Textile & Clothing Business Labs
#Business Models #Fashion
The goal of the TCBL Project has been to create a transformational business ecosystem capable of constantly innovating the business and process models of the European Textile and Clothing industry. This in turn aims to bring 5% of production capacity back to Europe and reduce the sector’s environmental footprint by 20% by 2025.
Boost triple sustainability in the fashion industry through innovation.
The wealth of value created in the four years of the TCBL Project is being capitalised through the TCBL Foundation, the structure currently being established by key project partners entrusted with carrying forward the network’s activities. The TCBL Foundation’s Business Plan and a growing number of strategic partnerships bode well the long-term sustainability.
- TCBL is thus expected to have a widespread impact on the T&C industry in Europe, shifting consumer goals, expectations, and even engagement in the processes of designing and making clothes. This in turn will have both social and environmental impacts, as well as significantly improving the prosperity of Europe’s diffused systems of production.
