World Textile Summit 2015

The World Textile Summit is a unique one-day event that brings together the world's most influential textile business leaders to debate issues of strategic importance to the global industry.

Going beyond the agendas of other textile sustainability conventions, it will seek to answer the questions that really matter to strategic decision makers: What returns can I expect from capital investment in clean technologies? What do investors think about sustainability issues?

Vivek Tandon, Co-founder, Aloe Group will set out why strong sustainability credentials can help a business to attract investment from capital markets.

Aloe states that its mission is to develop hard-asset based companies, which provide proven technological solutions to environmental and social challenges – especially those experienced by the high growth markets of Asia and it bases its approach on the UN Global Compact. Its investments include India's Polygenta, which makes filament yarns from recycled PET bottles.

Sustainability as a key factor in differentiating brands and companies Paula Oliveira, Director, Interbrand will explore how companies can differentiate themselves from their competitors through their commitment to sustainability and build a unique identity that will attract customers.

Her advice comes against the background of a recent survey of CEOs by the United Nations Global Compact on sustainability, which revealed that 'brand trust and reputation' were their top reasons for taking action on sustainability. However, others have warned of the temptation of 'greenwashing', which can undermine trust, and stress that sustainability must be about driving substantial and authentic change.
