Five leading fashion brands and retailers are among the first to sign up for the European Clothing Action Plan (ECAP), a European sustainable clothing plan, launched in May 2016. ECAP is developing a framework across the Europe Union, to deliver practical actions that will reduce the carbon, water and waste footprints across the lifecycle of clothing.

Among the companies which have signed up include Bobo Choses, OVS, Peak Performance, Primark, and Star Sock, who will work towards the ECAP goal.

Goals include, divert 90,000 tons of clothing waste from landfill and incineration; save 1.6 million tons of CO2 and lastly ensure 588 million cubic of water savings.

As participants, the brands and retailers benefit from support from ECAP to understand the current environmental impact of their fibre footprint and develop a strategy to reduce this impact. (AR)
