Low Carbon Transition Programme

The British Fashion Council’s Institute of Positive Fashion continues the journey to help move the industry towards net zero and a more circular future.

Low Carbon Transition Programme

The British Fashion Council has been awarded funding by The Greater London Authority’s UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF), which aims to support early-stage London-based businesses in high-growth sectors. Through the Low Carbon Transition Programme, the British Fashion Council will engage 50 London-based SMEs within the fashion and textile industry, on the topics of climate change, and circularity by supporting them in understanding their emissions and implementing decarbonisation plans to reduce their operational and supply chain emissions.  

To support with delivery of this programme, the Institute of Positive Fashion is working with consultancy firm QSA Partners and partners, Think Circular and Seedling. Together our partners will provide practical, hands-on support with carbon literacy training on core sustainability topics, access to digital tools to help baseline and track emissions data and workshops to explore circular business models and products. 

The Low Carbon Transition Programme will take a cohort approach and will provide each SME a range of benefits:

  • Learning and development
  • A community of fellow SMEs undertaking the journey together
  • A tailored approach to suit each business
  • Access to carbon and circularity experts within the fashion sector
  • Hands-on support
  • Ongoing resource access

Through this work, the British Fashion Council will help to build industry knowledge on climate change and decarbonisation, implement climate action within the industry by supporting 50 SMEs to reduce their individual environmental impact whilst promoting the role of circularity as part of decarbonisation and achieving net zero emissions.

The Low Carbon Transition Programme will run until March 2025
