BRUSSELS – The European Environmental Bureau (EEB) – a network of around 170 organisations – has published a new report which outlines measures the fashion and textile sectors would need to consider if they’re to truly turn the tide on climate change.  

Authored by the University of Technology Sydney’s Institute for Sustainable Futures, the Centre for Innovation Research at Lund University, and Erasmus University Rotterdam, the paper suggests current industry initiatives continue to put economic opportunities before environmental concerns.  

“At the core of many of these business models are initiatives that are commendable but do not fundamentally overhaul the industry,” the organisations say. “These changes do not meaningfully allow the fashion and textile sectors to decrease material throughput and the needless disposal of clothing and textiles.”
