To adopt responsible industrial practices on sustainable and responsible business transformation, GIZ FABRIC Asia since July 2019 has been supporting the Asian textile industry in its transformation towards fair production for people and the environment. With a strong focus on promoting greater cooperation and knowledge-sharing, the programme has been implemented in Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Myanmar, Pakistan and Vietnam on below mentioned thematic areas for which the programme collaborated with government partners, industry stakeholders, workers, associations, academia and international buyers (brands).

FABRIC initiatives have improved productivity, sustainability performance, working conditions and compliance, mainly through capacity building of stakeholders in the textile and garment industry of Asia. The focused areas are Climate Action, Energy Efficiency, Water Use, Wastewater / Effluent, and Chemical Management. Moreover, to shape a better future towards sustainability and long-term growth, regional dialogues have been delivered via Sustainable Textile of the Asian Region (STAR) network and Asian Dialogue Series.

The FABRIC Regional Conference on Textile Sustainability (hybrid) is being organised in Pakistan to share the achievements of current phase of the project. The Asia Garment Hub (AGH), an online platform, will also be accentuated which is the most comprehensive repository of knowledge and tools on sustainability in the garment and textiles sector. Moreover, various breakout discussions are placed to deep dive into the evolving needs in textiles sector of the Asian region.

During the Conference, practical examples of good practises will be shared, the participants who successfully completed Cleaner Production Training, Climate Action Training and Factory Improvement Program on Chemical Management will be awarded certificates and a way forward of the follow up project FABRIC II will be shared.
