Risha Roy, head, sustainable fashion and textile design, School of Design, Anant National University expects initiation of an incentivised scheme for the textile and apparel industry that is designed to address the growing demand for sustainable practices in the industry. “They could include government funding for research and development of new technologies and innovation that address the sustainability requirements in the industry. The key area to focus currently would be natural resource management -reduction of consumption pre-and post-production, reduce the use of toxic chemicals, promotion of regenerative fibers, and develop solutions for the end-of-life management of products,” he said. Additionally, the scheme could also focus on promoting traceability of inputs in the industry. This would allow for better monitoring of the supply chain and help to ensure that the materials and products used in the industry are sustainably sourced. Overall, this incentivizing scheme would help to encourage the textile and apparel industry to adopt more sustainable practices, which would have a positive impact on the environment and society as a whole, as per Roy.
