Formosa Taffeta bags BSI certification for 24 categories

The Taiwan branch of BSI Pacific Ltd. (BSI) has presented Formosa Taffeta Co. Ltd., a vertically integrated textile manufacturing company, with a Carbon Footprint Verification Statement for 24 product categories for its efforts towards protection of environment.
 
The announcement regarding grant of the certification came after Formosa Taffeta embarked on a company-wide verification project through its Lean Team and Research & Development Centre, an initiative that was supported by the Taiwan Textile Research Institute (TTRI).
 
The company adhered to the PAS 2050:2011 standard while carrying out the verification, which probed into direct and indirect emission of greenhouse gases during entire production process for all products. The move was intended to help the company better its energy management, boost efficiency, optimize energy utilization and reduce carbon emission.
 
Playing a vital role in the process, TTRI said the company cleared maximum number of tests in a single verification process, which is an achievement that would play a part in upgradation of textile industry of the country.
 
After winning the ISO14064-1 Greenhouse Gases Verification Statement from BSI and TAF at start of the current year, Formosa Taffeta has once again proved its zeal to help clients achieve sustainable growth, TTRI said.
 
Working jointly, TTRI and Formosa Taffeta are resolute to put a pause to global warming. Striving to reduce pollution and waste, TTRI aims to ensure that Formosa Taffeta products even help the downstream operators to participate in conservation of the environment.
 
Greatly emphasizing on conservation of environment, TTRI in 2010 constituted a Carbon Footprint Consultancy Team, which inked a carbon footprint ISO 50001 memorandum of understanding with BSI to jointly carry out verification of emission of greenhouse gases and carbon footprint of textile operators.
 
Both TTRI and Formosa Taffeta hold the view that an understanding of carbon footprints can help companies to cut costs, raise competitiveness, diversify products and build value.
 
The two organizations would work jointly on corporate social responsibility, energy management and carbon neutral services in future.
