New Zealand's textiles industry produces some of the world's best carpets, foot-wear and apparel. It is turning to energy efficiency for a competitive edge in an international market-place dominated by low-cost producers.
The New Zealand textiles sector consumes around 1 petajoule (PJ) of energy every year. That's equivalent to the same amount of energy used by around 24,000 households.
Delivered by industry organisation Textiles New Zealand, the EECA Textiles Sector Energy Efficiency programme helps textiles firms to improve their energy efficiency - increasing productivity and enhancing international competitiveness.
