The Clean by Design (CBD) program, launched in 2009, is an innovative green supply chain initiative to leverage the purchasing power of multi-national corporations to reduce the environmental impacts of their manufacturing abroad. Working with a number of prominent global apparel retailers and brands, the program has focused first in the textile sector, which is notorious for its energy and water intensity and for its high pollution load. Clean by Design reduces the environmental footprint of textile mills with a business-friendly model that focuses on increasing production efficiencies, which saves factories money. The project is seeking an intern to work in our Beijing office. (more information is provided via http://www.nrdc.org/international/cleanbydesign/ )
