🔉Houston, we have a problem! Fashion sustainable sourcing trends for 2024 2025 are multifaceted.
👉 Emerging Trends in Sourcing and Eco-design 2024-2025 ‼️ Stirring Controversy ‼️
🇫🇷 🇪🇺 Between the European Union’s 2025 and 2030 objectives, #CSRD #OERD regulations, and the relentless growth of #fastfashion, even with a more sustainable approach, we must reduce our ecological footprint!
Because, the textile industry heavily relies on synthetic materials like polyester and polyamide, notorious for their high CO2 emissions and microfiber pollution, we have a problematic to be solved.
Tecnon Orbichem’s study on fiber consumption sheds light on this issue.
✨ ✨ Shifting from a volume-driven strategy to a value-centric approach ✨✨
Explore our reports on innovative sourcing strategies.
In the realm of #CircularSourcing:
🤓 Our teams are learning to identify and calculate #reboundeffects, #reuse, and #surcycling.
🔂 Embracing Circularity & the Rebound Effect
👉 Turning a challenge into an eco-design opportunity 📍CETIA
👉 Exploring the Pros and Cons of Man-made Cellulosic Fibers 📍Renaissance Textile
👉 Reverse-tracing for transparency 📍Reverse Resources
PGE Circular Sourcing Presentation
Within the #Innovation sphere:
🤓 We’re raising awareness about a systemic approach to innovation.
🔬 Biosourced Biomimicry
🚨 Quick reminder: Vegan leather is still evolving! We’re discussing alternatives, often with synthetic finishes that align with #circularity.
🔎 Scaling up biosourced materials’ solutions through the DNA of natural fibers.
In the Sourcing Thinking family:
🤓 Just as in design thinking, sourcing is a language to cultivate upstream and in context.
👉 Thinking about the adoption curve, Reassurance Design, and proven facts.
👉 Adopting #ContributiveEnterprise reflexes.
In the Biodiversity family:
🤓 Preparing for justifications and restrictions on eco-whitewashing claims ⛔️ biodegradable, environmentally friendly, carbon neutrality.
🌊 Be water, my friend:
👉 Exploring solutions to reduce the release of natural, synthetic, or artificial microfibers 📍 The Microfiber Consortium
👉 Developing algae-based #biopolymers by 📍PYRATEX®
👉 Addressing the finishing chain (dyes, treatments) seriously.
👉 Eutrophication of water for environmental labeling, where do you stand?
Regenerative Sourcing 📊
👉 Studying the legal and ethical framework of regenerative approaches based on regenerative agriculture.
👉 Understanding that it suits natural materials best 📍Traille
👉 Adding the crucial proximity KPI
👉 Stay tuned; I have discussed it soon with Rija Goldscheider on the “We Do Need to Talk” podcast. Only in French sorry!
In the Science-based Target family:
🤓 Collaborating with specialist engineers and SAAS platforms 📍 SWEEP, 📍Carbonfact, or others.
👉 Decarbonization: Teaching teams to calculate, track data, and adapt to #carbonfootprint measurement. Monitoring this data to create new #procurement performance benchmarks.
👉 Carbon capture for innovative materials 📍Fairbrics
👉 Carbon Credits: How does it work, and what’s its purpose?
👉 Quickly aligning with the net-zero initiative with concrete actions.
👉 Ditching the idea that a product or company can be carbon-emission-free! We reduce and consider #LCA, post-life, and the experience we provide.
🤓 Challenges: Re-commerce options, the new e-commerce, CSRD, and double materiality for performance.
