- Analyse the circular economy framework from a social-ecological system resilience perspective in order to integrate with the planetary boundaries concept
- Explore how to translate the planetary boundaries concept to the operating scale of the textile industry, considering the implications of circular economy for individual fibre types.
- Evaluate the biophysical and socioeconomic implications of different fibre systems to inform fibre replacement and shifts to more sustainable production and trade patterns.
