Webinar: Why should circularity be a priority in the apparel sector?

All stakeholders in the apparel value chain need to reduce the high amounts of textile waste. It is a shared responsibility for brands, manufacturers and end-consumers and their governments. The European Union (EU) and its member states promote the circular economy through new regulations and subsidies. Also, new techniques for recycling textiles are being developed. The current circularity trend creates interesting opportunities for manufacturers in the apparel sector.

Join this webinar to discover what your role is in this transition.

Our experts will discuss:

  • How legislation forces the industry to change;
  • How to look at the problem to identify solutions;
  • Key players in the recycling industry;
  • Successful business cases;
  • Groenendijk Bedrijfskleding's mission for a sustainable future; and
  • Your questions.

For whom?

This webinar is for entrepreneurs and business support organisations active in the apparel sector. These entrepreneurs currently export their products to Europe or aim to export as recycling forerunners.
