ISKO proudly supports the virtual Textile Exchange Sustainability conference towards renewed efforts for momentum and best practice.

From November 2nd to November 6th, the leading denim innovator ISKO joined leading industry professionals from around the world at the 2020 Textile Sustainability Conference.

The Textile Exchange Sustainability Conference (November 2-6) is a formative event aimed at highlighting best practice and sustainability-related emerging trends and opportunities in the fashion industry. The first edition of the Textile Exchange conference to occur online, the event brought together more than 1,200 fashion industry professionals from all over the world, offering an agenda packed with sessions and network opportunities to discuss Science Based Targets, climate change, transparency and co-collaboration.

Whilst taking the pulse of the evolving impact of international circumstances, ISKO participated in the event as a trusted partner and member of Textile Exchange since March 2019. The company took the chance to exhibit its R-TWOTM technology, through which it has achieved Textile Exchange certifications across its 25,000 products: these are at either the Content Claim Standard, Global Recycled Standard, Organic Content Standard or Recycled Claim Standard levels, ensuring trust and certainty in chain of custody and material sourcing.

This program reduces raw material impact and highlights its ambitious Life-cycle Assessments (LCAs) project to develop verified Environmental Product Declarations (EPD®s) assessing the impact of all the products in its portfolio. The company also presented its first Sustainability Impact Report, which sets bold targets and provides a detailed overview of the company’s work within the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and ILO standard frameworks. These were also a central theme of the conference, focusing on Science Based Target initiatives and the crucial role of embedding these into business strategy. As outlined in the plenary session led by La Rhea Pepper, CEO and co-Founder of Textile Exchange, we are at the pivotal ‘Decade to Change’.

“Ambitious targets, positive collaboration and a forward-thinking vision will be the levers that set the pace of the fashion industry of tomorrow. It has never been more apparent that the time is now to create the change we would like to see in the coming years. The work we do in our operations is always aimed at enabling best practice and driving forward thinking. We are proud to be a trusted partner and member of the Textile Exchange and support their agenda towards a more sustainable and responsible fashion industry,” said Ebru Ozkucuk Guler, ISKO Senior CSR & Sustainability Executive.
