RGT Italia Holds Clothing Sustainability Workshop

Sadie Keljikian, Express Trade Capital, Inc.

RGT Italia recently organized a workshop entitled, “Sustainability and Product Development,” in an effort to encourage environmentally conscious practices in garment manufacturing. RGT, a Padua-based subsidiary of the German manufacturing group Bock & Partner, hosted approximately 70 representatives from Italian and German fashion and sportswear makers including Hugo Boss, Marc’O Polo, and René Lezard.

The workshop touched on all aspects of the garment manufacturing process with discussions on topics ranging from fashion schools to fabric manufacturers, chemical substance producers and sewing yarn makers.

The event was particularly well-timed given European manufacturers scramble to updated their eco-policies in light of the recent Volkswagen scandal.

Dietrich Bock, CEO of Bock & Partner, was satisfied with the response to the workshop, saying “I’m sure that product managers and designers who participated in the event could get a wider perspective about what sustainability, renewability and eco-friendly production processes mean. And we are ready to face all future challenges.”
