Country: 
Austria, Germany

Scope:

An increasing number of stakeholders in the textile and garment sector are attempting to reduce their environmental impact, with circularity being one of the industry’s ultimate goals. One of the significant challenges is textile waste, of which less than 1% is recycled.

While recycling is just one aspect of circularity, it is crucial for achieving the sector’s environmental goals. In order to identify the potential for circular business practices and fabric recycling, it is important to understand the availability and usage of post-industrial and post-consumer textile waste in production and consumption countries.

During this webinar, participants will get a glimpse of ongoing initiatives and practical examples.
