As consumers all around the world and leading brands are placing ever more importance on good factory environments and environmental sustainability, Bangladeshi RMG companies has started making investment to turn their factories more environmentally friendly which will bring long term benefits.

It is encouraging seeing such investment which helps reduce carbon emissions as well as saving water being supported by Spain’s Zara-Inditex, one of the world’s largest apparel retailers, with the help of the IFC backed Partnership Agreement on Cleaner Textiles (PACT) program.

The new unit is equipped with a full-fledged biological ETP solution that can be used to recycle effluents and convert it to organic fertiliser.

The government need to do more to promote the building of such factories by supporting tax incentives and allowing more duty-free import of equipment required to establish eco-friendly factories.

The Ginat Group’s latest venture includes state-of-the-art environmentally friendly energy-saving and water-saving technolgies as part of a new fully vertically integrated composite knit unit designed to produce 25 tonnes of fabrics a day.

Other large RMG manufacturers, including ABA Group, Envoy Textile and Viyellatex have been undertaking similar initiatives to build greener factories.

Although such moves have typically involved higher upfront costs, the companies’ investments in purpose-built green factories are justified by reducing long-term maintenance costs and increasing their attractiveness to global buyers and consumers.

Such initiatives likely to help boost the competitiveness of Bangladeshi products in the global marketplace.
