Bangladesh Achieves The Milestone Of  200 Green Garment Factories1 min read

Bangladesh has reached a remarkable milestone in its eco-friendly industrialization, as it now reportedly has 200 green garment factories certified by the US Green Building Council (USGBC), a non-governmental organization that promotes energy-efficient building design.

The latest additions are Lida Textile & Dyeing Limited and Liz Fashion Industry Limited, both in Gazipur. They have reportedly received the platinum-rated LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, the highest recognition for green buildings.

Bangladesh is home to 13 out of 15 top LEED green factories in the world. These factories use renewable energy, recycle water and waste, improve indoor air quality, and ensure worker safety and well-being.

In 2022, reportedly 30 garment factories received LEED certification. In 2023 so far, 18 factories have secured the prestigious recognition.
