Taking the FUJIFILM Group Green Policy as a foundation, DS Chemport implements these global practices while taking into account and including specific requirements from a local perspective. Our guiding principle is that no aspect of our business is exempt from assessment - a continuous endeavour, as we identify whether tasks can be carried out in a more sustainable and environmentally responsible manner. All tasks and practices, whether they be administrative, manufacturing, laboratory or supply chain based, are regularly reviewed, improved and implemented.
The products that we develop are thoroughly evaluated to ensure that they meet market demands, but steps are taken to also ensure that the best practices available are employed during their manufacture and their application. This includes waste minimisation or elimination, increased use of raw materials derived from renewable sources and efficient supply chain systems. Our aim is to constantly increase the know-how of our employees and in turn, pass this on to our customers.
Among various techniques, the well established 3 R’s – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - are predominantly used. Audits are taken to identify waste streams and consider ways in which they can be avoided or minimised. Should there still be waste produced after this stage, assessment is made to identify ways to reuse the waste, either within or outside the company. We then move to recycling options, recovering material when feasible or responsibly disposing of material with accredited carriers when we can’t.
Areas that we are actively involved in include;
Reduced Energy Use
Reduced Environmental Impact
