Yvette Ashby, CEO and Founder of PCIAW®, is set to represent the professional clothing industry in WRAP’s Textiles 2030 Advisory Group.
The Advisory Group will share insights, identify priorities and guide the direction and delivery of Textiles 2030. The Group will provide expertise to ensure that the voluntary agreement is well-designed to support signatory action in reducing the carbon and water footprints of UK textiles and increasing circularity.
Yvette has also joined the the Policy Working Group will share evidence and insights to inform key policy developments, helping the government to engage with the textiles industry to better inform policy-making.
In addition, Yvette will also sit on the Circularity Working Group, which will cover good practice design principles, explore reuse business models, and decouple business growth from the use of virgin resources.
With over 25 years of industry experience, Yvette will contribute vital knowledge and longstanding expertise to the newly constituted Textiles 2030 Advisory, Circularity, and Policy Groups. The Textiles 2030 Advisory Group will be supported by Working Groups in measurement, policy and circularity, which are governed by signatories of the voluntary initiative.
PCIAW® is a proud Founding Signatory of Textiles 2030, WRAP’s expert-led initiative dedicated to accelerating the textiles industry’s move towards circularity in the UK, which successfully launched in April 2021.
The Textiles 2030 Advisory Group is chaired by the CEO of WRAP, Marcus Gover, and involves diverse brands, retailers, charity organisations, reuse and recycling organisations, home textiles and government representatives.
The Groups will guide and shape the future direction of the Textiles 2030 by reviewing governance proposals and proposing effective delivery methods, including workstreams and working groups. They will provide oversight of other sector initiatives, policy developments and any other issues in the UK, Europe and worldwide impacting Textiles 2030 goals.
