Sweden & CPD team up for green apparel initiatives

The Sweden embassy in Dhaka and the Centre for Policy Dialogue (CPD) have united for a project with the objective to enable a green transition in Bangladesh’s readymade garments (RMG) industry.

The Sweden and CPD partnership will also ensure a ‘just transition’ in the apparel sector, meaning that an array of social mediations will be made to protect workers’ rights and increase their livelihoods.

Christine Johansson, Head of Development Cooperation at the Swedish embassy and Fahmida Khatun, Executive Director of the CPD, recently signed the agreement on behalf of their respective parties at the Swedish embassy.

Johansson said, “Sweden is dedicated to increasing the competitiveness of Bangladesh’s textile and apparel industry through better social and environmental compliance.”

The project’s key aim is to facilitate climate-neutral growth and create productive employment opportunities for women and youths in the country, Johansson added.

Highlighting the project’s importance, Fahmida said that ensuring employment for women and youths alongside a green transition are crucial for sustainable economic growth.

Bangladesh is committed to securing sustainable economic growth and so, ensuring environmental compliance in the industrial sector can help the country achieve its goals in this regard.
