A circular economy tackles the root causes of global challenges such as climate change, biodiversity loss, and pollution, while creating opportunities for better growth. It is underpinned by three principles, all led by design: eliminate waste and pollution, keep products and materials in use, and regenerate natural systems.
For fashion, it means ensuring that products (apparel, footwear, accessories) are used more, are made to be made again, and are made from safe and recycled or renewable inputs. A circular economy for fashion creates better products and services for customers, contributes to a resilient and thriving fashion industry, and regenerates the environment. In delivering the vision, the rights and equity of all people involved in the fashion industry are prioritised.
The report provides common definitions and explanations to underpin the vision, aiming to support transparency and consistency. The section builds on ISO and BSI definitions where applicable.
