Euratex, the European Apparel and Textile Confederation joined the Techtextil/ Texprocess fair in Frankfurt to present its major initiatives, sustainable use of resources which is one of the key priorities of Euratex for the years to come.
Euratex in collaboration with dozens of organizations across Europe, in 2014 launched its Energy Made-to-Measure campaign which promotes key results of successful initiatives for energy efficiency in the sector.
It aims at supporting the textile and clothing companies, especially SMEs, which are not fully aware of their actual energy consumption and of the saving potential, the organization reports.
The campaign provides companiesâ€™ managers with tools, best practices and training to take informed decision to launch energy efficiency actions.
Three international projects co-funded by the European Union â€“ ARTISAN, SESEC and SET â€“ defined the starting point of the campaign. In 2014, over 500 professionals participated in 21 campaignâ€™s public events held in Italy, Portugal, Belgium, Germany, Croatia, Romania, Bulgaria, and Lithuania.
With a new focus on energy efficiency in textile production processes, Energy Made-to-Measure in 2015 starts collaboration with the initiatives of two national associations of textile machinery manufacturers â€“ the VDMA in Germany and the ACIMIT in Italy.
The VDMAâ€™s Blue Competence initiative supports sustainable textile production realized by more sparing use of resources and more efficient manufacturing processes.
As a part of common communication efforts, Energy Made-to-Measure campaign was invited to present at the annual VDMAâ€™s international press conference held at Techtextil in Frankfurt. The conference speakers introduced three concrete examples and best practices among the companiesâ€™ sustainable actions.
Euratex representative Mauro Scalia focused on the campaignâ€™s ambitious plan to empower by September 2016 300 textile and clothing companies to become more energy efficient.
