A significant step towards decarbonized fashion production in Bangladesh

More than 70% of the fashion industry’s GHG(GreenHouseGas) emissions come from upstream activities and current operations predominantly rely on non-renewable energy sources, such as petroleum, gas, oil, and coal. Changing the industry power supply to renewable energy requires new infrastructure solutions at scale. At COP28, BESTSELLER and H&M Group have pledged to invest in the first utility scale offshore wind project off the coast of Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. This groundbreaking wind project would be a significant step on increasing the availability of renewable energy in one of the fashion industry’s most important manufacturing countries. GFA(non-profit organisation Global Fashion Agenda) is calling for stakeholders in fashion industry and beyond to come together and engage in facilitating renewable energy solutions.

          For us, this is a great example of how a collaborative approach on sustainable financing solutions and policy work can go hand in hand to overcome industry-wide challenges. We are grateful for the engagement we have had with local stakeholders and excited to see our joint efforts coming to life. The nearshore wind park in Bangladesh is an important step for the transformation of the Bangladesh renewable energy market and we believe that this will contribute greatly to the decarbonisation of the garment industry as a whole.

                    The Kingdom of Bangladesh is highly populated and creating solutions that would decarbonize will really go a long way

                      @Kevin The insane population levels raise cause for alarm given the high levels of pollution in the air and the environment. Great to see a fashion line creating a sustainable solution
