Taiwan's Formosa Taffeta gets BSI certification

04
Jan '12
Formosa Taffeta Company Ltd. (FTC), a Taiwan-based company that is among the top nylon and polyester producers in the world, has received the British Standards Institute (BSI) certification for eco-friendly practices.

BSI Taiwan has issued a “statement of verification of greenhouse gases” to the company after it found Formosa Taffeta's practices to be “measurable, reportable and verifiable.”

Taiwan Textile Research Institute (TTRI), which has previously helped two local dyeing firms obtain 11 carbon footprint reduction certificates, has also helped FTC in obtaining the BSI certification.

TTRI said Formosa Taffeta gives great importance to environmental protection and works to decrease carbon emissions, in accordance with the Copenhagen Accord agreed in 2009 by more than 20 countries at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

The Copenhagen Accord calls for all countries to take suitable measures to maintain global warming below 2 degrees Celsius.

Although Taiwan is not a signatory to the UNFCCC, Formosa Taffeta is willing to contribute to reducing the level of global warming as a part of its corporate responsibility, in the footsteps of member nations of the UNFCCC, TTRI said.

After setting up a carbon footprint consultation taskforce in July 2010, TTRI signed a “product carbon footprint memorandum of understanding” with BSI in August of the same year for providing verification of carbon reduction for Taiwan's textile manufacturers.

TTRI plans to help more domestic textile manufacturers reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, in response to the demands made by global clients for adoption of green and eco-friendly manufacturing processes.
