Business sustainability is more and more becoming one of the most important objectives of the Textile and Clothing industry. Beyond the economic factors, critical to the success of any business, many companies are now also considering the financial impact from environmental and social issues. Textile & Clothing production uses high levels of raw materials, water, energy and chemicals and often generates air, water and soil pollution through untreated effluent and waste, which can have a big impact on the environment. Under the pressure of the consumers and NGOs, new and sustainable approaches are being developed and adopted by textile and clothing companies across the EU.

Topics can thus include, but are not limited to, the following aspects of sustainability of Textile & Clothing:

  • Circular economy
  • Waste disposal
  • Water consumption
  • Energy saving
  • New sustainable chemistry

We encourage submission of the following different types of contributions, particularly welcoming articles from TCBL Associates:

  • Journalistic work (blog posts, opinion pieces, trend updates, etc.)
  • Case studies (profiles or stories of exemplary businesses)
  • Academic or theoretical work (8-10 page research articles, 3-5 page reports on work in progress)
