Beskrivelse

This research and capacity building project will investigate how the garment/textile value chains connecting Europe/Bangladesh are being
reconfigured in response to climate change. Our research will answer the following questions: How are the garment/textile value chains connecting Europe/Bangladesh being reconfigured in response to climate change, and what are the consequences for economic, social, and environmental upgrading in the garment/textile industries of Bangladesh?
The main research objective is to create insights into the actors pushing for decarbonization and value chain resilience efforts in the garment/textile
industries of Europe/Bangladesh; the drivers behind their engagement; the scope of their practices, experimentation, and collaboration; and the consequences for economic, social, and environmental upgrading in Bangladesh.

The project is headed by the Copenhagen Business School in partnership with Aalborg University Business School (DK), Roskilde University (DK), BRAC University (Bangladesh), and Institute of Business Administration, University of Dhaka (Bangladesh). Private sector partners include the Danish Ethical Trading Initiative and Danish Fashion and Textile.
