Lutz Walter discusses fashion's greenhouse gas emissions at Global Fashion Summit

On Thursday 23 May, Textile ETP Secretary General Lutz Walter took the stage at the Global Fashion Agenda's Global Fashion Summit in Copenhagen, Denmark, participating in the 'Decarbonisation Data: Fashion’s Emissions' panel.

Lutz Walter focused his speech on the critical issue of fashion's greenhouse gas emissions, exploring actionable strategies to reduce our industry's roughly 2% contribution to global emissions. He highlighted that many effective measures are not only straightforward but also offer positive returns on investment. These initiatives can pave the way for tackling more complex challenges, such as achieving full electrification of all textile processes.

Overall, the panel, moderated by Amy Nguyen from Sustainable & Social, and featuring Nicolaj Reffstrup from Ganni A/S, GRUPPO FLORENCE's Attila Kiss, Andrés Bragagnini from Apparel Impact Institute, and WWF's Payal Luthra, emphasized the importance of bridging data gaps and aligning the sector on GHG figures and reduction methods, highlighting the immense potential for every textile and fashion business to make a significant impact.
