Textiles have some of the most significant environmental impacts in Europe after food, housing and transport.

Key to reducing these impacts will be enabling circular use and end-of-life solutions through Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR), reducing the vast quantities of disposed, landfilled or incinerated textiles.

In this report we argue that harmonising EPR schemes between EU member states will be essential to reduce burdens on producers, maximise the benefits of the schemes and allow the single market to function effectively.
