The Italian textile machinery manufacturers’ association ACIMIT is committed to a more efficient and sustainable European textile industry.
 
Earlier this month, ACIMIT signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the European apparel and textile confederation (Euratex) for common actions in energy efficiency and sustainability.
 
“The MoU with Euratex confirms our commitment on issues of vital importance for the entire industry,” said ACIMIT president Raffaella Carabelli in a statement.
 
“By signing this agreement we intend to pursue our ongoing commitment to issues which we consider of interest to the entire European textile industry: sustainability and energy efficiency,” said Carabelli.
 
“Only through the involvement of the greatest possible number of operators in the industry we will be able to increase the competitiveness of all its components, relating to both the textile and textile machinery sectors,” she added.
 
Euratex has also signed a similar MoU with the German textile machinery manufacturers’ association VDMA. The two agreements confirm the commitment of the three associations to promote energy efficiency in the European textile industry. ACIMIT, in particular, with its Sustainable Technologies project, has been intensely promoting new models for the past five years for production processes and efficient energy use through reduced environmental impacts.
 
The partnership between EURATEX, ACIMIT and VDMA provides for a joint contribution in terms of communicating results achieved by the individual initiatives of each association, as well as an exchange of experiences in order to enhance know-how on energy efficiency related issues in the industry.
