Type: Research
Year: 2022
Language: English
Country: India

This study aims to assess the textile landscape of India including government policy and industry initiatives to capture the resource use profile in the textile value chain. It also identifies hotspots in the textile value chain where action needs to be taken to institutionalize resource efficiency and reduce environmental impact. Mapping of existing policies across life cycle stages of the Indian textile value chain and their intersection with other sectors like agriculture and environment have been analyzed based on their role in promoting resource efficiency. Policy gaps have been identified based on the current role of the existing policy framework and identify the need for new policy, reforms/additions in existing policies and initiatives to institutionalizing resource efficiency and achieve circularity in the textile industry.
