QSA Partners, Circular Business Model Advisor
Gerrard of QSA Partners has worked at the leading edge of product sustainability and circular business models for almost two decades. He advises the EC on ecodesign and circular business projects, and has helped many fashion businesses work out how to deploy circular models like repair, resale and rental. His past work includes implementing European-wide product labelling, contributing to the IPF's Circular Fashion Ecosystem report and assessing the environmental impact of major resale platforms through "displacement" research. His current focus is on helping the fashion industry create fair and effective EPR incentives based on better data and his experience of other EPR systems in the UK and EU.
Gerrard also runs a cotton recycling business that donates beds to vulnerable and homeless people.
