Germany to help Pakistan improve textile industry standards


Pakistan and Germany have signed an agreement to improve labor, social and environmental standards in the Pakistan’s textile industry.

Germany would provide GIZ up-to €7,500,000 as German contribution for three years, according to Pakistani media reports.

The project aims to increase value-addition and competitiveness, and foster innovation by synergising the environmental, social and economic dimension of sustainability in the textiles and apparel industry. It will support digitalization of labor and human resource department’s (LHRD) downstream institutions like Punjab Employees Social Security Institution (PESSI), formulation and implementation of measures to ensure sustainable production, transform 15-20 companies that made use of good environmental practices, innovative technologies or labour standards to move to higher value addition or enter new markets, and initiate two campaigns on occupational safety and health (OSH), particularly for small and medium enterprises, to achieve international certification in labour and environmental standards.
