Project Summary

Inclusive and sustainable growth is always a target of APEC economies, especially post COVID-19. In 2022, Thailand - the host of APEC - sets the priority of “Balance in All Aspects” with the Bio-Circular-Green Economy Model as the overarching thinking. 

Garment and textile sector is one of the industries that is under pressure of shifting to going green. “Greening" the garment and textile sector is one of the global trends that businesses implement to reduce waste and achieve inclusive and sustainable growth. 

In this regard, Viet Nam proposed to hold a 2-day Workshop on Promoting Green Garment and Textile Sector towards Inclusive and Sustainable Growth.  The main objective of the project is to share information, good practices and suggest recommendations on ways to promote green garment and textile sector towards inclusive and sustainable growth. Workshop might include a discussion on how to reduce GHG emission, implementation of circular economy and area of cooperation by garment and textile sector.

Relevance

Issues: Today consumers are becoming more aware of the need to protect the environment, and companies use these terms to promote their goods or services with eco-labels. Environmentally friendly (also eco-friendly, nature friendly, and green) are terms used to refer to goods and services, laws, guidelines and policies claiming to inflict minimal or no harm on the environment. In this context, green or environmental concerns have started to draw more and more attention in the garment and textile sector.

According to Geneva Environment Network[1] , fashion production makes up 10% of humanity’s carbon emissions, dries up water sources, and pollutes rivers and streams; 85% of all textiles go to the dump each year, and washing some types of clothes sends significant amount of microplastics into the ocean. The fashion industry produces between 2 to 8 per cent of global carbon emissions. Textile dyeing is also the second largest polluter of water globally and it takes around 2,000 gallons of water to make a typical pair of jeans. If nothing changes, by 2050 the fashion industry will use up a quarter of the world’s carbon budget. Textiles are also estimated to account for approximately 9% of annual microplastic losses to the ocean (UNEP, 2021). [2]

Environmental pollution and climate change are creating pressure during the development of the sustainable and green economy in general, green sector in particular, including garment and textile sector, towards inclusive and sustainable growth at both domestic and global levels. In other words, "greening" the garment and textile sector is a global trend that businesses must implement to achieve inclusive and sustainable development goals and increase exports.

Greening the garment and textile sector is essential for the sector to fully exploit opportunities arising from free trade agreements and participate deeply in the global value chain. For example, according to the President of Viet Nam Garment and Apparel Association, most fashion brands in the US, Japan and the European Union (EU) were now more demanding on the quality of products, adding that many importers required the production to be friendly to the environment, such as through water-saving and not using coal. They also required suppliers to use green and recycled materials to meet global consumer trends, meaning that manufacturers must be transparent in production and ensure product traceability, which was no longer an option but a mandatory requirement. These are all challenges, as well as a motivation for textile enterprises to improve themselves, seize opportunities and make an impressive transformation in the future. The use of clean energy in the journey of "going green" also helps reduce pressure on energy security, contributing to achieve inclusive and sustainable development.

Inclusive and sustainable growth is a long-time target of APEC economies. APEC 2022’s theme is “Open. Connect. Balance.” which relates to inclusive economies and sustainable economic growth, with the Bio-Circular-Green Economy Model as the overarching thinking.

Greening the garment and textile sector is one method used to achieve renewables, recycling and reducing waste, towards inclusive and sustainable growth. This project aims to hold a Workshop in Viet Nam in 2023 that help economies and stakeholders to share information, good practices and give recommendations on ways to promote green garment and textile sector towards inclusive and sustainable growth.

Eligibility and Fund Priorities: This project falls under one of five GPA funding priorities for 2022, which is “promoting inclusive and sustainable growth”.

Capacity Building: Through project’s outputs (Workshop; Summary report), the proposed project will help to enable participants from member economies – particularly developing economies – to exchange information, share good practices on promoting green garment and textile sector towards inclusive and sustainable growth. Workshop might include a discussion on how to reduce GHG emission, implementation of circular economy and area of cooperation by garment and textile sector.

Developing economies who send participants to the Workshop will benefit most since their participants’ capacities are built while economies that are unable to send participants may somehow get information from uploaded presentations and summary report.

Objectives

The main objective of the project is to share information, good practices and suggest recommendations on ways to promote green garment and textile sector towards inclusive and sustainable growth.

Alignment

Alignment to APEC: In the Chair Statement of the 2022 APEC Ministers Responsible for Trade Meeting, it is acknowledged that “the ongoing APEC efforts to support the Bio-Circular-Green (BCG) Economy as an approach for achieving an inclusive, balanced and sustainable recovery from COVID-19, long-term resilient economic growth, and environmental and climate objectives” and “appreciated the economic growth potential of bio, circular and green economy approaches”.

The second economic driver (Strong, Balanced, Secure, Sustainable and Inclusive Growth) of APEC Putrajaya Vision 2040 states that “we promote economic policies, cooperation and growth which support global efforts to comprehensively address all environmental challenges, including climate change, extreme weather and natural disasters, for a sustainable planet”. In order to achieve this objective, the 2021 Aotearoa Plan of Action indicates that economies will “cooperate in relevant APEC fora to develop, encourage and exchange best practice policies, and promote capacity building programmes, that address all environmental challenges - including climate change - and support sustainable growth”.

Therefore, by promoting green garment and textile sector, the project fits APEC 2022’s theme, which is bio-circular green (BCG) economy and contributes to address environmental pollution and climate change, towards sustainable development. The workshop is expected to help economies share relevant information, good practices and suggest recommendations on ways to promote green garment and textile sector.

Alignment to Forum: This project will contribute to the work of the Committee on Trade and Investment, as it relates to (i) Thailand’s CTI priorities (Bio-Circular Green Economic Model), (ii) inclusion and sustainability issues.

Description

1. Pre-Workshop Survey

We will conduct a survey in form of questionnaire before the Workshop in order to develop a view on the current state of “Greening” the garment and textile sector in the APEC region. The survey will be sent to all 21 economies’ CTI focal points for responses from (i) CTI focal points and/or (ii) participants that economies sent to attend the Workshop. The outcomes of the survey will be included in the Summary Report.

2) Workshop

A 2-day in-person Workshop will be held in Viet Nam in 2023.

We expect there will be 8-10 speakers/ moderators and about 60 participants attending the Workshop. The first day of the Workshop will be presentations of speakers, followed by Q&A Sessions. The second day of the Workshop will be presentations, Q&A and a Session of Recommendation. Each Session will take 60-90 minutes, including Q&A.

The Presentation may include the information, good practices on green garment and textile sectors towards inclusive and sustainable growth as well as disadvantages and consequences of green-house emissions have on environment. Workshop sessions may also include (i) presentations and discussions on the sustainable and green- development in garment and textile sector, how to satisfy the present needs of the sector without compromising the environmental standards, to ensure that the future generation can have a sustainable and green living; (ii) discussion on how to reduce GHG emission, implementation of circular economy and area of cooperation by garment and textile sector.

The Session on Recommendation with participation from panellists and participants will focus on suggestions at economy and APEC levels for consideration of activities/ policies to promote green garment and textiles. Organizers will encourage recommendations with substantial guidance on applicable actions or requirement on necessary resources to implement such recommendations. Also, the Organisers will try to include gender issue in the discussion sessions and encourage speakers to include gender-specific issues in relation to green garment and textile sector.

The Workshop will gather various stakeholders such as garment and textile- related government officials, business association (International Apparel Federation, International Textile Manufacturers Federation, economies; textile and apparel associations etc.), businesses (big firm and MSMEs in garment and textile sector), international organisations (for example World Bank, ASEAN, OECD, UNEP, etc) and/or researchers from APEC economies.

Overall, The Project aims to build awareness and capacity on for participants, especially the regulators, policy makers and businesses working on garment and textile sector; discuss on how to promote green and garment textile sector towards inclusive and sustainable growth. Session on recommendation will not only include further activities/ initiatives but organizers will also encourage participants to provide recommendations on actionable policy (policies) after the Workshop that can contribute to achieving the project’s goal.

The Post-workshop evaluation will gather participant responses on project outputs and outcomes that will assess whether the Workshop was successful in its aims (for example: whether the objectives have been met; whether knowledge, capacity and/or awareness level has been increased; and which recommendation or action the participants consider most relevant and applicable to their own economy/institution).

3)Workshop Summary Report

A summary report (ranging from 15-20 pages) with outcomes and recommendations from the Workshop on ways to promote green garment and textile sector towards inclusive and sustainable growth will be presented to CTI. Such report will be composed of the following, but not limited to, sections: introduction of the project; summaries of the presentations made at the Workshop, including best practices; summaries on discussions at the Workshop; suggested recommendations made by Workshop attendants and the project consultants. Participants will provide recommendations by 2 ways: (i) during discussions at the Workshop, (ii) at the Post-workshop Evaluation forms that are provided at the end of the Workshop.

This Report will be published as an APEC Publication.

Targeted audience of the summary report: project attendants, CTI, garment and textile- related government officials, business association (International Apparel Federation, International Textile Manufacturers Federation, economies; textile and apparel associations etc.), businesses (big firm and MSMEs in garment and textile sector), international organisations (for example World Bank, ASEAN, OECD, UNEP, etc) and/or researchers from APEC economies.

Purpose: summarise discussions and recommendations at the Workshop.

Outcomes:  

There are 2 expected outcomes: 

1.  Increased knowledge and awareness amongst participants in relation to green garment and textile sector and the suggestion of key policies, legal and regulatory settings needed for successful green garment and textile sector. The participants are expected to gain a more in-depth understanding of the green garment and textile sector through information and best practice sharing towards inclusion and sustainable development. Awareness level of participants will be measured by the Post-workshop evaluation; key policies, legal and regulatory settings will be made at Discussion session and written in the Summary report. 

2.  Improved coordination and collaborative actions to promote green garment and textile sector towards sustainable development in the APEC region. In the short term, the organisers expect these stakeholders can integrate knowledge and information absorbed from the Workshop to apply in practice. Participants from developing economies will also have a chance to learn about best practices from APEC economies, from which they can draw lessons, experiences to apply in their economy. In medium and long term, the recommendations made at the workshop on ways to promote green garment and textile sector towards inclusive and sustainable growth will be a resource/ reference guide for APEC economies to consider in developing policies at economy’s or APEC’s level. This outcome will be measured by question(s) in the Post-workshop Evaluation form, asking participants which recommendation they consider most relevant and applicable to their own economy. 

Beneficiaries: The first beneficiaries of the project:  

1. Government officials and policy-makers, businesses from APEC economies, who are directly involved in green garment and textile sector. They may come from Department, Regulation body, Agencies in charge of promoting garment and textile.

2. Policymakers from all APEC economies can learn from each other on applying green garment and textile through sharing information on best practices of policies and regulations. Business organizations also play key roles and will be engaged in the project.

3. Local and international experts from private sectors relating to garment and textile sector, business association, businesses (big firm and MSMEs in garment and textile sector). The expertise, number of years and level will be defined by the organisastions sending the participants. PO will send the invitation letter to the focal points of Working groups (CTI, SMEWG, etc) to invite the participant. PO will ensure that the APEC Non-Member Participation Process is followed, and delegates are approved by the fora well before the workshop.

4. Local and international experts from academic sector who has experiences in research in garment and textile sector. 

Secondary beneficiaries of the project are: Representatives from international/ regional organizations such as CTI, garment and textile- related government officials, business association (International Apparel Federation, International Textile Manufacturers Federation, economies; textile and apparel associations etc.), businesses (big firm and MSMEs in garment and textile sector), international organisations (for example World Bank, ASEAN, OECD, UNEP, etc) and/or researchers from APEC economies.

Dissemination

Hard copies (presentation of the Workshop) will be provided to participants if needed.  APEC’s official website will be the main one to upload the Summary report. Organizers will inform the participants during the Workshop to proactively get the final documents in APEC’s website. For participants, PO will provide soft copies of Workshop presentations through emails prior to the Workshop as well as hard copies of Workshop presentations at the Workshop venue.

Electronic copies of Workshop presentations and summary report will also be circulated to speakers and participants. All Workshop presentations and materials will be uploaded to Google drive (or Dropbox) and the link will be shared to speakers and participants to download prior to the Workshop. All the meeting documents may be uploaded at Meeting Document Database (MDDB) after the Workshop. Organizers will encourage participants to circulate documents domestically to assure effectiveness in dissemination. A project’s summary report will also be prepared and submitted to the CTI (ranging from 15 to 20 pages) with outcomes and recommendations from the Workshop will be presented to CTI. Target audience of the summary report: Workshop speakers and participants, CTI, garment and textile- related government officials, business association, businesses (big firm and MSMEs in garment and textile sector), international organisations (for example World Bank, ASEAN, OECD, UNEP, etc) and/or researchers from APEC economies. Given APEC’s strong focus on electronic and digital publishing, workshop material and other documents will be disseminated electronically as much as possible.

The Summary Report will be an APEC publication. APEC Publications Toolkit is guidance on how an APEC report should be written and presented. The summary report should comply with APEC Publication Guidelines, IP Policy, and Logo Guidelines.

No intention to sell outputs arising from this project.

This project can potentially addresses three of the five Gender Criteria (Skills, Capacity Building, Health; Leadership, Agency, Voice; and Innovation and Technology) as detailed in Appendix G of the Guidebook on APEC Projects, Edition 12. In particular:

a) The project shall contribute to supporting pillar #3 of women’s economic empowerment on “Skills, capacity building, and health”. In that regard, the project will help develop the knowledge and capacity of participating policymakers and regulators, busineses, especially women.

b) The project will also support pillar #4 on “Leadership, voice, and agency”, as female speakers (50%) are expected to join the workshop. It could improve information on female participators in green garment and textile sector. 

c)  The project will support pillar #5 on “Innovative and Technology”, which could suggest recommendations on solution to solve obstacles, especially difficulties faced by women in garment and textiles sector.  

Women is always known as the key player in garment and textile sector. According to the World Trade Statistical Review 2017, China is the top exporter of textile and clothing, contributing 37% and 36% of total world exports, respectively. Other APEC economies i.e. the US; Korea; Chinese Taipei; Hong Kong, China; Viet Nam and Indonesia are also among the leading exporters of textiles and clothing in the world. UNIDO’s International Yearbook of Industrial Statistics (2013) also stated that that young women constitute a big share of the labor force in the textile and clothing sector. According to their estimation, women constitute about 45% to as high as 90% of the employees in the sector.

Realizing the importance of women participation in garment and textile sector, PO will also consider to incorporate gender issues into the project. Women will be directly and actively involved in the project. Project proponents of this Workshop are women. The Workshop organizers will be careful to include women speakers and participants in the Workshop.  The organizers will encourage women to be involved during the preparatory stage and actual activity. Invitations sent to CTI focal points and other APEC fora will take due course. We are confident there will be robust participation by both genders in the project, particularly those leading sector and government organizations of great importance in garment and textile sector.

In addition, the project proponents will ensure that the Post-workshop Evaluation forms to be distributed at the end of the Workshop will include information on gender for disaggregating of data for project assessment and will help in evaluation of specific responses of women and men.

PO is committed to collect sex-disaggregated data for all speakers and participants (and not only the APEC funded) from the project event. This data will be included as part of the submission of the Completion Report to the Secretariat when the project completes and will serve to guide future POs on their own gender parity targets. This data will be used to assess compliance with the project’s gender targets at the conclusion of the project, with performance data shared with APEC members.

PO expected that at least 50% of Workshop participants and at least 50% speakers/ moderators will be female.

Linkages

Engagement: APEC CTI will take the leading role in implementing this project. information will be disseminated to other relevant fora to encourage their participation in the Workshop. Organizers will work closely with relevant regional and international organizations (ASEAN, OECD, UNEP, UNESCAP) to get inputs and enhance engagements.

Previous Work: Garment and textile sector is one of the leading export sectors for some APEC economies such as China, USA, Japan, Chinese Taipei, Viet Nam, Indonesia (World Trade Statistical Review 2017). This sector has contributed a lot to stable, confident communities and a healthy macro-economic environment. Garment and textile sector is a popular topic in APEC when there were many APEC projects touched on this project. For instance: APEC Capacity Building on Restructuring Women led MSMEs in Textile and Garment Sector in the New Era (2022), Enhancing the Competitiveness of Women-led MSMEs in the Garments and Textile Sector through Innovation and Entrepreneurship (2018), APEC Public-Private Workshop to Advance Understanding on Non-Tariff Measures (NTMs) in Textile and Garment Sector (2018), etc.  

However, there were few projects discussing on how to promote the green garment and textile towards sustainable development. Realising the scarcity of this topic, the Organiser decided to hold a Workshop discussing about it. The main objective of the project is to share information, good practices and suggest recommendations on ways to promote green garment and textile sector towards inclusive and sustainable growth.

 APEC’s Comparative Advantage: APEC is the best source of funding for this project because APEC has been working actively on garment and textile. The results of the Workshop will contribute to the overall APEC work.

Sustainability

APEC economies can take in recommendations and spread the experiences and lessons in a wider range. Experts can make use of results or outcomes of this project in expected future projects. Participants can create cooperative network or means of future exchange of ideas and discussions. Possible future actions to be reflected in the summary report will be discussed at CTI, in close consultations with other related APEC sub-fora. In the Workshop, since the final Session will be devoted to floor discussion, participants will be encouraged to suggest policy/ actionable recommendations, which will then be submitted to CTI for their review. This can be a valuable resource for economies and organizations to consider their future activities, actions, regulations.

Besides, since the beneficiaries of the workshop will be policy-makers/ regulators and businesses working in the garment and textile sector and/or researchers from APEC economies, it is important that these stakeholders share the Summary Report which include best practice and recommendations come out of the workshop to other relevant stakeholders (officials, businessman).

Project overseers will engage in dissemination and follow up engagement with project participants to ensure they feel equipped, have information they required.

The summary report will suggest next steps (future APEC Workshop, seminar, events, capacity building, study, research, survey etc.) based on the discussions of the Workshop. Such summary report will be submitted to CTI.
