Thanks to its textile division, Tremplin, a major player regarding integration through financial activity in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, has joined Techtera. The association has 430 employees, of which 260 have integration contracts. The organisation launched the project “Textile 360” at the end of 2022. The main collector for the region, Tremplin undertakes to stop the export of used textiles and reduce the landfilling of waste textiles to less than 0.5% by 2025. Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes is the first French region to make this commitment.
To change the model, several strategies exist. Reusing textiles is a priority, with a target of 30%. Concerning the recycling of waste, an ecosystem of around fifteen industrial partners has been organised to find outlets for all this waste. Multi-partner experiments are being carried out to build sustainable recycling systems locally. The aim of Tremplin is to provide good quality textiles for upgrading; thus, making it possible to reinject recycled raw materials into production.
