Fountain Set (Holdings) Limited, a global leader in the manufacturing of circular knitted fabrics, is pleased to announce its subsidiary Dongguan Shatin Lake Side Textiles Printing & Dyeing Co., Ltd. (Lake Side) was accredited a “Gold Label” in the WWF Low Carbon Manufacturing Programme (LCMP) from WWF Hong Kong.

Lake Side has demonstrated a satisfactory performance in carbon intensity reduction, greenhouse gas management and best practices in energy efficiency of manufacturing process and operations. Being the second year participation for Lake Side in this programme, the result is an encouraging leap from the “Certified Label” in 2010.

Mr. Andrew Yau, Senior Vice President of Fountain Set Limited, received the award from Dr. Kitty Poon Kit, Under Secretary for the Environment, HKSAR at the award ceremony in Renaissance Harbour View Hotel Hong Kong on 8 November 2011. “Fountain Set Group has been striving for cleaner production, energy saving and pollutant reduction. The Group co-founded Sustainable Fashion Business Consortium (SFBC) in 2008 with 11 other textile and garment manufacturers with strong sense of corporate social responsibility.

It was the first textile organization embracing environmentally friendly and sustainable development as its core founding value in Hong Kong. The Group has been implementing environmental protection measures in different levels. Lake Side has a reduction of 12% of CO2 emission per pound of the finished product in 2010.

In addition to our effort for a better environment and producing higher value-added low carbon products, the expenses that we saved from consuming less steam, electricity, chemicals and water exceeded the capital that we invested for greener facilities and measures.

Here I express my gratitude to all the staff in Lake Side and those who have involved in this project for their efforts and hard works. Last but not least, we sincerely thank Dongguan Shatian Environmental Industrial Estate Government for their continuous support.” Mr. Yau expressed in the sharing session after receiving the award.

The carbon reduction measures of Lake Side include but not limit to the categories of air pollutants reduction, energy conservation and water resource management in the aspects of production and daily lives of its staff.

The energy saved in 2010 was over 75 million kWh, which was equivalent to 50 thousand tons of CO2 reduction. Lake Side plans to further invest over 18 million RMB in converting electricity generation and coal combusting facilities for achieving higher levels of energy conservation.

Fountain Set (Holdings) Limited and its subsidiaries are recognized in the industry as one of the world's largest circular knitted fabric manufacturers and has long been a driving force in the global market through its vertically integrated operations in spinning, knitting, dyeing, printing and finishing.
