BANGLADESH: GIZ and Huntsman aim to raise chemical standards
German federal agency Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) is joining forces with Huntsman Textile Effects in a bid to raise chemical management standards in Bangladesh.
The companies’ Chemical Environmental Management for Competitiveness Program will initially target ten textile mills in the country, offering managerial and technical training, audit and consultancy services, and implementation support from environmental management system experts.
The aim is to support the development of industry-wide chemical management best practices in Bangladesh, accelerating their adoption with the ultimate aim of supporting the industry’s environmental and economic sustainability.
Peter Gregory, brand & retail marketing director at Huntsman, said the company was “pleased to join hands with GIZ in Bangladesh to help local factories optimise their production efficiency and environmental compliance whilst also building local competence to enable continued adoption”.
