This episode is an audio version of a keynote that host of this podcast, Kim van der Weerd delivered at Planet Textiles, which was hosted by the Sustainable Apparel Coalition as part of ITMA – a machinery expo for the apparel sector in Milan in June 2023. She reflects on her work in various decarbonization projects – from a forthcoming research report she’s collaborating on for Transformers Foundation, to Supplier Meet-Up discussions hosted by the Asia Garment Hub, and beyond. She shares her own views and opinions on where the industry seems to agree, where it doesn’t, and how we might understand each other better.
