Bangladesh's struggle with GHG emissions in textile and RMGBangladesh’s ready-made garment (RMG) sector contributes 15.4 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions while the textile sector emits 12.4 percent, leading in carbon emissions and posing a challenge to achieving GHG reduction targets set in the Paris Agreement. On the other hand, despite contributing significantly to the GDP, these industries suffer from operational inefficiency, exacerbated by the use of outdated machinery and ineffective energy management. The surge in industrial energy intensity raises concerns, casting a shadow over Bangladesh’s ability to manage escalating energy demands while meeting its GHG emission reduction commitments. Textile and RMG manufacturers grapple with insufficient financial incentives, a shortage of technical expertise, and an absence of an enabling environment, which hinder energy-efficient practices.
