Missions and objectives of Refashion, the Textile industry's eco-organisation

Eco-organisation mission and objectives

Approved in 2009 by the public authorities, the eco-organization is the result of a
of a multi-stakeholder project. It relies on all the stakeholders in the clothing, household linen and footwear sector, from the designer to the recycler, to carry out its general interest mission.



To unite and support all the players in the production, consumption and regeneration processes in order to reduce impacts and create value.

Our mission is ambitious because it involves all levels of the textile industry. We want to serve all the trades to have a concrete impact at all levels. It is with this mission in mind that we wish to introduce ourselves to the players in the sector in order to establish with them a dynamic partnership for progress and value creation.


The CHF industry's project

To be part of the dynamics of a circular economy: to set up an innovative and sustainable model, driving activity and environmental, economic and social performance.

Environmental stakes


More than 2.9 billion CHF items are placed on the market every year. When they don't end up in the bin or are used by several people or their materials are recycled for other uses, they enable waste to be reduced, natural resources to be preserved and Greenhouse Gases (GHG) and pollution to be limited.

Economic stakes


Reusing or recycling equates to giving back value to what would otherwise be destroyed. The used CHF recovery and recycling industry is a growing industry.

Social stakes

With objectives which include increasing collection and qualifying sorting to develop recycling, the industry can create employment at local level.

Our objectives

To give everyone the keys to action to implement a 100% circular fashion

  • Reduce our environmental impact by implementing, alongside the other EPR channels, the ambitious policy of the Ministry of Ecological Transition within the framework of the Law on the fight against waste and the circular economy (AGEC law),

  • Raise citizens' awareness of the right sorting gestures,

  • Double the volume of TLC collected in the short term and increase the proportion of TLC recovered during collection,

  • Accompany our members on the path to eco-design by providing tools, services and information that facilitate and accelerate the transformation of the sector,

  • To support local authorities in their initiatives of Industrial Ecology of Territories (EIT) and awareness of the citizens,

  • Supporting the transition to a circular economy by financing innovative recycling projects,

  • To develop the recycling industry for used textiles that cannot be reused or recycled by supporting the downstream players in the sector.
