TMAS working with ClimatePartner for carbon mapping project

As sustainable textile industry, TMAS, the Swedish Textile Machinery Association, has been working with ClimatePartner on a corporate carbon footprint (CCF) mapping project with its member companies.

They are participating in the project, which involves calculating each operation’s Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions in order to identify the current climate impact and areas where reductions can be made.

TMAS secretary general Therese Premler-Andersson said, “Integrating climate action into strategies is becoming increasingly important in Europe and we have decided to take a pro-active role.”

Also, there is growing pressure from customers to be more transparent in this area and forthcoming legislation will soon make it necessary for all to take climate actions.

TMAS members, recognise the benefit of taking action now, not least in terms of taking responsibility and demonstrating credibility.

With five areas such as: facility management, employee mobility, business travel, logistics, and procurement the project examine all aspects.

Primary data is being used wherever possible and emission factors originate from internationally recognised databases such as ecoinvent and GEMIS.

Ragarding this Premler-Andersson said, “Each company is very different in terms of size, structure and operations, but they share common goals in the design and production of textile machinery that is flexible and highly automated, and wherever possible enables savings in energy, water and chemicals consumption.”

The ClimatePartner measurement programme is based on the guidelines of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard (GHG Protocol), and factors in all greenhouse gases covered by the Kyoto Protocol.

These are carbon dioxide (CO₂), methane (CH₄), nitrous oxide (N₂O), hydrofluorocarbons (HFC), perfluorocarbons (PFC), sulphur hexafluoride (SF₆) and nitrogen trifluoride (NF₃).

Each of these gases affect the atmosphere differently and remain in the atmosphere for different lengths of time. Rather than reporting on each gas separately, they are expressed as a CO₂ equivalent (CO₂e) for the sake of simplicity.

“The work does not end here – on the contrary, now when we are recognising our current practices, our work to reduce emissions in an efficient way will continue,” Premler-Andersson concludes.

The Textile Machinery Association of Sweden (TMAS) comprises the leading Swedish companies with textile technology, automation and production processes.

It is expert with its advanced systems for yarn fault detection and tension monitoring, to yarn feeding technology for weaving, automated sewing production lines, cutting machines, embroidery technology, effective material handling systems, spray application system for fabric finishing and much more.
