We Promote Sustainable Manufacturing

Bangladesh Trade Development Council believes that a nation can only prosper if the corporations and businesses within that nation are working for the future. BDTDC is committed to supporting, promoting, and encouraging manufacturers who are strictly adhering to the guidelines set forth by the United Nations for manufacturing.

The concept of Corporate Sustainability is not new. In fact, Corporate Sustainability has long been in practice to help corporations with business longevity. The new United Nations guidelines take that concept along with new, greener ways of doing business to lessen the environmental harm done during by corporate manufacturing.

The basis of corporate sustainability is the values that a business or industry operates on. A dedication to the future well being of a business or industry is connected to how willing it is to adopt the principles of protecting the environment, defending human rights and labor, and fighting against corruption within the business.

The BDTDC firmly believes in supporting new and existing corporations and manufacturers that are doing business not only to lessen the environmental footprint of their industry, but whom are also following human rights and labor guidelines set forth by the United Nation. BDTDC believes that by following these guidelines, we are building a stronger nation and a better future.

Corporate sustainability is not limited to just to the environment, but also caters to human rights, labor, and anti-corruption. A sustainable business is one that respects and implements practices and procedures that protect the environment and it's employees and labor force. A sustainable business is one that also recognizes and believes in adhering to anti-corruption laws, and takes steps to avoid corruption in and out of business.

A business that wishes to have the support of the BDTDC should comply with the guidelines set out by the UN's Global Guide to Corporate Sustainability, including:

Adapt and implement a preventative approach to face environmental related challenges.
Introduce plans to accept responsibility toward the environment and nature
Emphasize the development and support the use of more environmentally friendly technologies in their business.
Support and practice human rights as well as protect the human rights of workers within the business or industry.
Ensure that no one within the business, including the employees, are abusing human rights
Maintain the freedom of the association and the right to collective bargaining.
Must not practice any form of discrimination in regards to occupation and employment
Must not participate in any form of forced or compulsory labor
Must not support or use any form of child labor
Should not support, endorse, encourage, or participate in any type of corruption, including bribery and/or extortion
BDTDC highly promotes-
The sustainable businesses.
