The rapid expansion of YOFC’s business has increasingly highlighted the importance of the following factors for sustainable development to the enterprise: respect for natural resources, reduction of environmental impact and control of environment risks.
YOFC took the lead to pass the ISO14001 environment management accreditation among its peers in 2004. Since then, we have invested resources into environmental protection projects, fulfilled our environmental and social responsibility, and conformed to international standards in environmental management. We are committed to providing high quality products and services as well as saving resources and minimizing damage to environment.
We take the initiative to explore new technologies for energy conservation and emission reduction, improve equipment operation efficiency, and avoid energy waste.
We continue to strengthen energy conservation management, build an information-based “production support platform” with energy management as the core, tap into energy-saving potential, and optimize energy use methods.
We actively respond to national carbon emission commitments, participate in national carbon emission trading, and earnestly fulfill corporate social responsibility.
