BFC partners with key groups to launch major circularity and innovation programme

Dubbed the Circular Fashion Innovation Network (CFIN), it comes with “a two-year ambition to create an industrial-scale change programme for the UK fashion and textile Industry through a lens of circularity and innovation”.The industry contributes £29 billion to UK gross domestic product, but it’s estimated that the consumption of new clothes in Britain is “higher than any other European country”, based on findings from The Circular Fashion Ecosystem Report by the Institute of Positive Fashion in 2021. 

“High consumption is coupled with low usage and large amounts of waste — there is therefore an urgent need to convene stakeholders and enable an actions-oriented forum to further the sustainable fashion agenda,” the BFC said.CFIN is co-chaired by BFC CEO Caroline Rush and UKFT CEO Adam Mansell and will sit under the Institute of Positive Fashion (IPF) umbrellaคำพูดจาก Game Casino. It will “bring together industry, innovators, investors, academia and broader stakeholders through an action led roadmap to accelerate the UK to a leading circular fashion economy”.And it spans all price levels with the advisory board including luxury, premium, high street, supermarket and value-led businesses as well as representatives from UKRI, academia and NGOs. At launch, as well as Rush and Mansell, the board includes representatives from Chanel, Sainsbury’s, and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, plus New Look’s CEO Helen Connolly, The British Retail Consortium’s CEO Helen Dickinson, and Richard Price who’s M&S’s MD of Clothing & Home.The board will “focus on the vision of the network, receive briefings from the Working Groups and to address scalability across the UK”.CFIN will also “play an essential central convening role in UKRI’s £15 million circular fashion programme to accelerate positive change within the fashion industry”.And it will work with other bodies researching the subject, while through the BFC’s Colleges Council and UKFT Education Partner Network, briefings on the programme to broader academic institutions will take place.
