BRUSSELS - The Euratex textile industry trade body has expressed its disappointment that the European Union's (EU) proposed Ecodesign for Sustainable Products Regulation (ESPR) prioritises the textile industry for special treatment.

ESPR, this week approved by the European Parliament, would require all products to be made to last longer and be easier to repair, upgrade and recycle but includes special measures for priority areas, including a ban on the destruction of unsold textile products.

Euratex (European Apparel and Textile Confederation), which claims to represent the interests of 160,000 European textile companies, said it believed the regulation should be based on a more "inclusive and feasible" approach.
