Contrary to what can often be seen in Bangladesh, ECL is a factory on a human scale. Standards in terms of social and environmental compliance are very high, and the development of human capital is a major axis for the evolution of the company.

Training programs have been created, on subjects such as, for example, health, safety, labor law, etc.

ECL notably takes part in the “Healthy child wealthy Bangladesh” project, providing free medical treatment to its employees and their children by a general practitioner.

On the environmental side, the plant has a wastewater treatment system, so as not to discharge polluting components into the natural environment.
