Star Practices Made in Asia

Framework for Sharing Good Practices

 

Dear Members

 

PHMA is pleased to inform its valued members that this Association has been playing its imperative role in the advisory committee of Sustainable Textile of Asian Region (STAR). Other Associations include GMEA from Bangladesh, CNTAC from China, GMAC from Cambodia, MGMA from Myanmar. Sharing STAR practices is an excellent way to jointly tackle sustainability challenges in the textile and garment industry.

With support of the GIZ programme Social and Labour Standards in the Textile and Garment Industry in Asia (SLSG), the associations aim at collecting good practices among its member factories, of which a shortlist will be presented to the network of producing associations who will select the most innovative and successful ones. Those are the STAR practices, which will be shared and published regionally.

Subsequently, members are invited to kindly share their good practices in any one or more area mentioned as follows:

1.     Occupational Health and Safety (OHS)

2.     Building and fire safety

3.     Supporting/ promoting female workers and inclusion

4.     Environmental protection through sustainable chemical management or resource efficiency (water, electricity)

5.     Social dialogue between management and workers

 

Please provide your feedback as per attached Performa.

 

For your ready reference and idea a good practice of one of our PHMA member in respect to Fire and Safety Category is attached.

 

PHMA will appreciate your prompt response by 27th September, 2017.

 

Thanks & Best Regards,

 

 

Junaid Makda

Deputy Chief Coordinator
