On November 16th the Swedish Textile Service Association will be holding its Autumn meeting at the four-star ProfilHotels Halmstad Plaza, in the city of Halmstad.
“This will be the first time that the association will be joined by The Danish Textile Services Association (BVT),” said Daniel Karrholt, CEO, Swedish Textile Association. “We are nearly at the half point for our Erasmus+ project promoting sustainability.”
The two associations are developing supplementary educational material connected to the Scandinavian Quality Control models that will help achieve sustainable methods in the textile services industry.
”At the heart of the Erasmus+ project are inclusion and diversity. It highlights accessibility and inclusion for people with fewer opportunities to be involved in all project activities,” says Karrholt. ”The project also involves the environment and climate change since the majority of the requirements in the authorisation controls are related to environment/sustainability. By giving employees access to information about why the quality requirements in the process are important, and develop their skills on how to save resources, reduce energy etc. they can become true agents of change.”
The project, which is co-funded by the European Union via Erasmus+ started on January 1, 2023 and will proceed till December 31,2024.
The focus of the meeting will be to engage the delegates in the process and get their interaction in the way forward.
