#EUCircularTalks: Circular Business Models for Fashion & Apparel: How can policy make the economics work?

About the EU Circular Talks

The EU Circular Talks is an exchange concept of the European Circular Economy Stakeholder Platform. It aims to encourage stakeholders to interact and discuss the circular economy topics in the platform.

Stakeholders initiate the topics themselves. These can take multiple forms of online events; workshops, seminars, debates or Q&As. These are followed by discussions directly via the platform’s communication channels. The #EUCircularTalks uses all the communication channels to inform the community and foster the debate on the circular economy. The results of each EU Circular Talk is summarised and published on the ECESP platform.

The Webinar

For the fashion and apparel industry to operate within the planetary boundaries, it will be necessary to shift to circular business models that decouple economic activity from the use of virgin materials and other resources. To achieve this, it will be necessary to break away from linear ways of doing business, and to boost the economic rationale for product longevity, reuse, repair and recycling.

What policy tools and mechanisms are needed on the road to 2030 to accelerate the uptake and positive impact of circular business models in apparel and textiles? How do the proposed EU Textile Strategy and related legislative proposals address circular business models and what are the policy gaps?

During this webinar we will hear perspectives and suggestions from various experts and stakeholders, including representatives from retail, social enterprise, city government and a repair/remanufacturing provider. We will also hear the European Commission’s view on the role of policy and legislation in enabling the uptake of circular business models for textiles.
