The year 2020 has frequently been depicted in films and books as a futuristic era of fashion, a time when uniforms like silver jumpsuits would be the norm. Tie-dye sweatsuits, however, was more like it.
In a year that forced the fashion industry to press pause and reevaluate the seasonality and the relevancy of their collections, quarantined consumers became the trendsetters. Clothes that addressed their immediate needs as well as their emotions during an unprecedented time became the trends that would ultimately shape fashion in 2020.
1 July (Nonwovens Industry Magazine) – Sateri has signed the Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action, becoming the first viscose producer in China to support this global fashion agenda. An initiative convened by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), this charter calls on the fashion industry to support the goals of the Paris Agreement in limiting global temperature rise to well below two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, by achieving 30% aggregate reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2030, including the supply chain.
Niclas Svenningsen, manager of Global Climate Action, UNFCCC, says, “UNFCCC is excited to have Sateri joining the Fashion Industry Charter on Climate Action and committing towards global climate action as the first Chinese viscose producer to do so. We hope that it will inspire more textile companies from China to join and take action.”
