Circular Transition Indicators (CTI): Sector guidance – Fashion and Textile


18 January, 2024



The winds of change are blowing strong in the fashion industry. As regulatory demands rise and consumers seek sustainability, the shift from a linear to a circular fashion and textile value chain is paramount. To achieve this transformation effectively and profitably, the industry needs a standardized approach to measure and drive circularity.

Discover the power of the Circular Transition Indicators (CTI), a robust metrics framework positioned to be the universal language of circular performance and accountability. CTI enables businesses to assess circularity levels, set improvement targets and monitor progress.

While CTI is versatile across industries, this publication tailors it specifically to address the unique challenges of the fashion sector. In collaboration with leading companies in the CTI Fashion Initiative, we present a suite of metrics empowering fashion and textile businesses to:

  • Define clear circularity roadmaps and track progress.
  • Make informed decisions on circular strategies, weighing benefits and trade-offs.
  • Gain insights into how circularity, initiatives impact climate and nature goals.
  • Strengthen reporting capabilities, providing investors and regulators with essential data.

Seize this opportunity to propel your business toward a sustainable, circular fashion future.
