Webinar Series: Europe’s Green Transition in the Textile Sector
The webinar series of The Partnership for Sustainable Textile and the Green Button on upcoming legislation under the EU Textile Strategie goes into the second round - Hinweis: Diese Webinar Reihe findet auf Englisch statt
Join the Partnership for Sustainable Textiles and the Green Button on 23rd of October 2023 for the second session of the webinar series to learn more about the EU’s Green Deal and how it will affect the textile and garment sector. Hear from experts and stakeholders about what’s coming and how to be best prepared.
In late 2019, the European Commission published its European Green Deal, the EU’s new growth strategy to make the EU climate neutral by 2050 and to transform the EU into a modern, resource-efficient, and competitive economy. In March 2022, the publication of the Strategy for Sustainable and Circular Textiles followed, setting out a vision to ensure that: “By 2030 textile products placed on the EU market are long lived and recyclable, to a great extent made of recycled fibres, free of hazardous substances and produced in respect of social rights and the environment.”
Under these strategies, the EU Commission has put forward several far-reaching legislative initiatives, many of them are expected to enter into force from 2025 and 2026 onwards. Introducing far-reaching new design requirements, greenwashing regulation, rules to prevent overproduction and overconsumption, and rules to handle textile waste more responsibly, these initiatives will completely overhaul the rules for production, consumption, sale, and disposal of textiles in the EU.
You want to know more about the legislative framework under the EU Green Deal and how it could initiate change and affect your business? Join us for the next webinars on upcoming legislation under the EU Green Deal and the EU Textile Strategy!
The webinar series will provide you with:
- an introduction to the wider EU policy landscape and how upcoming legislations relate to international obligations
- a deep dive into specific legislative initiatives that will transform the textile and apparel sector in the coming years
- a better understanding of how these initiatives will likely impact companies and global supply chains.
