It’s time to act

Supercharging sustainability

Doing business the right way

The Cookware Company is committed to be the leading sustainable development performer in Housewares industry. Aligning our efforts with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we developed our sustainability vision and strategy to identify and manage the full spectrum of our economic, social, and environmental impacts as well as incorporating the sustainable innovations in our daily operations. Our Chairman and Sustainability Steering Committee is leading our company’s growing Sustainability awareness, which are directed at achieving our sustainability priorities in our global business. We have taken the decision to reduce Carbon Emission from our manufacturing and operation offices across the globe. We encourage our employees to embrace this and to adopt it, along with other measures, in other aspects of their lives, whether at home, at work or other places they frequent. Our Sustainability challenge for 2022 is to build on this commitment and move closer to a Carbon Net Zero. 

Energy

Increase efficiency wherever we can

We seek Renewable Energy solutions applicable in our global operations and manufacturing activities. We installed a Photovoltaic power station on the roof top of our manufacturing site in China, which generates 6.65 million kWh of solar power per year. In addition, we are committed to reducing our Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission as part of our overall efforts to address climate change and build a more sustainable economy. We have reduced Carbon Emission in production of each of our pans since 2017.

Product safety & quality

Environmental innovations

Besides the non-negotiable assurance of our product safety and quality, we continuously optimize our designs with environmental innovations. We are increasing the percentage of recycled materials, such as Recycled Aluminum, in our products and Recycled Paper in our packaging material. We are keen on ensuring that all the plastics we used in our operations are decomposable, and we aim to become plastic free packaging in long-term.

Packaging & material waste

Future-proof packaging solutions

Reducing waste is one of the priorities of our sustainability strategy. We participate in recycling programs to keep paper, plastics, metals, and other recyclable wastes out of landfills to minimize our environmental impact. In addition, we look for ways to encourage recycling in our products to mitigate waste. We are committed to increasing the ratio of recycled content in our materials as well as decreasing consumption of virgin resources in our packaging.

Improving water efficiencies

Reduced water consumption

We seek to implement innovative ways to improve water efficiencies from all our own manufacturing facilities, with an increased focus on data collection, as well as in our supply chain moving forward. We have reduced water consumption in production of each of our own pans since 2017.

Social responsibility

We care for our people

Our employees’ health and safety are our top priority. Work-life integration is top of our minds, which is why we ensure resources and benefits are provided to help achieve this balance. We have heightened safety precautions at all locations in compliance with local governmental regulation and public health guidelines. In most of our factories we adopted ISO 45001 international standard for occupational health and safety sets the minimum standard of practice to protect employees worldwide.

Partnerships & targets

Minimize impact on health & environment

One key area in which the world must continue to decarbonize is in industry. Our focus, therefore, is on areas that have high potential for decarbonization. Accordingly, we are pleased to announce that during 2021 we joined the WWF-Hong Kong Low Carbon Manufacturing Programme (LCMP) accreditation, and Low-Carbon Office Operation Programme (LOOP). These results are extremely encouraging and are evidence that such important programs are becoming widely known. Despite cumulative business growth of 40%, our factory still managed to eliminate Carbon Emissions. They also reduced their absolute Carbon Emissions between the base year 2017 and the performance year 2021. Bringing together strong partners with bold ambitions, determination and a broad variety of skills is the best way to realize our sustainability targets.
