HONG KONG, 9 January, 2014 – The Pinneco® Branding Team attended WWF-Hong Kong's Low Carbon Manufacturing Programme (LCMP) and Low-carbon Office Operation Programme (LOOP) Awards 2013 at The Salisbury, YMCA of Hong Kong this past week.
This awards ceremony not only honours participating companies, but introduces report findings from these programmes. According to the WWF-Hong Kong, "The LCMP report finds that the 29 participating companies reduced their carbon emissions by more than 37,000 tonnes in the last year, equivalent to a HK$60 million cut in electricity usage." As well, "28 companies received labels from the LOOP, and collectively these companies employed 5,748 staff, with an average total carbon emissions per employee of 3.47 tonnes, a reduction of 21 per cent compared with last year."
Seven companies received the LCMP Gold Label, and two companies received the LCMP Platinum Label. Four companies received the LOOP Certified Label, and five companies received the LOOP Silver label.
The Pinneco® Branding Team attended this award ceremony to witness one of its manufacturing partner, Hong Kong Non-Woven Fabric Ind. Co., Ltd (Shenzhen Hong Tao Non-Woven Fabrics Co., Ltd), being honoured the LCMP Gold Label for 2013. A WWF Hong Kong initiative to reduce carbon emissions in manufacturing and office operations, the LCMP and LOOP have made a significant impact in the environment in the Pearl River Delta and participating companies are now awarded for their efforts.
