Euratex, the European Apparel and Textile Confederation, has launched the Energy Made-to-Measure (EM2M) campaign. Sustainable use of resources is among Euratex’s key priorities. Launched in 2014 by Euratex in collaboration with dozens of organisations across Europe, the EM2M campaign promotes key results of successful initiatives for energy efficiency in the sector.
It aims at supporting textile and clothing companies, especially small and medium enterprises, which are not fully aware of their actual energy consumption and of the saving potential. The campaign provides companies’ managers with tools, best practices and training to take informed decisions to launch energy efficiency actions.
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 – VDMA in Germany and ACIMIT in Italy.
VDMA is a German engineering federation and the largest engineering industry network in Europe. VDMA’s Blue Competence initiative supports sustainable textile production realised by more sparing use of resources and more efficient manufacturing processes. The Energy Made-to-Measure campaign was invited to present at the annual VDMA press conference held at Techtextil in Frankfurt.
ACIMIT (Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers) promotes the Italian textile machinery sector and supports its activity, mainly abroad, through updated and innovative promotional means.
