06 July 2022

The European Recycling Industries’ Confederation (EuRIC) welcomes the publication of the EU Strategy for Sustainable and Circular Textiles1 creating conditions and incentives to reach a sustainable and circular textiles value chain by 2030.
The European textiles re-use and recycling industry is key to accelerate the transition towards a circular economy in textiles. Through preparation for re-use or recycling, the industry gives textiles a second life and saves resources, emissions and energy compared to the use of virgin textiles fibres. Additionally, it is a labor-intensive and local industry, relying on a wide variety of skilled professionals.
