Textile Exchange Asia Supplier Workshop
The topic of the Textile Exchange Asia Supplier Workshop in Hong Kong of June 16, 2016 at 10 am-5 pm: Essential Tools for Creating Material Change in the Textile Supply Chain. Participation is limited to 45
Please join Textile Exchange in Hong Kong at this highly informative workshop tailored specifically for suppliers and manufacturers in the Asia region. This workshop will be designed to introduce you to Textile Exchange and familiarize you with who we are and what we do. The focus of the workshop will be on two core areas of Textile Exchange’s work: Preferred Fibre & Materials and Standards & Certification. There will also be an additional session focusing specifically on the new Responsible Wool Standard (RWS) and strategies to source RWS certified fibre.
Jeff Wilson, Director – Business Value Strategy & Development, and Evonne Tan, Creative & Analytics Specialist, will be covering the Fibre & Materials portion of the workshop, utilizing Textile Exchange’s learning and decision support tools such as material summaries, snapshots, learning modules, and benchmarking. These TE resources have been designed as easy to use “how-to” tools to better understand and adopt the leading preferred fibre and materials used today in the textile sector: preferred cottons, recycled polyesters, manmade cellulosics, down, and wool.
Anne Gillespie, Director of Industry Integrity, will look at the market and risk issues that are driving certification, give an overview of TE standards, and take a deep look at the chain of custody requirements that are the foundation of all TE standards. For companies that are, or will be, working with the Organic Content Standard, the Recycled Claim Standard, the Global Recycled Standard, the Responsible Down Standard, or the Responsible Wool Standard, this will be an important opportunity. Anne will also hold an optional session for companies looking to work with the RWS: she will discuss strategies.
Additional details and registration – Registration will be limited to 45 people on a first-come, first-served basis, here
