As director of the Swedish Textile Initiative for Climate Change, I believe the proposed EU Textile Strategy may be the industry’s best and only chance to transform the apparel industry at the pace and scale required to help mitigate climate change.

When it comes to climate change, we are in a state of emergency. According to the latest studies, the apparel and textile industries are responsible approximately three to seven per cent of all greenhouse gas emissions (GHG).

An European Environment Agency report published in 2019, says textiles are the fifth highest-pressure category for GHG emissions from consumption in Europe, with most of the apparel industry’s emissions generated from resource extraction and production via fibre and material extraction and production, yarn production, fabric preparation and wet processing.
