BGMEA launches ‘Go Human, Go Green’ campaign with 7 pledges to bring change in RMG sector

11 March 2021: Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) has launched “Go Human, Go Green” campaign with 7 pledges to bring a difference in the livelihood of garment workers, community and environment, and thereby align the apparel industry with critical aspects of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Commerce Minister of Bangladesh Tipu Munshi, MP inaugurated BGMEA’s “Go Human, Go Green” at a program held virtually recently. BGMEA President Dr. Rubana Huq announced the 7 pledges made by BGMEA.

1. Pledge to Workers Education: The initiative drew much global attention and praise as well and got wide coverage among the international audience.

2. Pledge to Early Childhood Learning of Workers’ Children: While their parents are working, many children spend their whole day in the factory day care centers. BGMEA and Jaago Foundation have partnered in an initiative to provide online education for these children during the day time.

3. Pledge to Mental Health: Mental health has been identified as a key issue which was often overlooked. BGMEA has joined hands with “Moner Bondhu”, a platform which provides care for mental health and well-being service.

4. Pledge to Sustainability : BGMEA in collaboration with UNDP and GRI is conducting a survey on “Sustainability Reporting Study Mapping in 50 RMGs in Bangladesh” to develop a report highlighting the impact of Ready-Made Garment (RMG) factories on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

5. Pledge to Culture Export of Bangladesh : Exporting the culture of Bangladesh. Renowned Fashion designers like Anadil Johnson with her Jamdani bomber jacket collection, Rina Latif with her haute couture, Kuhu Plamondon with her Royal Bengal tiger inspired collection of athletic wear are the first three to have engaged with this project.

6. Pledge to Workers Health : BGMEA has taken massive number of steps to protect the workers and the industry from the ongoing pandemic which has brought a catastrophe to our life.

7. Pledge to Industry Innovation and Efficiency: Garment factories in Bangladesh usually tend to get the design from the brands and buyers and replicate due to deficiency in product development capacity. To keep pace with the changing demands, Bangladesh RMG industry also feels the need to embrace innovation in the production system.
