Circular economy

suPPPort circular Economy

What is circular economy?

The fashion business is changing. With emerging markets and an increasing demand for textile fibers, the apparel industry is facing massive future challenges. Inefficient linear resource flows, increasing costs for environmental & waste management as well as planetary boundaries are the trigger for rethinking the current economy system and a strong movement towards circularity within the whole industry. Circular Economy strategy`s represent a huge opportunity, not only when it comes to increasing resource security and reducing the environmental impact of production, but also for creating growth and driving profitability. We suPPPort you within the transition from a linear “take-make-dispose” economy towards closed loop business strategies and new business opportunities.
