Check our second report aimed at supporting industry players in high-impact Irish sectors to transition to a circular economy

CIRCULÉIRE has made the Fashion and Textiles Good Practice Sectoral Guide publicly available.

The Guide is intended for those involved in the apparel and textiles industry, including economic operators in the value chain – such as retailers – and policymakers.

The textile industry is often described as one of the most polluting and resource-intensive industries in the world. It represents significant environmental and climate pressures in every phase of its lifecycle from the production of fibres and textile products to distribution and retail, use of textiles, collection, sorting and recycling, and final waste management.

In a circular fashion and textiles economy, products are designed with resource efficiency, non-toxicity, biodegradability, and recyclability and reuse in mind.

Our guide:

  • Provides industry stakeholders with an overview of industry-led circular innovations that are shaping the fashion and textiles sector domestically and in other parts of the world.
  • Profiles 12 circular innovations, which range in maturity and technological readiness level from earlier-stage solutions, and more mature, market-ready and fully commercialised circular innovations.
  • Highlights the opportunities to circularise textiles value chains in Ireland.

CIRCULÉIRE Circular Fashion & Textiles Good Practice Sectoral Guide is part of a series of reports produced by CIRCULÉIRE targeted at Irish industry players in sectors deemed strategically important to supporting Ireland’s transition to a circular economy.
