Designing an Impact Investing Fund for Sustainable Textile Manufacturing

Client: International development organisation

We assessed options and designed the architecture of an impact investing fund aimed at supporting investments in factory modernizations, business process optimization and training of management and staff in the ready-made garment (RMG) supply chain.

The fund’s goal is to reduce the environmental footprint of RMG factories (primarily in Asia) while improving the productivity of workers (and the profitability of RMG enterprises) through improved social standards in factories and better living conditions for workers.

With the help of our analysis and advice on possible components of the fund, our client was able to begin testing and refining the concept and prepare for an official launch of the fund.
