Eight advisors join ECAP for sustainability drive

Mar '17
Eight special advisors have joined the European Clothing Action Plan (ECAP), the first EU-Life funded project to drive sustainability throughout the entire lifecycle of clothing. These individuals represent a variety of disciplines from academia and design to manufacture and recycling, and interest groups within participating EU member states.

The ECAP advisory group will offer guidance to the partner organisations responsible for delivering several action areas related to the European clothing sector, and will act as ambassadors for ECAP in helping to forge new partnerships with stakeholders and businesses within participating countries.

Leigh Mapledoram, head of programme at WRAP which oversees ECAP, said, "We are delighted to be working with such an experienced and influential group of advisors. We held our first group meeting recently, and it is obvious that the advisors' involvement will be invaluable in expanding ECAP's reach and that their energy and support will help towards ECAP achieving its ambitious goal of making European clothing more sustainable –from point of production to end of life."

ECAP focuses on the clothing supply chain specifically to reduce waste and to bring about effective waste recovery. Retailers, brands, suppliers, public sector, re-use and recycling organisations and charities are all encouraged to commit to a target-based Clothing Action Plan that will be supported by a consumer campaign to change behaviour.

The ECAP advisory group includes Alan Wheeler, general delegate within the Textiles Division of the Bureau of International Recycling; Baptiste Carriere-Pradal, vice president Europe Sustainable Apparel Coalition; Jef Wintermans, coordinator agreement on Sustainable Garments and Textile at the Sociaal-Economische Raad; Juergen Janssen-programme manager Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH (Partnership for Sustainable Textiles), Germany; Laila Petrie, manager, Global Partnerships for WWF International; Mauro Scalia, head of Sustainable Businesses, Euratex, Brussels; professor Rebecca Earley, Research Centre director and lead academic at University of the Arts London; Sigrid Barnekow, programme director Mistra Future Fashion, Stockholm, Sweden.
