Vietnam aims to make textile industry ‘greener’

(VTV) – Many industries in Vietnam are adopting green production methods to maintain and expand their export markets, including the textile industry. Thanks to this industry’s transformation, many domestic enterprises have obtained green production certifications from strict markets.

Recognising the green production trend, this company has built factories, equipped them with modern machinery by European standards and convert production activities accordingly. It now has a global organic and recycled fabric product certification, thanks to sustainable production process, strict process regulation and raising employees’ awareness.

Tran Van Quy, Chairman of BOD, General Director, Trung Quy Group said that the process though challenging, has produced great results. We can improve product quality, expand market, gain customers’ trust and affirm the company’s value in the textile industry.

Applying green production is a prominent goal for the domestic textile industry to keep up with the global trend. However, some still face many difficulties in this transition because it requires changing the whole production chain. The successful businesses show the potential of Vietnam’s textile industry for green growth.

Pham Xuan Hong, Chairman of HCM City Textile and Embroidery Association said that in order to meet the requirements of trade agreements, it is necessary to make the environment greener and improve the quality of raw material sources.

“Businesses need to ensure transparency alongside their growth. The company’s green efforts such as using renewable energy, and saving water must be shown through digital management to be of value to consumers,” said the chairman of Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association, Vu Duc Giang.

The textile and garment industry will continue to develop the value chain for all processes, from yarn production to fabric and apparel, and apply green production methods. Their goal is to reach 47 billion USD in exports by 2023 and transform Vietnam into a global textile and garment hub.
