Danish industry collaboration to unite fashion brands on circularity

The Textiles Action Network aims to become the first international framework tackling the environmental impacts caused by fashion and textiles. It encompasses the UK’s Textiles 2030 and now Lifestyle & Design Cluster (LDC), which works to promote innovation and sustainable growth primarily in the small and medium-sized housing and fashion companies as well as in the creative industries, and will be representing the interests of the Danish industry collaboration.
