SGS, the leading testing, inspection and certification company, is inviting quality and regulatory compliance professionals to a free webinar, Fibre Fragmentation in the Fashion and Textile Industry, on June 16 2022 at 10am GMT.

The unintentional release of microplastics from textiles and the associated pollution of the natural environment is an issue that is being addressed by manufacturers, retailers, non-governmental organisations and regulatory authorities, SGS says. It is also high on the agenda for the modern consumer wishing to purchase products that are more sustainable and better for the environment.

The fashion industry has a huge environmental impact and therefore has a major role to play in fostering sustainability and environmental awareness.

In the one hour webinar SGS global technical manager Steve McDonald will discuss the major concerns, present an update on regulations and the Microfibre Consortium 2030 Commitment, and conclude with SGS services to help quality and regulatory professionals address this issue.

Registration can be made here.
