Join us on 26th April to celebrate the launch of Textiles 2030, an ambitious new initiative on a mission to transform the fashion and textiles sector into a climate-neutral and profitable industry that is fit for the future.
Textiles 2030 is bringing the whole fashion and textiles industry together with governments, research institutes, innovators and disruptors with a bold commitment to make fashion more sustainable and tackle climate change.
Our climate is in crisis and WRAP’s research shows that the UK textiles’ sector needs to act quickly, going further and faster than ever before if we are to maintain our greenhouse gas emissions within a 1.5-degree warming trajectory.
Fashion businesses are under ever increasing scrutiny: from customers who demand products produced sustainably; government who are changing legislation on design and sale of textiles; and investors who now require reporting on climate progress.
It is clear the sector needs to break the pattern of take, make, and dispose and move towards a circular system where products are re-used and recycled more easily. WRAP has over 15 years experience delivering cross-sector voluntary agreements which create real change. Textiles 2030 is building on the success of SCAP 2020 which saw businesses achieving major reduction in their carbon and water footprints across its eight year programme.
With over 35 organisations already signed up, WRAP is delighted to officially launch Textiles 2030 on April 26th. Please join us to celebrate the beginning of this exciting new era for fashion and to find out more about getting signed up.
We will be led by an expert panel including WRAP CEO Marcus Gover, Baroness Lola Young, Environment Minister Rebecca Pow, and Richard Swannell, Head of WRAP Global. This virtual event will break into smaller sessions where you can network with our pioneering members and delve into the practicalities of being part of the initiative.
