Primark, M&S, Frasers Group and Dunelm are among the retail giants to sign circular economy charity Wrap’s textiles 2030 initiative to “reduce carbon emissions, improve water stewardship and make the clothing and textiles sector more circular”.

The 26 retailers supporting the pledge, which also includes John Lewis, Boohoo, Asda and Matalan, will contribute to “discussions around policy development for textiles in the UK”.

Wrap (which stands for Waste & Resources Action Programme) said its textiles 2030 annual progress report shows that brands who signed up to the agreement have reduced the carbon impact of the textiles they produce by 12%, as well as reducing water by 4% on a per tonne basis between 2019 and 2022.
