    Circular business models offer a clear pathway for disrupting the fashion and textile industry’s linear operating model.

    By increasing the number of times an item is worn and keeping clothing in circulation for as long as possible through services like rental, repair, resale and upcycling, the industry can replace the need for new clothing production and avoid the associated environmental impacts, while remaining profitable and serving the needs of a growing consumer population.

    • Textiles 2030
