Fibre Production & GHG Emission Reductions: How Important Is What Is Made VS. How It Is Made? Are Natural Fibres and Synthetics Equally Problematic?

This live webinar is part of Climate Action Week for Fashion & Apparel, March 18-22, 2024

Fibre Production (raw material production, material processing and sorting, and fibre prepration) and yarn and fabric production of both natural fibres and fossil-based synthetic fibres contribute to emissions. Some studies estimate that 12% of the industry’s total emissions come from fibre production and around 22% from yarn and fabric production.

During this session we will explore:

  • What can and should be done in these areas to reduce emissions at the pace and scale required?
  • What about the importance and impacts of fossil-based synthetics? A number of experts and NGOs are calling specifically for the phase out of these synthetic types. Is this what we should prioritise?
