Samenvatting

QUOTES “Adapting circular strategies to manage post-consumer textile waste is an emerging field for fashion retailers, that is rich of opportunities to generate additional revenue, lower their impact on the environment and develop closer relationships with their target audience. One barrier for retailers to adapt circular strategies is the lack of know-how and of best-practice examples.” “The ‘7 elements’ of circular strategies: 1. prioritize regenerative resources - 2. preserve and extend what’s already made - 3. use waste as a resource - 4. design for the future - 5. collaborate to create joint value - 6. rethink the business model - 7. incorporate digital technology” RESEARCH QUESTION (RQ) Where are fashion retailers positioned in the European landscape of post-consumer textile management? SUB-QUESTIONS (SQ1) What does the landscape of existing organizations practicing post-consumer textile waste management across Europe currently look like? (SQ2) Which type of circular strategies are most commonly used by fashion retailers? (SQ3) What is the relation between fashion retailers and other members of the landscape? GOAL The main goal of this research is to support the emerging field of textile circularity by facilitating knowledge sharing along stakeholders of the industry and by promoting the concept ‘circular economy’ further. This is done by: (1) providing a list of best-practice examples for the field of sustainable fashion business models - (2) providing a long list of companies suggested for possible partnerships for retailers who want to adapt circular strategies - (3) providing a comprehensive status report as a basis for further academic research. MANUAL The manual is based on the research. It outlines a 7-Step approach for retailers who want to adapt circular strategies to manage their post-consumer textile waste.
