The Bangladesh government has undertaken initiatives of mass reforms for going green in the existing industries in the country, including its top earning ready made garment industry, Industries Minister Amir Hossain Amu said at a recent conference.

“We are pursuing green financing and green banking policy to finance low-carbon and resource-efficient small and medium enterprises and the supply value chains of our RMG industry,” Minister Amu said at the 5th Green Industry Conference for Sustainable Development in Bangkok on October 3, 2018.

“Our government has set up 100 eco-friendly special economic zones with state-sponsored green industrial standards for ETP (effluent treatment plant) and water treatment plants,” he said, according to a press release issued from Bangladesh embassy in Bangkok.
