Terms of Reference – Environmental Capacity Building Services with Textile Mills in Vietnam

On the basis of these Terms of Reference, IDH aims to select a party to conduct environmental capacity building services with textile mills in Vietnam.

IDH is soliciting competitive proposals from service providers for capacity building services for the Race to the Top Program in Vietnam. The Race to the Top Program strives to catalyse the growth and expansion of equitable and sustainable apparel and footwear industry in Vietnam and is soliciting experienced Service Providers to provide capacity building services for the Mill Improvement Project at factories (particularly mills, as well as other facilities with wet processing) in Vietnam in the following areas – energy efficiency, water consumption, air emissions, chemical management and wastewater effluent treatment.

The current Mill Improvement activities of the Race to the Top program have been running for the past three years and business case examples can be seen when looking at a number of the first textile mills going through the program. Best environmental practices have been implemented throughout Asia, saving energy and money, thus reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving sustainability and competitiveness.

The Race to the Top program is now looking to a new iteration, where we would like to scale up the program activities for a broader impact.

Deadline for submission of proposals is January 24th.
