SiLC23 Sponsor Spotlight: How TDP Textiles is fully committed to making positive change

Ahead of SiLC23 on 8 November, catches up with some of the high profile sponsors. Today, TDP and how it is working with suppliers, retailers and licensing partners to make improvements – large and small – wherever possible.

We are at the dawning of a new age for licensing. With legislation coming at us from all angles, the landscape upon which business operates is about to shift dramatically. The $340bn global licensing industry has the chance to be leading that sustainable transition from the front, we just have to seize it.

That opportunity sits at the heart of this year’s Sustainability in Licensing Conference – the brand licensing and consumer product industries’ only event dedicated to collective sustainable development – as it makes its return to the Royal Geographical Society in London on Wednesday, 8 November 2023.

Of course, this year’s Sustainability in Licensing Conference wouldn’t go ahead without the support of the industry, our Products of Change community and our honourable list of sponsors, all of which are flying the flag for sector sustainable development while taking great strides themselves.

Let’s meet a few. Today: TDP Textiles.

TDP Textiles’ journey with sustainability started a few years ago when among the earliest steps the business took was its conversion in 2021 and 2022 to electric cars. Today, all company cars are electric. TDP is now fully-committed to making positive change by working with suppliers, retailers, and licensing partners to make improvements large and small where it is possible.

Back in spring 2020, TDP successful converted its Indian office and factory to become fully solar-powered, a switch that accounted for some major reductions of the business’ greenhouse gas emissions.

Ambitions for 2024: For the coming year, the focus of TDP Textiles is to drive plastic out and reduce all waste within its product packaging. The business is conscious of and striving to meet the demands of a new generation of consumers now more environmentally engaged and with higher expectations of sustainability in the brands and products they buy into.

Jasmine North, licensing coordinator, TDP Textiles: “We are delighted to continue to support Products of Change and SILC 2023, as this is not a problem that requires a one-shot fix, it’s an ongoing piece of work which requires constant attention and improvements. SiLC is the focal point for all stake holders to see best practise and the growing bank of resources that Products of Change offers.”
