Arvind Envisol to partner in Ethopia's green drive

Arvind Envisol, subsidiary of Arvind Limited, will partner with the Ethiopian government in its drive for green industrialisation. Arvind Envisol has inked MoU with the government to implement the Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) technology for industrial parks in the country. The initiative will boost Ethiopia's GDP and will create employment opportunities.

A zero liquid discharge water treatment plant with the capacity of treating 11 million litres of waste water per day has already been set up at Hawassa Industrial Park by Arvind Envisol, according to Ethiopian media reports.

The Ethiopian Investment Council (EIC) and Industrial Parks Development Corporation (IPDC) will also develop ten mega industrial parks in various parts of the country. In an attempt to lower negative effect on the environment, the government intends to use ZLD technology in these industrial mega parks. ZLD ensures that the industrial parks use the minimum amount of ground water and has a zero liquid discharge outside the park.

A study on environmental sustainability in Ethopia's textile and garment sector will be undertaken by the government of Ethiopia and Arvind. The study will focus on identifying various sustainable solutions and know the impact of the rapid industrialisation drive of Ethiopia. Various Ethiopian Universities have also signed MoU with the government to include a curriculum on sustainability in the wake of industrial development.

"The world has seen examples of several nations that, in a bid to boost economic growth, have ended up causing enormous environmental damage, eventually creating problems for their own people," said Punit Lalbhai, executive director, Arvind Ltd.

"The Green Industrialisation platform that Ethiopia is seeking to build, I believe, is a sustainable industrial development strategy for the whole of Africa to emulate. We are happy to partner with Government of Ethiopia in this landmark initiative and hope that these joint efforts will go a long way towards bringing greater prosperity to the people of this great nation, while preserving the environment at the same time," said Lalbhai.
