Today, we are excited to share our brand new research on the UK clothing industry with you. Valuing Our Clothes: the cost of UK fashion explores the environmental impact of the UK clothing industry, and includes research on consumer behaviour and attitudes, towards buying, caring for, and disposing of clothing.
The report highlights achievements from the Sustainable Clothing Action Plan (SCAP) a collaborative framework, and voluntary agreement of organisations across the supply chain.
We have found:
SCAP signatories have outperformed the UK clothing sector, reducing carbon by 10.6%, water by 13.5%, and waste across the product life cycle by 0.8%, per tonne of clothing since 2012.
While SCAP signatories and consumers have made good progress, the overall impact of UK clothing is still going up. The report highlights a number of ways that businesses can reduce this impact and achieve their targets.
