Sustainable supply chains, from Filo to the Green Fashion Week

The reflections on the sustainability of textile-clothing chains emerged at the inauguration conference of the 48th edition of Filo were at the center of the report that Marinella Loddo (director of ITA-Agency, Milan) held at the round table of Green Fashion Week in Rome.

The Green Fashion Week in Rome (from the 6th to the 9th of November 2017) has been opened by a round-table dedicated to sustainable fashion and issues related to the innovation in the clothing and textile sector. As already discussed at the Filo’s conference, the debate has been focused on practices which aim at design, produce, distribute and dispose of those textile products with a greater focus on society and environment’s impact. The Italian textile industry has the possibility to demonstrate that the environmental impact of productions can be reduced without sacrificing the creation of beautiful and comfortable items. That is why “being sustainable” could become the strong point of the whole system. In addition to Marinella Loddo, the speakers of the round table were institutional representatives and entrepreneurs: from Carlo Medaglia (Ministry for Environment, one of the institutional promoters) to Filippo Serravalli (Radici Group), Marco Richetti (CEO of Hermes Lab and consultant for National Fashion Chamber); the moderator of the meeting was Massimiliano Falcone from World Bank initiative Connect4Climate. The Green Fashion Week is a non-profit initiative; its goal is to set a path towards sustainable and responsible fashion, by promoting the adoption of sustainable development models and responsible management systems, in order to satisfy the objectives undersigned by 193 UN country members with Agenda 2030 for sustainable development.
