The negative effects of fast-moving and hardly recyclable textiles on the environment are immense and the EU Commission therefore sees a strong need for regulation to counteract the “fast fashion trend”. As is already the case for electrical appliances, batteries and packaging, extended producer responsibility (EPR) is also to be formulated for textiles. The EU’s action programme, commonly referred to as Textile Strategy, has its origins in the European Green Deal, the Circular Economy Action Plan and the Industrial Strategy.
The Textile Strategy aims to ensure that by 2030, textile products on the EU market will be manufactured with respect for social and environmental rights, are durable and recyclable, do not contain hazardous substances and are mostly made of recycled fibres. Manufacturers along the entire value chain should take responsibility for their textile products.
