Training | Tackling climate change, Reducing GHG emissions

e-Learning: Climate Action Training for the Fashion Industry


The Climate Action Training developed under Promoting Sustainability in the Textile and Garment Industry in Asia (FABRIC) offers two distinct course formats: web-based self-paced learning and a tutored training module, both comprising five modules. These modules are designed to provide a structured learning experience, with self-paced units necessitating 1-2 hours per module and the tutored training spanning six weeks. Moreover, brands and manufacturers can choose to access more comprehensive training through tutors trained in Cambodia, Vietnam, Pakistan, and Bangladesh.


Currently, the training is available in English, Italian, Mandarin, Khmer, Turkish and Vietnamese on the Atingi platform, with plans to expand to additional languages in the future. Access to the training is provided free of charge, ensuring widespread availability.
