Cambodia unveils sustainable development roadmap in garment sector

Cambodia’s environment ministry recently unveiled the roadmap for sustainable development in the garment sector as part of the government’s focus on sustainable development. In the green industry scenario with a focus on sustainable consumption and production (SCP), the garment sector could raise real gross domestic product (GDP) by $2.7 billion between 2015 and 2030.

This growth would be decoupled from negative environmental impacts, resulting in a 46 per cent rise in the garment sector’s contribution to GDP and at the same time reducing negative environmental impact.

Environment minister Say Samal, who also chairs the National Council for Sustainable Development, said guided by the council’s Strategic Plan 2018-23, SCP of goods and services is one of the priorities of the green economy.
