Bangladesh firms join sustainable textile initiative

Written by John Mowbray

DHAKA - Four companies from Bangladesh's ready-made garment (RMG) sector have joined the Partnership for Sustainable Textiles which was recently established by German Federal Development Minister Dr Gerd Mueller with the aim of bringing about environmental and social improvements in the global textile supply chain. The four companies - DBL Group, Niagara Textiles Ltd, Saiham Knit Composite Ltd. and JMS Holdings – have a combined annual turnover of EUR 580 million and employ 35,000 people according the German Embassy in Dhaka. The Embassy says the four businesses have already been collaborating with GIZ, the German development agency and KfW, the German development bank "for many years to improve their social and environmental standards."
