Countdown in Turkey For Clean Production in Textile

Sustainable production is the leading focus of today for every industry including textiles. While the new regulations closely concern all units from production to exports, Türkiye has also accelerated its efforts to improve production conditions and leave a more livable world for future generations. According to these regulations, textile is one of the primary industries based on their consumption obviously.

As we remember, in December 2022, Republic of Türkiye Ministry of Environment, Urbanization and Climate Change published a circular order called Applications for Clean Production in Textile. This circular aims to reduce the environmental impact of the textile sector by preventing pollution and implementing clean production technologies.

In this context, the first applications have to be start until 15th January of 2024 and the first reports will be sent in March 2024 by facilities with a capacity of 10 tonnes/day. For the next years, according to their capacities, other textile factories will also start to report to the Provincial Directories of Environment, Urbanization and Climate Change.
