This years theme, “Shaping Tomorrows Industry”, focuses largely on sustainability touching on subjects such as;

  • Fashion Futures 2025: Making Sense of Uncertainty.  Scenarios for the Future of the Industry
  • Reducing the Impact of Textiles on the Environment – A Chemical Manufacturers View
  • Consumer Attitudes and Behaviours Around Textile Purchasing, Use and Disposal.
  • Global Cotton Production: Trends and Challenges in sustainability
  • Sustainability in Textiles – Progress and Next Steps?
  • Ethical Sourcing Issues

The goal and vision of RITE Group as stated on their website is to develop and provide advice and fact based information to reduce the negative environmental effects of the production, use and disposal of textiles and to drive forward the sustainable and ethical production of textiles and apparel throughout the global supply chain.  They provide a forum for different sectors of the textile industry to share views and best practice and our success is based on the facilitation of discussions between industry, retail, academia, media, scientists, designers and government.
