Dec '09
Pacific Textiles Holdings Limited has been awarded the “Hang Seng Pearl River Delta Environmental Award 2008/09” as well as the “Hang Seng Pearl River Delta Environmental Category Awards - Air Emissions and Noise Abatement” jointly issued by the Federation of Hong Kong Industries and Hang Seng Bank in 2009, in recognition of the Group's efforts and commitment in environmental protection.

The Hang Seng Pearl River Delta Environmental Awards 2008/09 Awards Presentation Ceremony was held today at Hang Seng Bank Headquarters in Hong Kong. Mr. Zhao Qi Zhi, Deputy General Manager – Engineering Department of Pacific Textiles received the awards from Dr. Kitty Poon Kit, JP, Under Secretary for the Environment, Mr. Cliff Sun, Chairman of Federation of Hong Kong Industries, and Mrs. Margaret Leung, Vice-Chairman and Chief Executive of Hang Seng Bank. Mr. Zhao has made significant contributions to the excellence of the Group's eco-conscious activities.

Established by the Federation of Hong Kong Industries (FHKI) and Hang Seng Bank in 2007, the “Hang Seng Pearl River Delta Environmental Awards” was set up under the manufacturing category of the One Factory-One Year-One Environmental Project (1-1-1) Programme. Entering its second year, the Awards aim to recognize and encourage sound environmental practices by manufacturing companies in Hong Kong and the Pearl River Delta (PRD) region.

“At Pacific Textiles, we are committed to minimizing air emissions and maximizing noise abatement to protect the environment where we operate. All of us at Pacific Textiles are encouraged by this accolade to continue our efforts in achieving high standards in environmentally friendly manufacturing,” said Mr. Wan Wai Loi, Chairman of Pacific Textiles.

With its sights set on cleaner production, Pacific Textiles has implemented a number of environmental projects at its Panyu factory including upgrading and installing critical supporting facilities such as dyeing machines, power plant, water treatment facilities and water recycling plant. At present, recycled water accounts for around 60% of the Group's total water consumption. In order to further increase its production capacity while minimizing the extra discharge of waste water, the Group is actively planning to expand the treatment capacity of its water recycling plant.

In line with its business strategy, Pacific Textiles has been dedicating efforts in maintaining high standards in environmental protection and has actively participated in a wide range of activities to promote environmental best practices. In the past year, its Panyu plant was accredited Environmentally Trustworthy Enterprise – Green Label by Guangdong Environmental Protection Bureau, and was awarded the Cleaner Production Corporation recognition from the Economic and Trade Commission of Guangdong Province and Guangdong Bureau of Science and Technology.
