Technical Briefs on sustainable Energy in the Garment sector in Cambodia
These documents are produced with the financial support of the European Union (EU) and Agence française de développement (AFD). Its contents are the sole responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the EU and AFD.
As part of the implementation of the Switch Garment (EU-Switch Asia) and VETHIC (AFD) Project in Cambodia which aims at increasing competitiveness and decreasing environmental impact towards sustainable production in the Cambodian garment industry, Geres is developing technical briefs to illustrate the possibilities to adopt more sustainable practices in key equipment in the garment factories in Cambodia.
These technical briefs are the outcome of 50 comprehensive walkthrough audits conducted in garment factories across Cambodia. These audits have provided valuable insights and findings, enabling the identification of key opportunities for energy conservation and renewable energy implementation.

Switch Garment, a project funded by the European Union Switch Asia Grants Programme and jointly implemented by Geres, Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) Cambodia, Textile, Apparel, Footwear & Travel Goods Association in Cambodia (TAFTAC) aims at ‘Promotion of sustainable energy practices in the garment sector in Cambodia’ (“Switch Garment”). The objective of this project is to increase the competitiveness and decrease the environmental impact of the Cambodian garment industry through sustainable production.
From 2022 to 2024, Geres is implementing the “VETHIC” project, which is funded by the Agence française de développement (AFD). The primary objective of this project is to enhance the environmental performance of the Cambodian textile sector by activating the levers of energy transition. Geres is collaborating with TAFTAC, Cambodia Women for Peace and Development (CWPD), and Live & Learn Cambodia (LLC) to collectively achieve this goal.
