Textiles 2030 - WRAP’s Award-winning Initiative

Textiles 2030 is WRAP’s award-winning, ground-breaking initiative, harnessing the knowledge and expertise of UK leaders in sustainability to accelerate the UK fashion and textiles industry towards a circular economy.

Building on the Sustainable Clothing Action Plan (SCAP 2020), Textiles 2030 aims to engage UK fashion and textiles organisations across retail, reuse, supply and recycling in a collaborative initiative to tackle the effects the industry has on climate change. Focussing on developing the circular economy, Textiles 2030 has set out ambitious targets for reductions in carbon and water footprints.

The University of Manchester is one of a collection of affiliate partners in the scheme, contributing expertise to the initiative. As an institution, the university is strongly committed to taking action and the Textiles 2030 program will sit alongside the institutional goals for sustainability. The aim is to involve all students across the university with Textiles 2030 activities, but the first steps are to embed the principles in our curriculum across our fashion, business and technology courses, creating the industry professionals of the future armed with all the knowledge and tools to implement change.
