UNEP is supporting Sustainable Consumption and Production systems in the textiles sector by providing access to expertise and data on life cycle thinking, resource efficiency and circularity. The InTex project will officially be launched 15 June 2021 11:00-12:00 CEST.
The project supports the uptake of eco-innovation and use of Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) within textile SMEs in Kenya, South Africa, and Tunisia. At the same time, it will catalyse global efforts to increase LCA data accessibility through GLAD; and will also provide evidence on the potential environmental and socio-economic impacts of adopting innovative circular policies and practices in the textile value chain.
The launch will feature insights on the role of circularity and the textile value chain in Africa from UNEP, the EU, and InTex partners. Interested in joining the virtual launch? Register here.
InTex is a three-year project led by UNEP and funded by the European Union (EU) to promote sustainable business practices and economic models in the textile value chain. Several partner organisations are involved, including the International Centre for Environmental Technologies of Tunis (CITET) in Tunisia, Moi University in Kenya and the Centre for African Resource Efficiency and Sustainability (CARES) and the National Cleaner Production Centre of South Africa (NCPC-SA) in South Africa
