TIME | 3:00PM - 5:00PM AEST
DATE | Wednesday, 20 July 2022
WHERE | Online via Zoom
GLOBAL SCAN REPORT
The Global Scan Report provides learnings for Scheme design based on global best practices and a close contextual understanding of Australia’s capacity for change. The report is in three parts: 1) a survey of the current state of the Australian clothing industry and product stewardship; 2) an analysis of clothing waste policies and initiatives in 12 countries; and 3) an overview of technologies and processes that can support a circular economy for clothing. Led by the Queensland University of Technology team: Alice Payne, with Paige Street, Annastasia Bousgas and Caitlan Hopper.
The data report aims to; understand the structure of the sector to ensure the scheme elements are efficient and fair to all; to provide a comprehensive understanding of the flow of clothing in order to frame the scheme actions for maximised effectiveness; and to act as an important baseline by which we can measure changes and successes. Led by the Sustainable Resource Use team: Peter Allan and Jill Allan.
