WRAP introduced a new ground-breaking, expert-led initiative Textiles 2030 reduce the industry’s carbon footprint by 50%

textiles2030Signatories to the Textiles 2030 10-year voluntary agreement, sponsored by non-profit organization Wrap (Waste and Resources Action Program), have pledged to reduce the industry’s carbon footprint by 50% and the aggregate water footprint of new products produced by 30% by 2030.

Signatories also agreed to focus on three activities, according to Drapers Online: agreeing on good practice guidelines that focus on durability, recyclability, and waste minimization; developing circular business models; and forming partnerships to supply and utilise recycled fibers for new goods.

Textiles 2030 is WRAP’s new ground-breaking, expert-led initiative, harnessing the knowledge and expertise of UK leaders in sustainability to accelerate the whole fashion and textiles industry’s move towards circularity and system change in the UK.

The new voluntary agreement builds on the learning and success of the Sustainable Clothing Action Plan (SCAP 2020) and aims to engage the majority of UK fashion and textiles organisations in collaborative climate action. Leading businesses for sustainability across clothing retail, supply, reuse and recycling, including SCAP signatories, will collaborate as ‘Partners’ on fast-tracking the UK Circular Economy.  Other fashion and textiles Brands and Retailers can sign up as ‘Member’ signatories and benefit from WRAP’s support in achieving a ready-made, science-based, robust climate strategy and measuring their GHG emissions. Innovators, Ground-breakers, Researchers, Academics and Industry membership groups can join as Affiliates to contribute their expertise.  

Textiles 2030 is a voluntary agreement, to be funded by its signatories and government. Signatories will collaborate on carbon, water and circular textile targets, and also contribute to national policy discussions with UK governments to shape Extended Producer Responsibility  and other critical regulatory developments.
