Saving water in the garment industry, Bangladesh

Textile washing, dyeing, and finishing currently use large amounts of water, energy, and chemicals which we are committed to reducing.

We signed up to the Partnership for Cleaner Textiles Programme, which is run by the International Finance Corporation (IFC). Our goal is to establish a world class water, energy and chemical management practice in Bangladesh that will benefit everyone. Since starting this programme in 2013, eleven of our mills have implemented recommended changes and as a result each year they have collectively saved 2.1 million cubic meters of water and 154,851 MWh of energy.

To build on the success of this programme we will be starting the second phase of this in Pakistan in 2018
