Circularity is a necessary solution to minimise the use of finite resources, but it demands a unified approach. To drive change and accelerate collaboration, EURATEX, Federation of the European Sporting Goods Industry, Global Fashion Agenda, International Apparel Federation and Sustainable Apparel Coalition released the Manifesto to Deliver a Circular Economy in Textiles ahead of Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2019.
At the end of last month, the Policy Hub for Circular Economy in the Apparel and Footwear Industry was officially launched by Sustainable Apparel Coalition, Federation of the European Sporting Goods Industry, Global Fashion Agenda and their members.
The Policy Hub will build on the manifesto to help develop an effective policy framework for circular economy in the industry. Kicking off its work in June 2019, the hub will come up with an aligned proposition on policies for circularity with inputs from a range of stakeholders engaging in the topic to complement and inform its work. In autumn, when the newly elected and appointed EU officials are in office, the Policy Hub will seek to engage in dialogue with the new policymakers and to bring the industry's position forward.
