Report

Increasing the utilization of clothing is a daunting challenge in a world of ‘fast fashion’ and accelerating consumption. Many companies have responded to market demand and competition by reinforcing and enabling ‘fast fashion’ trends. 

But simply selling more new clothes to meet demand in high consuming and fast-growing economies is unsustainable. It puts more pressure on natural and human resources that are already over exploited. It will mean even greater negative impacts on the environment and society. 

Initiatives:
  • Textiles
  • Fibre & fabric selection
  • Consumer behaviour
  • Re-use & recycling
  • Design for extending clothing life
  • SCAP 2020
  • Textiles 2030
