Double Century in Sustainable Fashion by Bangladesh

Bangladesh reached a milestone in its journey towards sustainable industrialization on March 8, 2023, when the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) certified its 200th LEED Green Factory.

This is a significant achievement for Bangladesh, as it is now home to more LEED Green Factories than any other country in the world.

The 200th LEED Green Factory in Bangladesh is Lida Textile & Dyeing Limited, which is located in Kaliakoir, Gazipur. Lida Textile & Dyeing Limited is a platinum-rated LEED Green Factory, which means that it has met the highest standards of sustainability in terms of energy efficiency, water conservation, waste management, and indoor air quality.

The other 199 LEED Green Factories in Bangladesh are also committed to sustainability. They have all taken steps to reduce their environmental impact, such as installing solar panels, using energy-efficient lighting, and recycling water.

The certification of these 200 LEED Green Factories is a testament to the commitment of Bangladesh’s garment industry to sustainability. The garment industry is a major economic driver in Bangladesh, and it is important that it is environmentally responsible. The LEED Green Factories are setting a good example for other factories in Bangladesh, and they are helping to make the country a more sustainable place to do business in a sustainable fashion.

In addition to the 200 LEED Green Factories, Bangladesh also has a number of other sustainable factories. For example, the country has a number of zero-waste factories, which produce no waste. These factories use a variety of techniques to reduce, reuse, and recycle their waste.

Bangladesh is also home to a number of green apparel brands. These brands are committed to using sustainable fashion materials and practices in the production of their clothes.

The progress that Bangladesh has made in sustainable manufacturing is impressive. The country is well on its way to becoming a global leader in sustainable fashion.
