Panel Discussion Enabling Circular B2B-Textiles

Interdisciplinary Circular Economy Conference 2020
Event by: Chair of Societal Transition and Circular Economy, University of Freiburg
01.12.20 - 01.12.20, Online (Freiburg)

What could a circular textile economy with efficient recycling processes and infrastructures look like? Could textile leasing replace the purchase of workwear?

This participatory panel discussion examined circular economy in the business-to-business textile sector. Why? Workwear leads to enormous quantities of identical textiles – with serious consequences for the environment. Picture for example applications in health care, tourism or uniforms for police and transport operators. Five expert panelists presented both current scientific findings and practical solutions to transform the market and discussed on “design for circularity“ and “innovative business models“.
