Environmental compliance survey begins in RMG units
Jan '11
Environmental compliance survey in the ready-made garments (RMG) sector has been initiated towards the close of last week to enhance the production capacity of eco-friendly apparels in the sector and draw more overseas customers.

This project has been initiated by the Bangladesh Export Oriented Garments Washing Industries Owners Association (BEOGWIOA), Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) and the South-Asia Enterprise Development Facility (SEDF).

SEDF is extending all possible assistance to the associations to organize environmental assessments on 250 industrial member units having washing, dyeing and finishing facilities. SEDF is also providing assistance to these factories to generate interactive database of the environmental compliance standards.

The compliance officers of the various RMG units are provided with training in order to conduct environmental assessments. This will help the associations to observe the scenario regularly.

Under the environmental compliance project, a survey is still in progress to find out the best effluent treatment plants (ETP). The environmental assessment is likely to be over by July 2011.
