FASHION VALUE CHAIN

The stakeholders have identified some issues as current challenges in enhancing Bangladesh’s apparel sector’s sustainability during the post-pandemic (COVID-19) recovery stage, including easier and greater access to finance, long-term sustainability plan, and removing knowledge gap that prevents smaller manufacturers from getting financing.

The Policy Research Institute and the International Finance Corporation recently hosted a concerned dialogue on enhancing the environmental sustainability of Bangladesh’s RMG sector in Dhaka. Government officials, representatives from international apparel brands and industries, and other stakeholders participated.

Executive Director of the Policy Research Institute Ahsan Mansur spoke as the event’s keynote speaker and concentrated on the possibilities for rooftop solar power, lowering input materials through improved resource efficiency, recycling, and reusing waste.
