The earth offers us everything we need including life and energy. We need to devote more efforts to protect our planet. As a leader of the zipper industry in China, SBS zipper is committed to adhering to the sustainable development concepts of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Recovery.
Let the earth have more drops of clean waters
As we know, water is the source of life. There is no kind of life can live without water. Now, we SBS zipper are committed to making every drop of water play a vital role in nature and take the social responsibility in reducing water pollution.
In SBS, water begins to circulate after entering the production process. The company has built a water reuse and recycle system including condensate water reuse, cooling water circulation, sewage treatment and filtration and reverse osmosis recycling. In addition, we adopt the most advanced automatic operation control system in the sewage treatment process, making the water recycling rate reaching 70% (500 tons per day). And the quality of the recycling water can reach the drinking level. Through the construction of the process of water reuse and recycle system, 350,000 tons of water can be reduced each year, which can supply water to approximately 2,000 households per year.
Let the earth have more sunshine
Besides water, sunshine is another vital elements for lives. Through the use of clean energy, carbon dioxide emissions have been greatly reduced. We have invested in the photovoltaic power generation projects which can generate about 10 million KWH per year. While we continue to use clean energy, we also think about how to effectively save energy. We have renovated 800 sets of equipment to avoid heat loss.
At the same time, we reduce the temperature of the production workshop and installed the central air-conditioning to enhance the workplace environment of our employees. We continue to strengthen the management of heat energy and carry out energy-saving renovation. We promote the heat energy repair project of air compressors, which can reduce the electricity consumption of water heaters by 2.6 million degrees and carbon emissions by 3321 tons per year. We also provide hot water services to 2000 employees.
