The Policy Hub - Circularity for Apparel and footwear unites the
industry to develop ambitious policies that accelerate sustainable practices. Launched in
2019, we represent more than 700 stakeholders of the apparel and footwear industry, including brands,
retailers, manufacturers, and NGOs. We gather the technical expertise and knowledge from
members of our partner organisations: Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC), Global Fashion
Agenda (GFA), Federation of European Sporting Goods (FESI), and Textile Exchange. In
close collaboration with policymakers, the Policy Hub draws on these technical inputs to
propose ambitious policies for the textiles industry in Europe.
