Abstract [en]

Textile, Clothing and Fashion (TCF) are one of the most unsustainable industries in the world. This challenges triple-bottom line sustainability thus calling for increased intervention by designing sustainable development. Several industrial sustainability models have addressed this issue but they assume incremental improvements and growth while addressing global challenges. Thus a Sustainable Business Model perspective is required to think and go beyond these increments and reconceive radically how businesses should operate to drive system-level sustainability. In line with 8 major sustainable business model archetypes existing, this chapter first contextualizes them in TCF industries, and goes further to identify 5 key design elements (and underlying strategies) underpinning them. The knowledge of these key design elements (product, process, value network, relation, and consumption pattern), upholding a system thinking approach, will further assist both research and practice to strategically develop and improve the sustainable innovations and business models.
