Today’s linear “take, make, dispose” economic model, which sends too many garments to landfills and incinerators, is simply not sustainable. Globally only 20% of clothing is collected for reuse or recycling and waste from the fashion industry is projected to increase, bringing the total to 148 million tonnes by 2030.
Signatories commit to defining a circular strategy, setting targets for June 2020 and reporting on the progress of implementing the commitment. Global Fashion Agenda will support the brands in implementing the commitment through knowledge sharing, policy engagement and by facilitating industry alignment.
The deadline for signing the 2020 Circular Fashion System Commitment Letter is 31 December 2017. Click here to sign up!
