Feb '13
Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA), together with South-Asia Enterprise Development Facility (SEDF), has presented environmental compliance awards to 25 garment manufacturing firms.
 
The recipient companies of the award include Apex Spinning and Knitting Mills, Oeko Tex, Viyellatex, Knit Concern, Tusuka Processing and GMS Composite Knitting Industries, among others.
 
The awardees were selected by BGMEA and SEDF from 250 firms, based on analysis of compliance of environmental norms in washing, dyeing and finishing operations, undertaken in accordance with a joint two year environmental compliance programme launched in 2011.
 
The programme covered assessment of waste-water treatment control, noise, air and sound emission, green production techniques, chemicals and hazardous waste management and sludge management by the factories.
 
Speaking at the programme held to confer the award, Commerce Minister GM Quader called on all readymade garment factory owners in Bangladesh to adopt environment-friendly practices and provide more facilities to workers.
 
Factory owners should try to attain highest eco-compliance levels in greater interest of the nation and its citizens, he said.
 
It is important to ensure sustainability of the textile and apparel industry to ensure sustainable economic development of the nation, IFC-SEDF Country Manager Kyle Kelhofer said and added that successful implementation of eco-compliance programmes can help the sector to become more competitive in the international market.
 
BGMEA President Shafiul lslam Mohiuddin said all apparel manufacturers in the country would have to raise their eco-compliance levels to ensure sustainability of their businesses.
 
Managed by International Finance Corporation (IFC) in association with the UK's Department for International Development and the Norwegian Agency for Development Co-operation, SEDF works to facilitate growth of small and medium enterprises by helping improve their access to finance.
