UK launches Textile 2030 project


The UK government has launched a new project that aims to transform its fast fashion culture into one where products are made sustainably and then re-used or recycled.

Known as Textile 2030, the project will be developed by the University of Leeds School of Design with support from clothing brands such as John Lewis, Primark, Sainsbury’s and Marks & Spencer, and recycling organizations who will set targets, measure the impact of products and track progress towards national targets as part of the initiative.

The project aims to cut carbon by 50 per cent, limit global warming to 1.5°C, in line with the Paris Agreement on climate change, achieve Net Zero by 2050 at the latest and reduce the aggregate water footprint of new products sold by 30 per cent.

This target-based approach will be used so that textiles businesses set tough targets, measure impact and track progress on both an individual business basis, and towards national targets and public reporting.
