Textile Exchange Climate+ Stories from The Field

Aug 25, 2022  |  3:00 - 5:00 pm

Mindful Fashion NZ are delighted to be an event partner for Textile Exchange in Auckland, New Zealand as part of our work to increase uptake of better materials.

Textile Exchange Climate+ Stories from The Field

Under the Climate+ strategic direction, Textile Exchange will be the driving force for urgent climate action with a goal of 45% reduced CO2 emissions from textile fibre and material production by 2030.

While the need for this strategy and the overall target for the industry is clear, it’s not always easy to see how this will work in practice at the raw material production level.

This event gives an opportunity to hear from experts working at the raw material level who are driving this work, including NZ Merino who run the ZQRX regenerative wool program.

Please join Mindful Fashion New Zealand for a morning of learning and storytelling, and the opportunity to meet one-on-one with global and local Textile Exchange team members.

Hear from:

  • Dave Maslen, New Zealand Merino
  • Hanna Denes, Climate+ Impact Strategy Manager, Textile Exchange
  • Rui Fontoura, Fiber & Materials Strategy Lead - Cotton, Textile Exchange
  • Anna Heaton, Fiber & Materials Strategy Lead - Animal Materials, Textile Exchange
  • Valentina Zarew, Oceania Ambassador & Strategist, Textile Exchange

The event will include information and updates from Textile Exchange as well as time for discussion and Q&A.

Time: 3.00pm – 5.00pm

Location Sustainable Coastlines Flagship | Auckland CBD

Light refreshments will be served.
