Small energy efficiency working groups (SEEWGs) of three top tier garment companies in Bangladesh—the Tusuka Group, the DBL Group and the Mohammadi Group—recently presented energy efficiency action plans to their top managements under the regional digital small energy efficiency group programme, which was initiated in September in the country.

The programme comes under the framework of the German government development agency GIZ’s internal sector network called TUEWAS and is being implemented in Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Vietnam.

Three companies per country have participated in the programme and formed SEEWGs in each company with personnel from different departments like maintenance, planning, procurement and management. International and national experts developed capacity of the SEEWGs on energy auditing, economic analysis and prepared action plans for energy efficiency over three months.

The Bangladesh part of the programme is being supported by the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency programme (REEEP II) of GIZ Bangladesh in collaboration with the Bangladesh Garments Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) and the Sustainable and Renewable Energy Development Authority (SREDA).

During an online event, the SEEWGs delivered presentations on the results of energy audits conducted at their respective facilities and shared the time-bound activities that would enable them to implement energy management system according to ISO50001:2018, according to a BGMEA press release.

Managements of the three companies in their remarks have shown deep interest to undertake the presented measures to enhance energy efficiency and bring behavioral changes on energy consumption to further move towards sustainability.
