Abstract
This report is the outcome of Part I of a research project entitled An EPR system and new business models to in- crease reuse and recycling of textiles in the Nordic region. The overall aim of the project is to propose policy packages in Nordic countries which would support extended producer responsibility (EPR) systems and innovative business models which promote greater reuse and recycling of used textiles. In addition to reducing environmental impacts such policy packages would also increase the competitiveness of the Nordic region. The project is part of the Nordic Prime Ministers’ green growth initiative, The Nordic Region – leading in green growth.

The project is part of the Nordic Prime Ministers’ green growth initiative, The Nordic Region – leading in green growth.



The aims of Part I of the project were to identify, describe and evaluate existing EPR systems and other innovative business models for clothing and other textiles, both in the Nordic countries and further afield. It includes 1)survey of existing EPR-systems and business models, 2) Evaluation of eight EPR-systems and business models, and 3) Costs and benefits of EPR-systems and two business models. The work was carried out through a combination of literature studies and consultation with key stakeholders. (Less)
