The history of Industrial Revolution dates back to as early as the eighteenth century. But Bangladesh, a young country which achieved its independence just in 1971, observed the growth of industrial and manufacturing sectors within itself from not too long ago. Its garment industry has witnessed phenomenal growth over a short period of time.
Bangladesh is now not only the second largest readymade garments producing country in the world but also it is taking lead in green garment business. Garment factories of Bangladesh are going green in phasing with eco- friendly technologies to meet the growing global demand for green products. Among the top 10 highest rated apparel factories in the world at least 6 are originated from Bangladesh.
Remi Holdings Ltd, a sister concern of the Bitopi group has recently achieved LEED Platinum certification under the category LEED: BD+C: New Construction, with a score of 97 points, making it the highest rated green RMG factory in the world. The highest rated LEED Platinum washing plant in the world namely Genesis Washing, world’s highest rated knit factory Plummy Fashions and the highest rated denim fabric mill Envoy Textiles are also located in Bangladesh.
Moreover, Tarasima Apparels Ltd - the highest rated LEED Platinum RMG factory and washing plant under the category LEED O+M: Existing Buildings, and Vintage Denim Studio -- the highest rated jeans manufacturing unit in the world – are too situated in Bangladesh.
