Reports, evidence, guidance, cases studies
Building a sustainable system in fashion and textiles
WRAP's evidence, reports, guidance, case studies and tools can help you transform your business.
Whether you are you are looking to create a business case for change or improve the durability of your garments, we have the expertise and resources to help and a track record of delivering systemic change throughout supply chains.
Sustainable clothing design
WRAP research shows that extending the life of clothes by nine extra months can reduce carbon, water and waste footprints by around 4-10% each. Find out more about our research and guidance on improving the durability of clothing during both the design and production process.
Guidance on fibre and fabric selection
Using WRAP’s expert, independent-research your organisation can find new and innovative sources of fabrics and develop procurement frameworks to create a more sustainable supply chain. Fibre selection is key to improving sustainability, reducing carbon, water and waste footprints and increasing the useable life of a piece of clothing.
Guidance on re-use and recycling
Using WRAP’s independent research, re-use organisations, reprocessors and local authorities can learn how to build effective partnerships, gain advice on good practice and implement schemes to increase collection rates.
Sustainable clothing business models
New business models offer a shift away from the traditional ‘linear’ approach to a ‘circular’ model. For clothing companies to be competitive in 2030 they will have to adapt. Our reports and case studies offer the evidence and support the business case for a shift to meet demands of customers without damaging communities and the environment.
Guidance on consumer behaviour
By using WRAP’s research, organisations can gain consumer feedback into sustainable products in the clothing industry and gain insight on how to market more durable, sustainable and less resource intensive products to consumers.
