The Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) and the Circle Economy have entered into a partnership to accelerate the transition of Bangladesh’s garment and textile industry towards circular economy.
Faruque Hassan, President, BGMEA and Hilde van Duijn, Head of Global Value Chains, Circle Economy signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in this regard at the Amari Hotel in Dhaka on September 3.
The collaboration between both parties aims to enable greater coordination in regard to sharing expertise, raising awareness and disseminating knowledge to enable BGMEA members to adopt and implement circular strategies.
The parties aim to collaborate within the context of the SWITCH2CE project, specifically on the creation and dissemination of the capacity building programme.
Areas of cooperation identified in the capacity building programme include exchanging knowledge, sources and insights on the value chain for (post-industrial) textiles in Bangladesh, and disseminating the Circularity Game as the tool to assess current awareness and knowledge on circularity amongst BCMEA members.
