More about the organisations

Corporate Social Responsibility Centre Pakistan (CSRCP) was launched in 2010 to further sustainable practices and reporting in Pakistan. Since its inception, CSRCP has conducted itself as a central place for sustainability report consultancy, training, research, and advocacy. CSRCP became GRI’s Report or Explain Campaign Forum Partner in 2011, GRI Data Partner for Pakistan in 2013 and GRI Certified Training Partner in Pakistan, in line with its vision to further sustainable practices and reporting in Pakistan. CSRCP has been engaged with different clients for the advisory, preparation of sustainability reports, COP submission, training and assurances since 2011.

All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) is Pakistan´s premier and strongest industrial association representing the entire textile value chain from fiber to fashion. APTMA actively engages with the government in providing input into policy development and decision making for economic and industrial growth.

The Sustainable Production Centre (SPC) was established and inaugurated in 2015 by BMZ (Ministry of Economic Cooperation, Germany) to overcome various challenges faced by the textile industry in Pakistan, in particular energy efficiency, water & waste management, carbon/water footprints, labor productivity, OHAS, country perception/image and international compliance related to labor, social & environment issues. The ultimate goal is to achieve entire supply chain management based on sustainable and ethical practices. SPC aims to be the primary institution for Pakistan’s largest exporting and most labor intensive industry (i.e. textiles). This includes making it a greener and more sustainable industry across the entire value chain and helping Pakistan to improve its image to become the most compliant sourcing destination for textiles and clothing in the world.
