We are thrilled to share that the Network for Certification and Conservation of Forest (NCCF) participated in Bharat Tex 2024 at Yashobhoomi, Dwarka, Delhi, and hosted a Master class on “Forest, Fashion, and Certification for Sustainable Development Goals.” 🌳

The master class featured insightful talks from distinguished speakers:

Ms. Abhilasha Shrivastava, Manager at NCCF, focused her talk on the global campaign of “Forest for Fashion,” urging brands and retailers to adopt 25% raw material from certified forest sources by 2025 and reduce the carbon footprint of the fashion industry.
Their talks shed light on the crucial intersection of forests, fashion, and certification in achieving sustainable development goals. 🌿👕

Thank you to everyone who attended and contributed to the success of our master class. 🙏 Let’s continue collaborating and drive positive change for a more sustainable world.

As the fashion industry stands as a 2.5 trillion-dollar economy and employs 75 million people worldwide, it’s crucial to recognize its major contribution of 10% to global carbon emissions. Given these staggering figures, the fashion industry must take decisive steps to reduce its carbon footprint and other environmental impacts, particularly through the procurement of man-made cellulosic fibers (MMCF) from certified sources.

The ‘Forests for Fashion’ initiative serves as a beacon of hope, uniting the efforts of numerous designers who are committed to incorporating forest-derived materials into their creations. This initiative underscores the importance of sustainable sourcing in the fashion industry’s supply chain.
We call upon fashion industry stakeholders, including brands and retailers, to embrace this initiative by pledging to adopt a minimum of 25% raw materials sourced from sustainably managed forests. These materials should be certified by recognized standards such as PEFC-NCCF SFM, CoC, and ToF, ensuring adherence to rigorous sustainability criteria.
Together, let’s embark on this journey towards a more sustainable fashion industry, one that respects and protects our precious natural resources. By making responsible choices in material sourcing, we can pave the way for a brighter, greener future for fashion.”
