In a bid to reduce carbon emissions in manufacturing apparel goods, Bangladesh apparel manufacturer, Denim Expert, has joined hands with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, according to a press release issued recently.

Climate change is a much talked-about issue right now, which is greatly impacting the ecosystem, and global consumers are more cautious about the environment and sustainability, said Mostafiz Uddin, managing director of Denim Expert Ltd.

Considering the betterment of earth for the next generation, Denim Expert Ltd joined the Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action alongside other brands and suppliers, he added.

Denim Expert Ltd is the first denim company in Bangladesh which has joined the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change). It is urgently taking climate action in line with the goals established by the Paris Agreement of 2015.

"The science is clear. Climate change is happening fast and that is why Denim Expert Ltd has joined the Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action. We pledge to limit our Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and support the world, reaching climate neutrality by 2050," the release stated. "The ultimate objective of the convention is to stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that will prevent dangerous human interference with the climate system."

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is an international environmental treaty, which came into force on 21st March 1994, having being ratified by a sufficient number of countries.

The parties to the convention have met annually from 1995 in Conferences of the Parties (COP) to assess progress in dealing with climate change. In 1997, the Kyoto Protocol was concluded and established legally binding obligations for developed countries to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by 2008–2012.

The 2010 United Nations Climate Change Conference produced an agreement stating that future global warming should be limited to below 2.0°C, relative to pre-industrial levels. In 2015 the Paris Agreement was adopted, governing emission reductions from 2020 onwards, through commitments of countries in Nationally Determined Contributions, lowering the target to 1.5°C. The Paris Agreement entered into force on 4 November 2016.
