AEPC Indian Apparel Industry Sustain Ability (AISA) ProgrammeApparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC), India’s official body of garment exporters, has recently launched the Indian Apparel Industry Sustain Ability (AISA) Programme. The program aims to make the Indian garment industry ‘sustainable’ and eco-friendly through guidelines to deploy sustainable production processes. The launch ceremony of the AISA programme was organised at New Delhi on July 12.

Apparel companies like Shahi Exports, Global Mode & Accessories Private Limited and Marks & Spencer also attended the launch event. They also presented case studies on various sustainable practices in the garment industry.

Explaining the significance of the programme, Ashok Rajani, Chairman – AEPC averred, “Through Indian Apparel Industry Sustain Ability (AISA) Programme, we intend to inculcate and encourage this process – where just doing is not enough but bringing measurability and self-impact assessment is also important. If we can harness the industry’s collective energy, adaptability and capacity for innovation, we can play a key role in creating a sustainable, fair and low-carbon world.”

Through the programme, the AEPC aims to encourage higher involvement of the garment industry in taking up sustainable initiatives. This guide stresses on creating a network of individuals and institutions committed to implementing the sustainable practices across the entire apparel value chain. All in all, it would help to reduce the impact of apparel manufacturing on the environment.

The apex body further informed that the Programme would suggest actions to overcome hurdles that restrict the garment industry from being sustainability-compliant at every level of manufacturing.
