China Takes Serious Actions Against Textile Polluters
Chinese authorities are taking hard actions to fight against textile industry pollution as a recent report shows that enterprises and manufactures in China who caused serious pollution were fined a total of USD 38.3 million in the first quarter of 2017. Many of these enterprises and manufacturers were operating in China’s textile Industry.
China received 33,000 tip-offs on environmental violations caused by enterprises and industrial manufacturers and issued fines worth over USD 963 million, detaining 720 people in more than 800 cases. Total fines were up by 56% compared to the previous year.

Bangladesh Shows Strong Commitment to Tackle Textile Industry Pollution
Water pollution is currently the number one challenge faced by the fast-growing textile and apparel industry in Bangladesh. Industrial pollution accounts for 60% of pollution in the Dhaka watershed, and the textile industry is the second largest contributor. Textile manufacturing in Bangladesh generates as much as 300 metric tons of wastewater per ton of fabric manufactured, with a suite of harmful chemicals.
With the help of eco-friendly textile production program PaCT, Bangladesh has achieved several results in tackling textile pollution, including an allocation of $200 million for a Green Transformation Fund, which helps textiles and apparel manufacturers to implement environmentally-friendly processes and technologies.
