Overview

We are pleased to invite you to join the upcoming webinar ‘Is the shift to plant-based materials in textile a sustainable solution for forests?’

This webinar is a side session to the OECD forum on Due Diligence in the Garment and Footwear Sector.

More textile companies are now considering switching from plastics and animal-based products to plant-based products. As a result, over 150 million trees are logged annually to make cellulose for clothing. To ensure that this shift does not drive further deforestation, how can due diligence processes make sure that plant-based materials are sustainably sourced?
