Coming soon: Spotlight week on bio-based textiles

The Covid-19 pandemic is changing the world, but the bio-based industry still remains committed to their sustainability efforts. Climate change, plastic pollution and worker’s well being are too urgent to ignore.

Many brands have been focusing on shifting from a linear to a circular business model for some time. They are also constantly innovating and developing their green initiatives. In addition, companies see a positive trend in customer behaviour, where more and more customers want to know where and how their garments are made, and how they can contribute to a sustainable fashion future.

In a global crisis, retailers across all sectors are forced to cut costs and shift priorities. So, with the onset of economic challenges, brands and companies may have to make sure that additional value is created for their products. They may also have to introduce smarter processes for manufacturing as well.

Starting from 18th May,  Bio Market Insights will feature key figureheads within the bioeconomy community to shine a spotlight on the current bio-based textiles market, goals achieved and challenges they are facing throughout that week.
