Just transition to a low environmental impact circular fashion industry
The fashion industry has come under fire for harming the environment, committing human rights violations and providing poor job conditions for workers. The EU-funded FReSCH project aims to move the industry towards environmentally sustainable practices, built on justice and fairness. The project will research the optimal strategies for a just, fair and inclusive transition to a low-carbon circular fashion industry, using a novel methodology. This will be among the first attempts to examine economic, environmental and social sustainability to understand the trade-offs, tensions and outcomes in the transition to a more viable model.
