Gotten a silver prize in the scheme two years ago, the winning mill has been taking a progressive approach in its environmental performance.
Following the receipt of ISO14000 Environmental Management System certification in 2003, the company has adopted advanced technologies such as the first automatic ink dispenser for garment printing in Asia to reduce ink consumption and wastage, as well as the water storage air conditioning system that significantly saves power usage.
