The textile and clothing industry is at a historical crossroads: in order to remain a leader in the global market, it needs to develop a forward-looking business model reconciling competitiveness with sustainability. This requires a “smart” approach to legislation, the use of innovative technologies, and a changing consumer behaviour, together with strong global environmental and social commitments.

The Porto Convention, co-organised by EURATEX and ATP, will look at how companies can anticipate the new European regulatory framework, embrace innovation, and develop a business model where sustainability becomes a source of competitiveness and growth.
