Webinar: 12th of October 2021, 11:00-13:00 CEST
Textiles are a priority sector in the EU’s plans to shift to a climate-neutral, circular economy, where products are designed to be more durable, reusable, repairable, recyclable, and energy-efficient.
As part of these efforts, the European Commission is planning to introduce new sustainability labelling for clothing. This aims to empower consumers when making purchasing decisions and positively influence the drive for a sustainable economy.
But what if the labelling system being proposed doesn’t account for key environmental impacts?
