To promote sustainable water consumption practices in Pakistani textile units, the World Wide Fund for Nature-Pakistan (WWF-Pakistan) and the All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) recently held a seminar in Lahore as part of events leading to World Water Week, starting on August 27 in Stockholm with the theme ‘water and waste: reduce and reuse’.

Wayward patterns of resource consumption are leading to environmental degradation and leaving a bigger carbon footprint.

The event was part of an ongoing project called International Labour and Environmental Standards (ILES) Application in Pakistan’s SMEs, funded by the European Union and jointly implemented by WWF-Pakistan and the International Labour Organisation (ILO), according to a WWF-Pakistan press release.

With Pakistan being declared a water-stressed country, its primary focus should be on strategically developing the industrial sector, especially increasing the efficiency of the textile sector with small water footprints and high added value, Hammad Naqi Khan, WWF-Pakistan director general said.

APTMA secretary general Anis-ul-Haq said the textile industries should invest more in water-efficient technologies that lead to zero discharge of hazardous waste and rain water harvesting techniques. (DS)
