Sustainability – iTechStyle Summit 2022

In the area of ​​sustainability, Ana Tavares points out the evolution registered since the last edition. She thinks that nowadays, the word “sustainability” has been transformed into many others, such as; decarbonization, transparency, traceability. Sustainability is no longer a buzzword and has defragmented into those practical issues that are what will make us develop the industry in a more responsible and ethical way.

One of the most important themes was the use of Circular Textiles and the Sustainable Development Goals.
