He significantly contributed to rehabilitate the victims of Rana Plaza disaster. He also supported various social and environmental projects in Primark’s Bangladesh supply chain. Hamza’s job required him to proactively engage with various stakeholders such as ILO, DFID, IFC, BGMEA, BKMEA, Caritas, BNWLA and others. In 2016, he moved to the UK to pursue his M.Sc on Environmental Management where he studied the response of River Sherbourne’s macro-invertebrates to change in water quality. Shortly after his M.Sc he was offered a role as Environmental Sustainability Assistant in Primark’s UK central office and his job required him to liaise with all the regional teams to ensure that Primark’s supply chain partners are compliant to its sustainability requirements. He was promoted to Environmental Sustainability Coordinator in March 2019 and he is a key member of a growing team of sustainability experts in Primark. Beside Hamza’s professional work he keeps himself well informed of the current academic research on natural capital and water management with the hope of pursuing a PhD degree in future.

As part of my studies we had to go to village and stay with rural people for a three week immersive field research program. When doing that I fell in love with Bangladeshi villages and our rural folk. I also felt very strongly this urge to do something to improve the dismal quality of services people have access to, especially in healthcare.
The diversity of wildlife in Bangladesh is remarkable. Our diversity is a part of us; it's not a luxury we have
