Textile & Fashion 2030
The Swedish government has given the University of Borås the task of establishing and leading Textile & Fashion 2030—the national platform for sustainable fashion and textiles. The goal is to strengthen the positive forces already at work and together ensure that the Swedish textile and fashion industry’s contributions to meeting the global goals of Agenda 2030 are realized.
Textile & Fashion 2030 is the platform that puts Sweden at the forefront when it comes to the development of the textile and fashion sector in moving towards sustainability and a circular economy. Its aims to promote collaboration, to make research and development results available, to promote sustainable business models, to strengthen the work of SMEs to achieve circular flow and environmentally sustainable development and to minimize negative environmental effects from production.
Swedish companies can join Textile & Fashion 2030 free of charge and thus gain access to guidance, tools and knowledge as a support in sustainability work. Read more about How to join on the platform's website, where there is also educational material to access through the Knowledge Bank and the Media Archive.
The five-year assignment is led by Smart Textiles, part of Science Park Borås at the University of Borås, in collaboration with the Swedish School of Textiles, the Swedish Fashion Council, the RISE Research Institutes of Sweden, TEKO – the Swedish trade and employers’ association for companies working in the textile and fashion industry and Svensk Handel (Swedish Trade Federation).
