Huntsman Textile Effects, a global provider of dyes and textile chemicals, and GIZ GmbH, a German federal agency that promotes sustainable development around the world, are joining forces to raise industry standards in the management of chemicals by textile mills in Bangladesh.
Ten mills have so far signed up to participate in the GIZ Chemical Environmental Management for Competitiveness Program. The cooperation was formalized Monday with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between Huntsman Textile Effects and the Promotion of Social and Environmental Standards, a textile industry initiative jointly developed by the governments of Bangladesh and Germany, and implemented by GIZ.
