Bangladesh has achieved remarkable progress in sustainable fashion, boasting 206 LEED-certified green factories.

This impressive lineup includes 76 platinum-rated and 116 gold-rated facilities, underscoring the country’s strong commitment to environmental stewardship.

In just the past six months, this growth has been especially notable with the addition of 24 new factories, comprising 16 platinum and 8 gold certifications.

Mohiuddin Rubel, Director of BGMEA and Managing Director of Bangladesh Apparel Exchange, and Additional Managing Director of Denim Expert Ltd.,

highlighted this expansion. He emphasized Bangladesh’s critical role in leading the global market towards more eco-friendly garment production.

Rubel further pointed out the importance of this commitment to sustainability, not just for commendation but also for the enduring success and viability of the industry.

A significant marker of this achievement is that 54 of the top 100 LEED green factories globally are now in Bangladesh.

This includes 9 out of the top 10, and 18 of the top 20, a milestone that is likely to draw more investment and partnerships.

This positions Bangladesh as a formidable global leader in sustainable manufacturing.

The surge in LEED-certified green factories in Bangladesh reflects the garment industry’s steadfast dedication to environmental sustainability, Rubel added.
