Vietnam: an environmental time-bomb?

Written by John Mowbray

NEW YORK  Apparel brands sourcing from Vietnam should use their buying power to ensure suppliers are implementing proper environmental measures – that's the view of Linda Greer from the US-based Natural Resource Defence Council. Vietnam is poised to see a dramatic growth in its textile industries, due to the pending Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) free-trade agreement as well as the likely decline of China as a textiles exporter. Vietnam's textile dyeing and finishing sector is forecast to grow significantly, however, recent statistics from Vietnam's Ministry of Industry and Trade showed that just 42 of 639 industrial clusters in Vietnam currently have wastewater treatment systems.
