CHALLENGE

Large clusters of textile factories in Bangladesh are extracting large volumes of ground-water, causing the groundwater table to drop rapidly. PaCT attempts to introduce Cleaner Production technologies in these factories in two stages: basic and deep-dive. Download brochure

SOLUTION

Working on contract from Unitrend Limited, Purplewood developed stakeholder analysis, stakeholder engagement plans and a communication strategy for PaCT. Developed under the campaign were factory advocacy materials, PaCT journey infographic, various manuals and resource guides. A website with resources for factories and apparel buyers was also developed.

RESULT

Some 25 factories had signed up for implementation of Cleaner Production programs and were generating savings in water, electricity and gas. Rapid depletion of groundwater has also been stemmed.
