NCSU's College Of Textiles, ITT Establish Sustainability Council

Raleigh, N.C.-based North Carolina State University’s (NCSU’s) College of Textiles and the Institute of Textile Technology (ITT) have founded the Council for Economically Sustainable Textile and Apparel Business (CESTAB) to provide information, analyses and resources to foster sustainable social, economic and environmental practices within the global textile supply chain.

“Sustainability has become one of the most pressing issues facing the textile industry,” said Allen E. Gant Jr., president and CEO, Glen Raven Inc., and chairman of ITT’s Board of Trustees. “ The institute, in collaboration with the College of Textiles, is endeavoring to provide much needed leadership for the textile industry in addressing sustainability issues in a scientific and consistent manner.” 

CESTAB will provide resources to textile supply chain participants with the aim of providing a uniform approach to addressing sustainability issues; conduct scientific research to fill in gaps in the textile sustainability knowledge base; and offer and foster undergraduate, graduate and continuing education programs for textile supply chain participants and the public.
