Hansae Environmental Policy
Climate change and global warming have been major risks, increasingly affecting our environment.
Hansae, as a global garment manufacturer, we have established the environmental management system to reduce environmental risk through the reduction of energy and water use.
In addition, we established a transparent management system by participating in global sustainability project such as the ‘Carbon Disclosure Project’.
Hansae has been dedicated to environmental protection and minimizing GHG emissions through following energy-saving activities.
- Replaced Fluorescent Lamp with LED Lamp
- Installed LED light fixture at sewing machine
- Water Cooling system
- Waste Water Treatment Plant
- Liquid/Steam Divider
- lncinerator (using textile wastes, clean/pressed wood & dry fire wood)
- Rainwater Harvesting System
- Low Liquor Washing & Dyeing Machine (C&T G-TECH)
As one of ways to reduce GHG emissions and increase renewable energy use, many of hansae sewing factories are using biomass replacing liquid fuel and coals. Such biomass includes firewood, sawdust briquette, wood waste, rice hull, etc. Hansae has plan to drive factories to continuously increase the biomass usage.
Chemical Management – ZDHC (Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemical)
C&T Vina, our subsidiary facility (fabric knitting, dyeing, printing and garment washing), has been actively involved with ZDHC program to eliminate 14 priority hazardous chemical by following the below elimination timeline.
