‘This report shows how we can all value clothing more, saving money and reducing environmental impact. The clothing sector is already working to reduce the impact of clothing, and together we will take forward more ideas which deliver real benefits to us all.’ - Liz Goodwin, CEO, WRAP
This chapter sets out the opportunities for the clothing sector to reduce carbon emissions, resource use and waste – and gain business benefit from doing so.
While many of the opportunities are up to businesses themselves to evaluate and take forward, one action that organisations across the sector can take is to sign up to the Sustainable Clothing Action Plan (SCAP) 2020 Commitment.
