Euroopan komissiossa kaivataan tekstiilialan toimijoiden sitoumuksia tekstiilien siirtymäpolkuun

Euroopan komissio hakee yritysten ja muiden organisaatioiden sitoumuksia ns. tekstiilien siirtymäpolkuun. Sitoumuksiksi sopivat jo tehdyt sekä suunnitteilla olevat toimet vihreän ja/tai digitaalisen siirtymän aikaansaamiseksi.

Euroopan komissio julkaisi tekstiiliekosysteemin siirtymäpolun 6. kesäkuuta 2023. Siirtymäpolku kuvaa, mitä digitalisaatio ja vihreä siirtymä sekä eurooppalaisen teollisuuden tarvitsema kilpailukyvyn ja häiriönsietokyvyn kasvattaminen merkitsevät tekstiiliekosysteemille. Siirtymäpolku myös listaa, mitä EU:n, jäsenvaltioiden ja toimialan sitoumuksia ja toimia siirtymän tukemiseksi tarvitaan. Komissio hakee nyt toimialan sitoumuksia.

Sitoumusten saamiseksi komissio on julkaissut sähköisen kyselyn, jonka kautta sitoumuksia voi toimittaa. Sitoumuksiksi sopivat jo tehdyt sekä suunnitteilla olevat toimet vihreän ja/tai digitaalisen siirtymän aikaansaamiseksi. Siirtymäpolun sisällöistä voit lukea liiton uutisesta.

Sitoumukset voit toimittaa tällä lomakkeellaLomakkeella voit valita, mihin siirtymäpolun osakokonaisuuksiin organisaationne sitoutuu tai on jo sitoutunut. Tämä kanava on samalla erinomainen tapa toimittaa alan uudistuksista tietoa komissioon. Suomessa toimialalla on menossa useita erinomaisia toteutuksia, hankkeita ja uusia aloitteita. Kannustammekin niin valmistavia ja palveluyrityksiä kuin startupeja ja oppilaitoksia täyttämään tämän kyselyn.
