UK textile sector subject to new government emissions regulations

2022-09-01

The UK Government has established a new regulatory framework to boost industrial emissions standards and reduce air pollution for the textiles and chemicals industries.

The textiles and chemicals industries in the UK will be required to adopt sustainable best practices under the Best Available Techniques framework launched this week as the government looks to reduce emissions and improve the environmental performance of businesses.

“Tackling emissions is essential to reduce the damaging effects of air, water and land pollution on people and the environment,” said Environment Minister Steve Double. “The new framework and collaborative approach will ensure higher standards for industrial emissions across the UK and a more effective governance structure to support industry in finding the best available techniques to meet these standards.

“This builds on the wide range of actions we are already taking through our existing legal framework to drive down pollutants and improve public health and the environment.”
