The Netherlands has set an ambitious goal: full circularity by 2050 and halved resource consumption by 2030. Meeting this goal will require change spanning sectors—and the textile and clothing industry, which releases 1.2 billion tonnes of CO2 each year—must be prioritised. This report dives into three scenarios for a circular clothing industry in the Netherlands, analysing the employment impact of each. It explores how different strategies—ranging from a shift in consumption patterns to a prioritisation of repair to an increased focus on textile cycling—will impact the job market, and dives into the skills that will be needed to support a circular clothing industry. 


Can we apply the lessons learnt from this report to other consumer goods? This briefing deep dives into the employment potential and skills needs for circular furniture and electronics sectors into the Netherlands, comparing the findings to those of Putting circular textiles to work.

Circle Economy and HIVA kick-started this research with a snapshot report in March, which presented the initial findings of the Putting circular textiles to work report.
