The EU opened the roadmap on strategy for sustainable textiles up for feedback for 4 weeks (05 January 2021 – 02 February 2021).
This strategy will help the EU shift to a climate-neutral, circular economy where products are designed to be more durable, reusable, repairable, recyclable and energy-efficient.
It aims to ensure that the textile industry recovers from the COVID-19 crisis in a sustainable way by:
- making it more competitive
- applying circular economy principles to production, products, consumption, waste management and secondary raw materials
- directing investment, research and innovation.
Feedback will be taken into account for further development and fine tuning of the initiative. The Commission will summarise the input received in a synopsis report explaining how the input will be taken on board and, if applicable, why certain suggestions can’t be taken up.
