Vietnam is implementing a project to improve the eco-friendliness of the local textile and apparel industry. The Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association (VITAS) and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) recently organised a meeting in Hanoi for the former’s environment committee to find out modes to improve the sector’s environmental responsibility.

VITAS vice chairman Truong Van Cam said the garment-textile sector raked in $31.7 billion and $36 billion in exports in 2017 and 2018 respectively and has an export target of $40 billion this year.

However, it is also among the biggest greenhouse gas emitters, apart from facing serious social and environmental problems that have affected its reputation, he admitted.

WWF Vietnam and VITAS have been working together to carry out a project to improve water management and energy sustainability in the sector, according to a news agency report.

This project, being implemented from 2018 to 2020, looks to transform the sector into a sustainable and environmentally responsible industry. (DS)
