HANOI – The Sustainable Trade Initiative (IDH) and Apparel Impact Institute (Aii) have partnered to launch the Tier 1 Vietnam programme, which will expand on the work of the successful Clean by Design and Race to the Top projects.

The new initiative makes the case that positive environmental actions equate to greater financial savings, and so the two organisations spearheading this effort will work closely with garment suppliers and brands to reduce factory emissions in-line with the Paris Climate Agreement’s 1.5oC target.

“We have already seen the Race to the Top apparel programme succeed to identify savings opportunities up to 22 per cent of energy use in key textile suppliers in Vietnam. With the Tier 1 garment supplier programme can now scale this further and continue to reduce emissions in partnership with our supply chain,” commented Aaron Tam, senior manager, Environmental Capability Building, at Gap.
