Introduction of EPR systems for textiles
EU strategy for sustainable and recyclable textiles gathers momentum
A sustainable and circular strategy for textiles starts with the production and consumption of 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 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 Textile Strategy aims to ensure that by 2030, textile products on the EU market will be durable, recyclable, contain no hazardous substances and will mostly be made of recycled fibres. This goal is to be achieved while respecting social rights and protecting the environment. The reparability of the textiles should also be ensured. All these aspects are to become reality by manufacturers taking responsibility for their textile products along the entire value chain. This therefore is a classic EPR system.
Both take-e-way GmbH and trade-e-bility GmbH will closely follow the further legislative process and develop appropriate solutions for manufacturers, importers and traders alike. We already offer a wide range of services in the field of textile products (clothing, furniture, mattresses, toys, etc.) today, such as:
