The non-profit H&M Foundation opened the second Global Change Award 2016 for entries from September 1. The €1 million award encourages innovations in textiles and apparels that can accelerate the shift from a linear to a circular fashion industry, with the objective to protect the planet and its living conditions and make it a better place.

Apparels made from citrus by-products, microbes that digest waste polyester, and an online marketplace for textile leftovers were a few of the five ideas that shared the first Global Change Award in 2015.

In order to encourage ideas from a broader scope, rather than making the fashion industry circular through just recycling, the Global Change Award 2016 has three categories.

The first, circular business model covers ideas on how to reuse, repair, share, digitalise or extend the life of products.

The second, circular materials looks for ideas on new fibres, recycling techniques, leather substitutes, while the third, circular processes aims to find new methods around chemicals, water and dyeing, as well as 3D printing, etc.

The H&M Foundation was set up by Swedish apparel retailer H&M in 2015 and the first Global Change Award received more than 2,700 applications from 112 countries. (AR)
