Charity organization Wrap plans to launch ‘Textiles 2030’ program on April 12, 2021 to reduce the impact of textiles on environment. Wrap will also launch ‘Textiles 2030 roadmap’ simultaneously to set targets for water and carbon reduction. Over 10 brands and retailers including John Lewis, M&S, Next and Primark have signed up to the agreement, as well as 20 textile reuse and recycling organizations.
Over the next decade, the voluntary agreement aims to slash the impact that UK clothing and home fabrics have on the environment through practical interventions along the entire textiles chain. It will adopt a “target-measure-act” approach to encourage textiles businesses set tough targets, measure impact and track progress on both an individual business basis, and towards national targets and public reporting.
The agreement was launched after Wrap’s SCAP 2020 program missed its target for waste reduction.
