The “Asian Dialogues on Sustainability in the Textile and Garment Industry” series was established by GIZ FABRIC and the STAR network in order to foster collaboration and strengthen regional knowledge exchange for greater social, environmental and economic sustainability in the sector. Launched in 2015, the series brings together industry enthusiasts and representatives – from brands, suppliers, workers, civil society, and government bodies from Asia to cultivate regional, sector-specific dialogue.

To date, the conference has been held ten times, allowing around 800 participants to discuss their experience with sustainable production topics, share regional knowledge and explore innovative initiatives for sustainability in the garment and textile sector.

 

This years’ conference theme ‘’Asian Dialogues for Greener Production’’ is focused on identifying and discussing environmental aspects of production in the textile and garment industry. With major challenges ahead, GMAC and GIZ FABRIC to connect the change makers and innovators in order to foster cleaner production and sustainability in the industry.

 

The four workshops on the use of solar energy, green production financing, recycling in production countries and the value of environmental data will allow for great interactions between participants and speakers. With moderators Jost Wagner and Stephen Frost, a number of panels will provide great insights into the industry (please see agenda in registration form). We look forward to welcoming Pascale Moreau as our keynote speaker.
