As part of efforts to reduce the environmental impacts caused by the consumption of textiles, the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed a goal of reducing the number of textiles in residual waste by 60 percent in 2025, compared to 2015, and that 90 percent of separately collected textile waste shall be prepared for reuse or recycling.

The ability to achieve these ambitious goals depends to a large extent on whether collection and processing of collected used textiles remains economically attractive for the actors in the value chain. The economics of these activities are dependent on both collection conditions in Sweden and on global reuse and recycling markets since a large part of used textiles collected in Sweden is exported.

This report looks at the market dynamics governing the used textile industry.

The lead research question is: how would the value chain react to a doubling of collected used textile volumes in Sweden and in Europe and what measures would be necessary to maintain economic viability? Swedish, other European and international actors involved in collection, sorting and wholesale of used textiles were interviewed to get their perspectives on this research question.

This review of empirical evidence on working conditions seeks to determine whether wages and working conditions are better in or out of global supply chains. Understanding the relative wages and other working conditions in exporters compared to domestic producers can help authorities make better policies and laws that will support sustainable development and economic growth. This review considers and compares evidence from firms that participate in global supply chains to those that do not. Although global – or cross border – supply chains exist in all countries, this analysis focuses on the manufacturing sector in developing countries, where concerns have been expressed about low wages and poor working conditions as potential consequences of participation in global supply chains
