Safe, Clean and Climate Friendly Factories: EHS+ Center in Bangladesh

Located in the heart of the Bangladeshi ready-made-garment (RMG) industry, ISC’s EHS+ Center in Dhaka supports the health and safety of women in factories. Trainings build the leadership and management skills needed to improve health and operational safety in the workplace.

Safe, Clean and Climate Friendly Factories: EHS+ Center in Bangladesh

The objective of this activity is to help drive the uptake of safe, clean, and climate friendly practices in Bangladeshi factories. The GDA will improve factory performance in health and safety, environmental management, resource efficiency and energy and carbon management (which ISC refers to collectively as “EHS+”); and subsequently it will establish a Bangladeshi-owned and operated, financially and operationally viable EHS+ Center. The activity will ensure that everyone from owners to plant managers, factory engineers to line workers, embraces sustainable practices that safeguard the health and well-being of employees, communities and the global ecosystem.
