Haesung DS announced on May 30 that its Changwon plant has obtained a Zero Waste To Landfill (ZWTL) verification.

 

The "Zero waste landfill" verification is a standard that evaluates companies' resource circulation efforts conducted by UL, a global safety science institute established in the United States in 1894. Depending on the rate of recycling waste generated at the workplace, Platinum (100%), gold (99% to 95%), and silver (94% to 90%) grades are assigned.

 

Haesung DS plans detailed environmental targets for the recycling rate of wastes generated in product production every year and promotes facility investment and innovation activities to achieve the target, and received a 'Gold rating' in recognition of 99% of the recycling rate in this evaluation.

 

Meanwhile, Haesung DS consistently implemented 'green management' such as participation in biological diversity promotion activities, certification of environmental management system (ISO14001), and designation of green companies, and obtained an overall A grade for five consecutive years since the 2017 ESG evaluation.
