Join our live webinar to learn about one of the major issues facing the fashion and textile industry today – fiber fragmentation.

The unintentional release of microplastics from textiles and the associated pollution of the natural environment is an issue that is being addressed by manufacturers, retailers, non-governmental organizations and regulatory authorities. It is also high on the agenda for consumers who want to buy clothing products that are more sustainable and better for the environment.

The fashion industry has a huge environmental impact and therefore has a major role to play in fostering sustainability and environmental awareness.

In this webinar, an SGS expert will share insights on the current issue as well as what manufacturers and retailers can do to contribute to a more sustainable future.


This one hour webinar will cover:

  • Environmental concerns and awareness
  • Industry engagement
  • Definitions of microfiber and fiber fragmentation
  • Evaluation methods developed by different organizations
  • The Microfibre Consortium (TMC) Microfibre 2030 Commitment
  • SGS engagement in fiber fragmentation
  • SGS fiberfastness testing services
  • Regulation updates
  • Q&A

Target Audience

This webinar is aimed at quality and regulatory compliance professionals in the fashion and textile industry.
