFORMANCE FORUM

Recycling, “sustainovation”, biodegradability - the past years have been proving that issues of sustainability gain more and more importance in the textiles industry. But what does sustainability truly mean? When do you know that your organization is sustainable? How can a concept be developed around it, that offers innovations as well as long-term value? How can this challenge together with the great technological acceleration turn out as a business opportunity instead of threat? These are the questions the presentation answers by introducing the scientifically underpinned systems approach. This approach does not only deliver structure where confusion has been before, but also leads to strategic solutions matching the needs of the real business world. Rather than picking up a trend or starting to act mindless, it focuses on tackling the underlying challenges to reveal the real problems and solutions.
