The textile project’s vision is “transforming the textile sector in Vietnam and engaging sectoral and environmental governance in order to bring social, economic and conservation benefits to the country and the entire Mekong region”. This vision will be achieved by making textile businesses more active participants in the Mekong River resource planning and management, as well as in the sustainable energy planning, by working directly on impact reduction and financial solutions to scale best practices, and by creating an opportunity for these businesses to discuss collective action to achieve sustainable investment and development in the textile sector.
