Apart from giving priority to a low-carbon economy, Bangladesh has undertaken widespread reforms related to making existing and future industries, including those in the leather and readymade garment (RMG) sectors, environment-friendly, industries minister Amir Hossain Amu told the Fifth Green Industry Conference for Sustainable Development in Bangkok recently.

The conference was organised under the auspices of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP).

A green financing and green banking policy to finance low-carbon and resource-efficient small and medium enterprises and supply value chains of RMG industry is being pursued as well, Bangladesh media reports quoted Amu as saying at the conference.

Hundred eco-friendly special economic zones have been set up by the government with green industrial standards for plants treating effluent and water, he said. (DS)
