FIMER Delivers Significant Carbon Savings for International Clothing Supplier

Amidst the global push for sustainability in the fashion industry, FIMER has successfully equipped two rooftop photovoltaic (PV) systems of a factory dedicated to manufacturing clothing for acclaimed international fashion brands, with its solar inverter technology. As of August 2021, testing and commissioning have been completed and the factory, located in the Hai Duong province of Vietnam, is now fully powered on solar. According to the World Bank, the fashion industry is responsible for 10 percent of annual global carbon emissions, consuming more energy than aviation and maritime shipping combined. In recent years, there has been heightened awareness about the detrimental effects of fast fashion on the environment, with consumers turning their backs on brands that generate excessive wastage and pollution. This has driven brands to re-think their production processes and scale up efforts to reduce waste and produce sustainably.
