ECOLEBAN

Implementation of Environmental Management Systems and Eco-Labelling Schemes in the SMEs of the Leather Sector in Bangladesh

The leather industry is a fast growing and vital component of Bangladesh economy. However, the leather sector is very polluting and causes harmful impacts both on the environment and human health. A deep analysis to identify the needs and constraints of the sector shows that the core of the problem is that the leather industry in the country is dominated by SMEs with critical lack of expertise and capacity to respond to environmental problems.

This Project promotes resource efficiency and sustainability of the leather sector in Bangladesh throughout the whole value chain of the leather related products such as footwear and other leather goods.

Duration: 3/2014 - 3/2018

Total budget: EUR 2,089,982 (EU Contribution: 90%)
