TextileGenesis traceability platform is increasing by 500,000 per cent, SeaChange Technologies’ disruptive wastewater solution is heading into commercial trials, and Reverse Resources are tracing 1,000 tons of textile waste per month.
Professor Johan Rockström and H&M Foundation Strategy Lead Christiane Dolva on the meaning of a planet positive future and the means required to achieve it.
Meet the five winners of Techtonic – Innovations in Circular Economy. These innovators can move the needle within waste management, towards a circular economy in India, while enabling social inclusion for informal waste pickers.
Innovators, experts, and industry decision-makers gathered at the Planet Positive Perspectives exhibit to share knowledge, launch collaborations and take action for a sustainable fashion future.
To turn the fashion industry planet positive, innovation must succeed. During the Accelerator bootcamp week, 24 brilliant teams received invaluable coaching from the experts and leaders that can help them scale. We’ve listed the key learnings from the week.
Werewool designs textile fibres with the desired features, like colour and water repellency, built-in on DNA level. Successfully eliminating the need to coat, dye or process a finished fabric. Winning the GCA 2020 fast-tracked their journey from scientific prototype to start-up.
The GCA Impact Accelerator bootcamp week starts now.
Stockholm, 23 May, 2022 – The Planet First program initiated by the H&M Foundation and world-renowned The Hong Kong Research Institute of Textiles and Apparel (HKRITA) has recently resulted in an innovation that could potentially be a game-changer when it comes to fighting global CO2 emissions. The Carbon Looper project – clothing that captures CO2 from the air and then releases it as nutrition for plants – is now being tested by the restaurant staff at Fotografiska Stockholm.
TextileGenesis traces sustainable fibres through transparent and reliable blockchain technology. Their GCA 2020 win has accelerated their development and helped apply their platform to more than 1,500 supply chains across the fashion industry.
