Circular Economy Action Agenda: Textiles

Textiles have long been an integral part of our daily lives and society, providing employment for hundreds of millions of people and creating tremendous economic value. However, the industry’s significant ecological footprint, as well as its health and social risks, have come under increasing scrutiny. There is urgent need for transformation.

How can circular strategies contribute? Three objectives have been formulated based on converging visions of a circular economy for textiles: inputs for textiles are safe and recycled or renewable; textiles are kept in use for longer; and textiles are recyclable and recycled at end-of-use.
Researchers have already documented the challenges from the textiles value chain today, the need for a transition to a circular economy, and the systemic change required for the transition. This report builds on the existing literature to identify the actions needed for a better and faster transition to a circular economy for textiles. Each report has four main chapters: Objectives, Impact, Barriers, and Actions
