EU Strategy for Sustainable and Circular Textiles
Our consumption of textiles in Europe has the fourth-highest impact on the environment and climate change, after food, housing and mobility. It is also the third-highest area of consumption for water and land use.
The specific measures will include ecodesign requirements for textiles and a mandatory EU extended producer responsibility scheme. It also foresees measures to tackle the unintentional release of microplastics from textiles.
