European textile trade body, Euratex said its ‘Energy Made-to-Measure’ (EM2M) campaign will now intensify due to a partnership with the VDMA’s ‘Blue Competence initiative’ and the Sustainable Technologies project of ACIMIT.

“Two separate memorandums of understanding (MoU) have just been signed for these actions to join efforts with the campaign for the benefit of the European companies,” Euratex said in a press release.

Since 2014, Euratex with support of various organisations runs the EM2M campaign, which offers companies with tools, best practices and training to take informed decisions about energy efficiency measures.

The campaign has so far promoted the outcome of three international projects on textile and clothing manufacturing co-funded by the European Union, namely ARTISAN, SESES and SET.

More than 20 public events took place in 8 countries to meet some 500 professionals and discuss opportunities to spare energy and cut costs for a more efficient, sustainable manufacturing.

In 2015, the Energy Made-to-Measure campaign will intensify promotion of energy efficiency in textile manufacturing together with ACIMIT and VDMA.

VDMA has launched the Blue Competence initiative to support sustainable textile output, by means of using lesser resources and more efficient manufacturing processes involving intelligent technical solutions.

ACIMIT has created the Sustainable Technologies project with the aim of developing and promoting new production models and efficient processes from an energy standpoint, with a reduced environmental impact.

Based on such clear mutual interest in sustainability and in the competitiveness of textile manufacturing, EURATEX signed agreements with the two leading associations.

The collaboration is expected benefit from each other‘s achievements in all applicable areas like technical know-how and communication.

Common activities will be discussed as of next week in Budapest on the occasion of the SET project Advisory Board of which both VDMA and ACIMIT are members.

The international trade fairs of Techtextil and Texprocess and ITMA 2015 will offer additional opportunities to present early results and upcoming steps to the attention of global companies. (AR)
