“Sustainability is a way of living and acting, a matter of conscience, a commitment to future generations, a new way to create, produce, distribute and sell.” (Ercole Botto Poala)


The Sustainability Project of the 27th edition of Milano Unica 


Sustainability is an ineluctable choice for the textile industry, the world’s second largest industry in terms of carbon footprint. This is a key challenge, that grows hand in hand along with an important opportunity for development in an increasingly demanding and responsible market.


As a trade show that represents the excellence of Italian textiles and accessories, Milano Unica is engaged in promoting the dialogue of exhibiting companies around the subject of sustainable production.


In October 2017, Milano Unica presented the SS 2019 Trends and the theme “Save the Planet”, sending a clear message to businesses to engage in innovation and responsible manufacturing and develop a vision for the future. And in February 2018, for the first time, Milano Unica presented a focus dedicated to sustainability with fabrics and accessories ensuing from certified sustainable processes and materials.


In the July 2018 edition, the Sustainability Project has reached an extraordinary result in terms of participation and quality of the products presented, with over 120 enterprises presenting over 750 sample products. The Sustainability Catalogue, with information and details  about exhibitors and the sample products presented is available for download here
