ASSIST Asia Projects


Sustainable Action & Vision for a better Environment

SAVE is a Public Private Partnership (PPP) project co-financed by DEG and PUMA which will start in early 2013 and finish at the end of 2015. The primary purpose of SAVE is to create more environmentally friendly production sites across the footwear, apparel and accessory supply chain in developing countries of Asia. SAVE will target the manufacturing locations of Bangladesh, Cambodia, China and Indonesia and has an ultimate goal of reducing their energy, water, waste and greenhouse gas emissions by 25% compared to a 2011 baseline.

Ultimately SAVE will contribute towards achieving a green economy and sustainable industrial development through local capacity building, technical assistance and the establishment of two project support offices which will operate beyond the project duration.
