Karachi, Pakistan-based mill Artistic Fabric and Garment Industries (AFGI) has announced that its state-of-the-art denim factories are now LEED Gold certified through the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design programme of United State Green Building Council (USGBC). AFGI’s units scored the highest rating points in Pakistan under USGBC’s sustainability parameters.

According to the manufacturer, part of the sustainability approaches not only the facilities, but also include reducing water and chemical usage, green garment finishes and recycling waste clothing and plastic bottles.

Last year, AFGI’s other flagship manufacturing facility received LEED silver certification. It’s worth mentioning here that the certification programme by USGBC assures that ‘no matter where a LEED project is, its certification is an achievement in green building that’s recognized around the world’ as well as ensures electricity cost savings, lower carbon emissions and healthier work environments in the manufacturing units and AFGI topped all these parameters to bag the Gold certification this time.

With a large-scale fully vertical denim operation, AFGI produces some of the most innovative denim products for top jeans brands worldwide.
