Last year, Texworld Evolution Paris celebrated its 25th anniversary with a focus on sustainability. This year, the trade fair continues to keep this approach by combining the concepts of ecology and economic development in Texpertise Econogy. The term “Econogy” demonstrates the crucial role of sustainable development for the economic success of the company. This principle will serve as a guide for Texworld Evolution to structure supplier search methods on its sourcing platform.
Texworld Paris 2024 launches the Econogy Finder that will enable visitors to list and access all (around 80) suppliers of sustainably produced textiles via an online directory. The stands of the exhibitors whose activities in terms of sustainable supply chains have been verified will be marked with clearly recognizable Econogy signs.
Moreover, a number of conferences dedicated to best practices and challenges in the field of sustainable development will be held under the Econogy Talks signs. They include:
11:15am - 12:30pm
Texpertise Econogy – Orientation, know-how and transparency. Now at Texworld / Apparel Sourcing Paris
2:00pm - 3:00pm
Towards a zero waste fashion future: materials and tools
1:30pm - 2:30pm
Why and how to communicate about its social and environmental impact?
