Abstract [en]

Background – For the linear consumption pattern and increasingly higher demand for textile and fashion products textile wastes have become the prime issue nowadays. The industry stakeholders, academia and policymakers are seeing the Circular Economy as a solution and the fashion brands are also going for that to achieve a sustained competitive advantage. At this stage, challenges exist to guide the circular initiatives of the industry in the right direction with proper definition, measurement and monitoring.  

Purpose - The purpose of this study is to develop the KPI framework for the brands that helps them to align their organizational goals with EU Taxonomy while adapting CBM. 

Methodology – The qualitative study follows an exploratory approach with an abductive reasoning strategy to fulfil the research purpose. Primary data include semi-structured interviews, which are complemented by secondary data documents, and both were analysed qualitatively via thematic analysis.  

Findings – The data reveals the circularity KPIs that the brands are following along with other circularity initiatives to integrate Circular Business Models into their businesses. The study also finds out how many tiers the fashion brands are going to achieve a collaborative circular supply chain. 

Contributions – Through the developed frameworks, this study has theoretical, practical and societal contributions. Along with the KPI framework for the fashion brands, this study provides advanced knowledge on the existing and future KPIs that are aligned with the EU Taxonomy and Circular Economy Action Plan. From this study, the industry gets a clear guideline to define, measure and monitor their KPIs. This thesis also connects the textile and fashion industry with the EU Taxonomy which is a strong contribution to the policy as well. Finally, the dedicated social KPIs part provides a substantial contribution to a very under-discussed area of social sustainability.
