Goals & Performance
Green Operation plays an essential part of Qisda’s corporate sustainability development strategy - with environmental safety and health as the core of green operation management, it puts focus on five major areas in terms of raw material usage, energy and water management, ecological management, and waste management. In the meantime, we carefully monitor
the operational impact on global warning through performing corporate-wide greenhouse gas inventory every year. Since the second half of 2011, Qisda has launched the ISO 50001 management system in an effort to identify the opportunities that help to reduce GHG emissions and improve its green operation through the quantification process.
In addition, to raise the environmental awareness of our employees, Qisda has implemented ISO 14001 environmental management systems since 1997 to provide relevant training for all staff. To ensure that the entire staff considers possible impacts on the environment, new employees are required to receive the training for this environmental management system.
Environmental Safety & Health Management
Good environmental safety and health management forms the foundation of a green enterprise. Every year, Qisda invests significant labor resources in environmental protection programs. As a result, Qisda has advanced its performance in environmental protection in 2011: the ratio of recyclable wastes from its global manufacturing sites, as well as the water reuse rate, both have increased over the years. In 2011, environmental protection-related investments totaled around US$151,000, or roughly 0.0065% of the annual revenue.
Regarding the potential environmental impacts brought upon by our operations in the local community, we have carefully examined the coating procedure employed in Suzhou, China. Equipped with an activated carbon filtration system, Qisda is able to lessen the potential environmental impacts from the waste gas generated in this procedure with low probability and seriousness.
To reduce the impacts from sudden and acute environmental incidents, Qisda has established a standard procedure for environmental emergency response within its global manufacturing sites to manage the environmental impacts of its operations.
