Fashion for Good Project: Tracing sustainable viscose from fiber to finish | Instant News

Facilitated by Fashion for Good, the Viscose Traceability project is a collaboration with a leading brand BEST SELLING and Dry which will provide eight garment models to be tracked for trials, with fiber sourced from three of the leading sustainable viscose producers. TextileGenesisTM will provide their blockchain solution and platform to trace the origins of viscose used in garments along the supply chains of the two participating brands. This supply chain, which consists of spinners, weavers, knitters, dyes and garment makers, spans a total of eight countries to reflect real-world complexity and various supply chain scenarios to fully test the flexibility and scalability of the platform.

The project builds on lessons learned from the Organic Cotton Tracing Pilot 2019, which investigated the technical feasibility of blockchain and physical tracers using organic cotton as the primary fiber. The Viscose Traceability Project’s ambition goes beyond technical viability, however, it goes a step further to explore, in detail, the next steps needed to make a traceability solution not only effective, but also scalable at a commercial level across sectors.

After demonstrating the technological feasibility of the TextileGenesisTM platform and its ability to integrate chain of custody certification in previous pilots, this project will focus on demonstrating the global application viability of solutions across the viscose supply chain. Success will be measured by the flexibility of the solution – being able to operate across multiple supply chains; solution interoperability – collecting data from multiple platforms into a single system; and scalability – global implementation across multiple brands, fiber producers and supply chains.

The scope of this project focuses on tracing viscose fibers from production to retail. To do so, the project leverages the impact work of the CanopyStyle initiative to remove ancient and endangered forest fibers from viscose production and to support the adoption of forest certification standards such as FSC, to address traceability at the beginning of the supply chain from forests to viscose fiber production.

Three fiber producers, Lenzing, ENKA and Tangshan Sanyou were selected for their “Green Shirt” ratings on the Canopy Hot Button Report and reputation as leaders in the field of sustainability. Through this consortium platform, Canopy and TextileGenesisTM have further developed their partnership: the TextileGenesisTM platform upgrade will integrate Canopy hot button rating data and the next-generation line of viscose that will not only be available for participating pilot brands, but also for all other brands using the platform. .

Following the completion of the pilot by the end of 2021, a joint report detailing the main findings and best practices will be shared publicly.

The opposition attack against the Army is unprecedented in Pakistani history: PM Imran | Instant News

Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday said it was unprecedented how opposition parties had attacked the armed forces of these countries and had used the same language that India’s propaganda machine uses against Pakistan’s armed forces.

“The way the Pakistani political opposition is attacking the Pakistani Army, this is unprecedented in our history.

The prime minister addressed a meeting in Chakwal after laying the foundation stones of projects in the district. The project includes a university for the district, a 500-bed hospital, a ring road and a school. The project is estimated to cost around Rs15 billion.

Refer to the latest report based in Brussels EU Disinfolab With regard to India’s massive disinformation campaign against Pakistan using fake news websites and NGOs, the prime minister said the aim of the campaign was to present a negative image of the country.

“The aim is to present Pakistan with a negative outlook in front of the world and to illustrate that there is chaos so that no investment is coming into the country.”

He added that the Pakistani Army was also targeted in a campaign by India, with the aim of portraying it as a “rogue army or terrorist”.

The prime minister said fake news sites were also promoting the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM). “This is the first time in Pakistan’s history that the opposition has targeted the Army in this way. There have been no previous examples of this.”

Imran dismissed opposition claims that the establishment of the state played a role in cheating in previous elections. He asked the opposition if they had approached the court or the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP). “Will you go to Parliament and discuss this issue?”

Criticizing the opposition, Imran said the country knew that opposition party leaders plundered the country for the past 30 years.

He also referred to articles and news in foreign publications detailing the parties’ corruption. Maintaining that the opposition attacks state institutions to protect their ill-earned wealth, he said that there has never been an “extremist, totalitarian, racist and anti-Muslim” political party in power in India.

“This is when we need them [Army] more than ever. I have never seen the opposition try to undermine a country like this just to get an NRO. “He added that India is also involved in terrorism in Balochistan.

“If any government gives them an NRO it will be the worst thing anyone can do to Pakistan.”

The prime minister went on and said that democracy holds its leaders accountable and said people should ask Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Maryam Nawaz what their qualifications are to lead their political party. “If someone asked them what their work experience was they would say their father was the most corrupt person in Pakistan. This is their qualification. They haven’t worked an hour in their life and are here to run the country.”

Referring to the projects on which it is based, the prime minister said the universities and schools would produce talented young people from the region and give Chakwal people the opportunity to improve their prospects through education.

Imran promised to continue to support the project and invite the community to take advantage of this opportunity.

Earlier, Information and Broadcasting Minister Shibli Faraz compared PDM to ‘Indian Chronicles’ – a report released by EU DisinfoLab.

“On the one hand the external enemy is committing the crime of spreading false information against Pakistan through the Indian Chronicles and on the other the PDM is spreading frustration among the people by committing lies,” he said.

According to an investigation by EU Disinfolab, a coordinated influence operation, to malign Pakistan’s reputation, has been led by the New Delhi-based Srivastava Group and strengthened by Asia News International (ANI), an Indian news agency, for the past 15 years.

The mission of this operation is to discredit countries in conflict with India in the region, particularly Pakistan as well as China to some extent. In the long term, the campaign aims to strengthen India’s global perceptions, which will ultimately allow New Delhi to gain more support from international agencies such as the EU and the United Nations.
