Abstract: Pakistan's textile industry, the country's largest manufacturing industry and second largest employer, is also responsible for large discharges of waste water. Three steps can help improve the environmental performance of the textile processing industry - use of effluent treatment technology matched with improved monitoring, a rating system to trigger competition among firms and environmental training and information services at the district-level.
