Countries  I  Bangladesh

In Bangladesh, Prakruthi identified local partners to improve the social and environmental situation in the garment and tea sector. In close cooperation with civil society and research organisations, Prakruthi is developing a training program for trade unions and NGOs to initiate partnerships with business.

 
Stakeholder analysis

In order to assess the opportunities and challenges of adopting CSR as a pathway to sustainable production, it is necessary to look closely at which stakeholders are most influential in the tea and garment value chains. Who governs the chain and sets the CSR rules? This could be stakeholders both internal and external to the industry/sector in question. Internal stakeholders might include retailers, buyers, distributors, importers, exporters, producers, export/producer associations, local traders, raw material producers. External stakeholders include exporter country regulators, importer country regulators, policy makers (exporter or importer country), worker organisations, NGOs and the media.

 
Business support

Prakruthi cooperates with companies to develop sustainability strategies. It seeks to promote CSR frameworks and develop tools to involve Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in its sustainable value chain projects. Prakruthi provides support to companies in designing long-term sustainable supply chain transformation strategies.

 
CSO support

Prakruthi plays a crucial role in enhancing the capacity of civil society organizations (CSOs) for developing, monitoring and implementing the various codes of conduct and standards systems adopted by businesses. Furthermore, Prakruthi is developing the capacity of smallholder farmers, improving their position in the supply chain with fairer terms of trade and market access.
