BGMEA hosts Training of Trainers Session to drive circularity in Bangladesh’s RMG Sector

The Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) hosted a two-day Training of Trainers (ToT) session on March 18th and 19th, 2024, at the BGMEA Complex. 

The initiative, aimed at driving the industry towards circularity amidst current challenges, witnessed enthusiastic participation from representatives of factories and academia.

Led by experts from Circle Economy, including Apoorva Shankar and Ola Bąkowska, in collaboration with esteemed scholars from the Bangladesh University of Textiles (BUTEX) and an expert from Reverse Resources, the session focused on instilling the principles of circularity within the RMG sector.

Attending the opening ceremony of the training session, BGMEA President Faruque Hassan underscored the pivotal role of the training sessions in enhancing the capacity of local industry professionals. Their expertise is crucial in driving the transformation towards a circular apparel industry in Bangladesh.

The ToT session was meticulously crafted to equip attendees with actionable insights and practical tools necessary for navigating the paradigm shift towards circular economy practices. This collaborative effort underscores a collective commitment to driving sustainable innovation and resilience within Bangladesh's RMG landscape. 

With the guidance from Barrister Vidiya Amrit Khan, Director in Charge of BGMEA Circular Economy Initiatives, this initiative aligns with the objectives of the SWITCH to Circular Economy Value Chains (SWITCH2CE) project, which aims to support micro, small, and medium-sized suppliers in embracing circular economy practices. 

The Training of Trainers session signifies a significant milestone in Bangladesh's journey towards circularity, highlighting BGMEA's pivotal role in spearheading sustainable initiatives within the RMG sector.
