Sustainability, in the Indian textile and apparel industry, is one of the most discussed subjects, but at the same time, it is surrounded by several questions and confusions too. Even today, the majority of owners in the industry are not very well familiar with the concept of sustainability. They haven’t even heard of the term ‘Sustainable Development Goals’ (SDGs), which is a collection of 17 global goals, designed to be a ‘blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all’. The SDGs were set in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly, and are intended to be achieved by the year 2030.

Many owners and professionals from the industry, despite being part of sustainability, are also confused about raw materials.

Majority of consumers and experts from the industry criticise fast fashion. Slow fashion (less production) can impact the growth of the industry, and in fact, will have fewer opportunities for workers. The issue of a living wage has already been struggling for decades, while there are a lot of cases where workers are not treated well. Is ‘Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Circular Economy’ the answer to all such things? Moreover, companies have to be financially sustainable too.
