David Allo, Sustainability Manager of the Confederation of the Textile Industry (Texfor): “Spanish textile manufacturers have been betting on sustainability long before the word out of common use, it was always indispensable for our evolution and survival”.

Dolores Naharro, from the Circular Economy Club: “Circular economy practices are not only beneficial for people and the environment but also offer cost savings and efficiencies for all companies and organizations.

Pedro Pablo García May, deputy director of EFE Verde: “The media and journalists must tell society what companies are advancing in this direction and thus generate awareness and lay the foundations for a sustainable future.
