This paper deals with the issues of the integration of sustainable development and technical efficiency improvements in the textile industry of India. Given that the textile industry is one of the most significant sectors of the Indian economy and, at the same time, one of the most environmentally detrimental industries as it requires massive consumption of water and energy, generates considerable volumes of chemical garbage, and pollutes the environment with greenhouse emissions, various innovative approaches are implemented. In particular, the use of materials, water-saving systems, and energy in the form of renewable sources, while some even apply the most advanced technologies such as digital printing and automation, enabling limited waste and energy use. Moreover, some companies are certified and are thus encouraged to adopt these practices further. The study demonstrates that there is indeed substantial progress, although the implementation speed and rate vary drastically between different scales. The paper concludes with recommendations for stakeholders to foster a more sustainable and efficient textile industry in India. emphasising the need for an integrated approach that combines technological innovation with environmental stewardship.
