“Very loose” – textile effluent legislation in Indonesia

Written by Brett Mathews

JAKARTA – Greenpeace has expressed concern about the "very loose" environmental legislation relating to the burgeoning Indonesian textile industry. The NGO said the country's current textile effluent standards only cover a limited range of parameters and chemicals, which "do not reflect the reality of complex industrial effluents and the range of hazardous chemicals employed by the textile-manufacturing sector." Greenpeace said the country lacks the "capacity to detect violations of the standards and to respond quickly and decisively when violations occur."
