GHG Accounting Training for Textile and Garment Sectors
Climate change has taken centre stage among the key global challenges for the 21st Century. Transparent and credible information on GHG emissions of sectors, enterprises and products is needed to guide the development and evaluation of appropriate mitigation options. Methodologies, protocols and standards have been developed to account for GHG emissions in market like fashion. Brands in the consumer goods sectors, including apparel and footwear, are among the global pioneers in fostering GHG accounting in their international supply chains.
To complement the ongoing Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production (RECP) assessments in 15 demonstration enterprises in textile and garment sectors, further topical training on GHG accounting is now scheduled to introduce international best practice methods and protocols for GHG accounting, with special reference to the textile and garment sectors. The 2 day international training will provide an overview of opportunities, benefits and drivers for compiling GHG accounts, also known as carbon footprint. Moreover, international best practice methods and techniques for GHG accounting will be covered in detail, along with applications from textile and garment enterprises. The workshop targets participation of a total of about 60 textile industry professionals, including a mix of industry representatives (quality, environment and production management), RECP programme (associate) experts, and representatives of programme stakeholders (including as appropriate CTB, textile and garment school and industry associations, and government).
