Written by John Mowbray

MILAN - Benetton has launched a new sustainability initiative aimed at empowering women in the textile sectors in Bangladesh and Pakistan. The Italian apparel retailer will support more than 5,000 women employed in Bangladesh's ready-made-garment (RMG) sector and a further 1,500 women in Pakistan as part of its Sustainable Livelihood Project which will operate under Benetton's Women Empowerment Program (WEP). The project includes a two-year calendar of initiatives aimed at empowering home-based female workers in the two countries.
