The Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) joined hands with the Danish textile and fashion employer associations to launch a project called 'Step Up' to improve corporate social responsibility (CSR) and productivity in the garment industry of Bangladesh. This project is funded by DANIDA, a Denmark based development agency.

Step Up will also focus on improving environmental activities in small- and medium-sized garment factories that produce apparel for Danish buyers, Bangladesh media reports said.

A study will be conducted in 10 local factories to gauge their performance in terms of CSR and productivity. Based on the findings of this study, action plans will be developed to help the garment factories achieve the desired results. These results will also be shared with all the relevant members at the end of the project.

Md. Siddiqur Rahman, president, BGMEA thanked the Danish associations as well as DANIDA for initiating this project to improve the apparel industry of Bangladesh. (KD)
