10 measures for a Circular Textiles Industry

Livre blanc 2022

Publication Date:

Country: 
France

Language for original content:

The textile industry’s figures are clear: of the 648 000 tons of textiles placed on the market each year in France, only 38% are collected for recycling.

The 10 proposals set out in this white paper (in French) seek to meet three objectives. The first consists of building the Extended Producer Responsibility approach around environmental benefits. The second is to support the development of a sustainable textile and footwear recycling industry. The last is to meet the legitimate expectations of transparency and traceability. The proposals aim to achieve these objectives in the context of the three key steps in a product’s lifecycle: (1) fabrication, (2) consumption, and (3) regeneration.

    Foodvalley NL Upcycling Community: a platform devoted to food upcycling

    Foodvalley

    There are major benefits to be gained from residual flows that are used to a limited extent in food production. By scaling up the use of residual streams for human consumption, we can take a big step towards a circular sustainable food system. But because these residual flows require pioneering work in cooperation with various organisations, an impactful chain transition is not realised.

    To accelerate the transition of upcycling of residual streams towards food, co-creation and rock-solid cooperation are needed. The Upcycling Community started by Foodvalley NL is a safe environment where organisations can develop their ideas together and gain inspiration from each other. With the right support and a mix of cross-sector organisations, we make a circular impact.

    The framework for inclusive circular trade is designed to help guide trade and trade-related circular economy and development policies, practices and agreements to ensure these all work towards a shared goal of an inclusive circular economy.

    This paper sets out a framework for inclusive circular trade, intended to enable a pathway in which circular trade helps to promote fair, inclusive and circular societies. The framework was developed through the work of an alliance of organizations spanning Africa, Southeast Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Europe.
