“Together, we can create a sustainable industry that respects the environment and the people of this planet”
During the SUSTAINABLE SOURCING IN THE GARMENT SECTOR (SSGS) summit, organized by Mostafiz and the Embassy of the Netherlands in Bangladesh and held in Dhaka on 29th September 2016, Mostafiz highlighted the importance of sustainability as a driving force in the apparel industry.
At the Global Sustainable Fashion Week, held in Budapest on 8 – 11 April 2019, Mostafiz enthralled the audience with a presentation on “Sustainability in the Fashion Industry through Transparency & Collaboration – The Example of Bangladesh.”
His presentation gained recognition and plaudits for being one of the key players in the Bangladesh textile industry, and his role in promoting the subjects of transparency, equal treatment and sustainability.
In addition to founding the BANGLADESH DENIM EXPO trade fair, Mostafiz has applied himself to the creation of the SUSTAINABLE APPAREL FORUM (SAF) established to provide a platform in Bangladesh that promotes the sustainability agenda within the textile and apparel supply chain of the country. The objective of the Forum is to facilitate a meaningful exchange of knowledge to demystify issues surrounding sustainability for the benefit of factories and individuals.
During the second edition of the event, held in Dhaka on 5th November 2019, Mostafiz stressed the need for collaboration amongst all stakeholders in the textile and apparel industries and government and non-government bodies to truly advance the sustainability agenda in the apparel sector.
