More than 1000 participated in the Sustainable Apparel Forum (SAF) that ended recently in Dhaka. It was the first ever symposium devoted to transfer of knowledge and networking around the topic of more sustainability in the textile industry. The programme hosted by Bangladesh Apparel Exchange focused on the theme 'Making sustainability easier'.

"The industry has already made commendable strides in the area of sustainability. Presence of already 67 LEED certified green garment factories in the country while 222 more are in the offing is the telltale evidence the sector’s steady move towards sustainability. The SAF wanted to accelerate the momentum within the industry through education, awareness and reducing knowledge gap," said founder chairman and CEO of SAF, Mostafiz Uddin.

Over 30 national and international speakers discussed about various issues such as Saving water, resources and cost-The must knows for our factories, Energy efficiency-How to optimise energy consumption and reduce costs, Green factories and Sustainable financing. The objective of the sessions was facilitating a meaningful exchange of knowledge to make sustainability easier to be exercised by factories and individuals.

"The sessions were devised to discuss practical aspects of the daily operation at factories, rather than general discussions, to take Bangladesh a step forward as a responsible sourcing destination in the global map," Mohiuddin Rubel, managing director of Bangladesh Apparel Exchange said. (RR)
