Energy efficiency is a subject of critical importance for the textile and clothing industry, for the other sectors and for the society in general. A number of high quality actions are launched to bring real benefits to the companies - tools, best practises and innovative solutions. Energy Made-to-Measure campaign aims to provide European textile and clothing companies with high quality information on relevant energy efficiency actions. It also promotes synergies between different actions to maximise the actual impact.
Energy Made-to-Measure will be intensified as of 2015 thanks to new collaboration with both the German textile Machinery Association's (VDMA) Blue Competence initiative and the Sustainable Technologies project of the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers (ACIMIT). Two separate Memorandums of Understanding have just been signed for these actions to join efforts with the campaign for the benefit of the European companies. Read more here.
