Transforming the fashion and textiles industry for people and planet.
Textiles 2030 is the UK’s leading voluntary initiative supporting businesses and organisations within the fashion and textiles industry to transition to more sustainable and circular practices by the end of the decade.
Why is Textiles 2030 needed?
A collaborative approach.
No single organisation can overcome the industry’s challenges alone, through Textiles 2030 the entire fashion and textiles value chain comes together in collaborative climate action.

Priority action areas.
To meet the Textiles 2030 targets and transition to a circular economy, we must transform the way the UK produces, buys, uses and disposes of clothing and textiles.
Our signatories’ efforts are guided by three priority action areas in the Textiles 2030 Circularity Roadmap, with consumer behaviour change at the heart of each.
Designing for circularity
Designing products that are durable and recyclable, use recycled content and minimise waste.
Implementing circular business models
Piloting and scaling-up new, innovative business models that extend product lifetimes.
Closing the loop on materials
Accelerating the commercialisation of fibre-to-fibre recycling in the UK.
Encouraging consumer behaviour change
Helping consumers understand how to make sustainable lifestyle changes.
