BRUSSELS – The European Parliament and the Council of EU member states have reached a preliminary deal on the proposed Ecodesign for Sustainable Products Regulation (ESPR), in a bid to improve the circularity of consumer goods such as textiles sold on the EU market.

The agreement, which was reached on 4th December, supersedes existing 2009 regulations and comes with an expanded scope that at the moment includes a ban on the destruction of unsold textiles. However, what is important for the textile sector is whether recycling is considered destruction or not.

For that, the final text will be required before writing into law – although these moves are usually rubber-stamped.
