Partnership for Cleaner Textile (PaCT) Program


06 November 2023, Mumbai

The PaCT program was launched in 2013 by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and various partners, including the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA), and a number of global fashion brands and retailers.
The program is funded by the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the Royal Danish Embassy.
The PaCT program aims to improve resource efficiency, reduce environmental impact, and promote sustainable practices in the textile industry.
The PaCT program has helped more than 338 factories to reduce freshwater consumption by 25 million m3/year and cut wastewater discharge by 21.08 million m3/year. These factories now save 2.5 million MWh/year in energy and avoid greenhouse gas emissions of up to 489,796 tons/year of CO2.
Role of BGMEA
As an implementing partner, BGMEA has been playing a crucial role in steering and implementing the PaCT program.
