In March 2022, the European Commission released its “EU strategy for sustainable and circular textiles” in the Circular Economy Action Plan framework. The strategy aims at setting a framework to boost the competitiveness, sustainability and resilience of the EU textile sector.
Six months after its release, we will unpack the Textiles Strategy and views on the implementation from various political levels. Come and hear from EU policymakers, including the European Commission, European Parliament, EESC and frontrunner national representatives, how they envisage the implementation and the next steps of sustainable and circular textiles.
The workshop will be the opportunity to discuss the strategy’s implementation based on its vision for the current textile industry. This vision seeks to offer longer-lasting, recyclable, affordable, and high-quality textile products while developing economically profitable re-use and repair services in a competitive, resilient, and innovative textiles sector.
