Sustainable Manufacturing

Since December 2020, YCA is leading a three-country study of sustainable manufacturing best-practices in the Apparel, Domestic Appliances, and the Food sectors. The country studies are designed to inform the development of a long-term regional strategy for engaging manufacturers and suppliers for global supply chains with facilities in the region, and building their capacity for responsible Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) business practices, allowing major retail brands to place orders for goods with local manufacturers. The 3-year project covers specialized inputs from AIT’s faculty and experts in the area of gender and development, environmental impact mitigation, and corporate social responsibility.

SDGs addressed: 1,5,8,10,12, and 17
