CASE STUDY: Greening the fashion and textile sector
The NCM projects have a wide range of focus and many different types of outputs. Much of what has been developed – publications, guidelines and tools – has relevance outside the Nordic region. This work deserves to be spread to help build capacity in other regions.
As a first step in disseminating these works, summaries of 15 the projects and links to their main outputs have been uploaded to the OPN site. Links to the 15 summaries are provided below.
The longer term plan is to create a Sustainable Textile and Fashion Hub hosted by the Programme on Sustainable Lifestyles and Education on the One Planet network website. The vision is to create a hub with the Nordic resources at its core but which quickly expands to include relevant resources from around the world. Stakeholders will be encouraged to upload their own relevant resources and initiatives and link them to relevant parts of the textile value chain. The Hub will act as a key catalyser and gathering point for policy makers and stakeholders interested in engendering a green transition in the global value chain of textiles and fashion.
