Something has to change – the past years and now the effects of the Corona pandemic in particular have made that clear. Many customers are demanding transparency and authenticity. But how can that be realised along textile supply chains? More than 20 speakers from the sustainability scene discussed the issue from 18th to 22nd January 2021 at the digital Neonyt on Air event. Speakers included Green Button (Grüner Knopf) “presenting partners” Hess Natur and Oeko-Tex. “For most people and probably most of you, 2020 was a tough year. But it was also a year with some bright spots, knowing we all have the same goal of creating a better tomorrow! Let's continue to strengthen partnerships with each other, because innovations and ideas, big or small, lead us to be better in our doing,” said Andrea Sibylle Ebinger, CEO of Hessnatur, who opened the conference on 18th January with a key-note speech.
“Together. Now and here.” was the motto of this year’s Neonyt winter edition. The numbers show that the members of the Neonyt community are there for each other also in hard times: some 24,000 international followers from politics, IT and the lifestyle business accessed the online event’s content more than 120,000 times during Berlin Fashion Week. “The reach of Neonyt on Air, which goes way beyond its actual community, has shown us the importance of partnerships and the need for collaboration and that together we will find a way to make sustainability a universal topic – in society and across all industries,” says Neonyt Show Director Thimo Schwenzfeier.
Whether it was the supply chain law or the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations – the numerous key-note speeches, panel discussions and interviews on more transparency and sustainability in the textile and fashion industries can still be accessed at Neonyt’s Instagram account.
