Written by Brett Mathews

HONG KONG - New analysis into the CSR reporting of leading apparel brands suggests not enough is being done to close the loop in textiles. Analysts in China looked at the reporting of actions towards closing the loop by ten leading apparel businesses, including Gap Inc, H&M, Kering and Esquel, and concluded that there is "not enough movement towards going circular, particularly as production & growth demands continue to rise." One example from the findings is that H&M's products with recycled fabric comprised just 0.2 per cent of total output in 2014 - down from 0.3 per cent in 2013.
