Environment, sustainability, social standards are big, important issues. Many people are concerned about climate change, global warming, too many CO2 emissions, lack of human rights in producing countries, etc. In this context, textiles play a big role. In our current issue, we therefore focus on the Circular Economy. It is considered the key to the implementation of SDG 12 - sustainable consumption and production. We were also able to conduct two exciting exclusive interviews: Multi-Plot owner and managing director Joachim Rees explains why digital textile printing will significantly change the garment manufacturing process. Wolfgang Lemb, Executive Member of the Executive Board of IG Metall, comments on the current industry report on textile machinery manufacturing in Germany from the employees' point of view.
Find this and much more in the current issue of textile network (3/2021).
We hope you have an enjoyable read!
