Our Bureau Coimbatore | Updated on June 06, 2020

Indian Texpreneurs’ Federation (ITF) has mooted a project titled “India for SURE” (Stable, sUstainable, Reliable, Ethical), placing sustainability at its core, and the textile sector in Tamil Nadu as the base.

ITF Convenor Prabhu Damodharan said that the federation has managed to create a collective interest in this brand positioning initiative, as its members, numbering around 500 were across the entire textile value chain including integrated and standalone spinning, weaving, processing, home textiles and apparel companies.

“We now want to prepare a road-map to facilitate a Sustainability Accord – a first of its kind cluster level commitment for sustainability.

“We are in the process of developing a Sustainability Blueprint, which will showcase the achievements and strengths of our member companies on sustainability. This would not only create visibility for the textile sector in TN, but create trust in the “SURE” model as it would be substantiated by authentic data,” Damodharan said.

The Blueprint would be ready in a month, he said

The federation has launched a Data Collection initiative for quantifying its member’s strengths in sustainability
