Green policies for China’s textile industry

Green policies for China’s textile industry
Last year, President Xi Jinping committed China to achieving carbon neutrality by 2060 and in June this year, the China National Textile and Apparel Council (CNTAC) released the 14th Five-Year Plan for the textile sector. One of the goals is to develop a greener and more sustainable textile and apparel industry in the coming five years, with a focus on circular economy and creating new products from recycled materials. The plan aims for recycled materials to account for 15% of the total textile fibre manufacturing market from 2021 to 2025.
Consumer behaviour change and sustainable fashion

Consumer behaviour and sustainable fashion
Besides government policies, consumer awareness about sustainability has also increased. According to the Vogue Business Index, Chinese consumers’ impression on sustainability has shifted from “nice to have” to “important but not mandatory” after the pandemic. A study conducted by IPSOS also revealed that 85% of Chinese respondents have changed their consumer behaviour out of concerns about climate change, compared to a global average of 69%. They intend to buy clothes from sustainable sources and in first-tier cities like Beijing and Shanghai, the idea of upcycling has emerged, with local fashion designers showcasing their upcycled garments at Shanghai Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2021. There’s no doubt that the concept of sustainable fashion is becoming more popular and significant among Chinese consumers! Read our case study to find out more about how sustainability is being perceived in China.
