TRAID becomes partner signatory to Textiles 2030
We’re delighted to announce that we are one of the pioneering signatories to Textiles 2030, the UK’s most ambitious voluntary agreement designed to limit the impact clothes and home textiles have on climate change in line with the Paris Agreement and the UN Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action.
Textiles 2030 uses a ‘ Target Measure Act’ approach to reduce the impact of fashion and homewares products across the UK. Along with other signatories, we will set tough targets, measure the impact of our products and track our progress on an individual basis, towards national targets. By 2030, we will reduce our combined greenhouse gas emissions in line with a 1.5°C UN trajectory to reduce climate change reducing carbon impact by 50%, reducing the water footprint of products sold by 30% and following a roadmap to a more circular fashion future.
As a Partner Signatory, TRAID will pursue a joint circularity leadership agenda, following a circularity roadmap and collaborating with others across the textiles industry to transform the sector. The roadmap will ensure products are made to be recyclable, more products are acquired for re use, and more circular raw material than linear raw material is in new products.
