H&M organizes ‘Sustainability Summit 2018’ in Dhaka

September 19, 2018

Hennes & Mauritz AB (H&M), a Swedish multinational clothing-retail company known for its fast-fashion clothing, recently organized ‘Sustainability Summit 2018’ in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Day by day sustainability issues are being more popular and inevitable for the textile and apparel industry. At the same time, to achieve sustainability in all aspects, world leaders are coming forward. In this regard, the United Nations Development Program has declared the Sustainable Development Goals, a collection of 17 global goals, which are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all

Of the 17 sustainability goals, five seems to be ringing most relevant among brands and retailers. These are responsible consumption and production; climate action; decent work and economic growth; gender equality; and clean water and sanitation.

The SDGs are the one global roadmap for Sustainability, and the hope is that as more brands adopt the goals into their own operations, an identifiable transformation in the apparel industry will actually start to take shape.

Yesterday on 12 September, H&M organized ‘Sustainability Summit 2018’ at Le Méridien hotel in Dhaka, Bangladesh where different stakeholders of the textile and apparel sector participated. The summit started at 9.00Am and closed at 4.30pm.
