- Modelling economic and material flows: Institutions, industry bodies and third sector to lead a government- commissioned project dedicated to modelling the detailed economic and material flows of a future circular ecosystem for UK fashion. This would entail robust quantification of materials flows, for instance through Material Flows Analysis (MFA). The modelling should also assess the subsequent economic implications of these flows, including economic impacts on businesses in the post-use ecosystem.
- Supporting manufacturing in the UK: Manufacturers to convene a multi-stakeholder initiative, including brands and government, to support and develop garment manufacturing in the UK. This initiative should focus on facilitating the fundamental conditions for:
- fair and decent work for all workers; and
- the utilisation of recycled inputs for UK manufacturing.
This should include research into the drivers of the success of certain UK retailers in expanding domestic manufacturing. The research should also aim to understand the capabilities, technology, capacity, and skills that the UK needs to develop within its infrastructure and workforce
