March 20 - Responsible Wool Standard (RWS) Brand Training
Are you working with wool? If so, do you have a strategy to address the welfare of the sheep and the land they graze on? Are you able to confidently manage the risks in your supply chain and make accurate claims about the wool in your products? The Responsible Wool Standard (RWS) is a tool that can be used globally to address all of these issues, and it is being taken up by brands, suppliers and farmers all around the world. We invite you to attend our RWS event in London to learn about the standard and how you can work with it.

March 21 - Getting Your Fiber Mix Right For Sustainability, a TE Workshop on Preferred Fiber and Materials
TE Member: £150 (50% savings)
Textile companies, with the roots of their businesses in the fields, forests, and the ground, have an important role to play in the transition to a more resilient, sustainable and circular economy. Moving towards a preferred fiber and materials mix, or portfolio, is part of that transition and is a significant way to improve impact.
We invite you to join us for this interactive, one-off workshop to learn more about the fibers and materials that constitute a "preferred" portfolio, the standards supporting them, and TE's new Preferred Fiber and Materials (PFM) Industry Benchmark. The TE team, together with industry experts, will guide you through the process of building an effective PFM portfolio, and guest speakers from leading brands will share their experiences.
Cost to Attend:
Please note, seats are limited for both days and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
