Since the Industrial Revolution, product design and manufacturing have been dominated by the "cradle-to-grave" model in which manufacturing is a linear process of production, use, and disposal, which eventually leads to pollution.
By contrast, the sustainability concept aims to design an industrial manufacturing process that facilitates recycling and reuse, thus posing less threat to humans and the environment.
At JINTEX, we are committed to introducing the bio material design approach to many of our environmentally friendly products and have added a lifecycle dimension to the identification of environmental aspects in our environmental management system.
Green Technology for Quality Life
In an attempt to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help mitigate the impact of climate change, JINTEX has made a commitment to saving energy and cutting carbon emissions. We have made a number of improvements to enhance energy efficiency, including installing variable frequency controllers on high power equipment, updating and optimizing air compressors, and optimizing the boiler system.
In addition to improvements to machinery, we have also introduced many other measures to cut energy use: for example, reducing the use of cooling towers and air conditioning, and increasing our use of LED lights while decreasing the overall number of lights in factories.
WATER RESOURCES MANAGEMENT
As a supplier for many global clothing brands, JINTEX is committed to striking a balance between business development and environmental protection. With the impact of climate change and the limitations posed by Taiwan's environment, water resources are becoming increasingly precious. Guided by the principle of sustainable development, the company has carried out water resource planning to manage and allocate water use more efficiently and avoid wasting water.
We have mobilized all our employees to help us continue to find ways to improve our manufacturing and reduce our impact on the environment. We pledge to abide by the following environmental, health and safety, and energy policies in our management system:
1. Complying with laws and regulations and being responsive to public expectations;
2. Reducing our impact on the environment;
3. Enhancing training and mobilizing the whole company to take part in environmental and safety programs;
4. Ensuring the effectiveness of day-to-day management so as to protect the environment and enhance safety;
5. Strengthen hazard prevention in order to create a safe working environment;
6. Prevent waste of resources to ensure the company's sustainability.
