Hide / Show Abstract

A Nordic strategy for improved collection, sorting, reuse and recycling of textiles in the Nordic region (Nordic Strategy) is presented in this report. The strategy is an elaboration of the most promising scenario “Nordic innovation” presented in the scenario subreport, and specific aspects of the other three scenarios. In addition, experiences made in the two projects The Nordic textile reuse and recycling commitment and An extended producer responsibility (EPR) system and new business models to increase reuse and recycling of textiles in the Nordic region fed into the development of the strategy. The projects are part of the Nordic Prime Minister’s initiative, The Nordic Region – leading in green growth, which identifies eight priorities aiming at increasing green growth in the region.
