Committed to efficient and responsible energy usage
This policy is taken directly from our standard operating manual, it is one of our core tenets. Energy plays an important role in HK strategic planning. Responsible energy treatment ensures cost effectiveness and meets corporate responsibility requirements to help improve our society.
The HK Energy Policy
HK Cosmetic Packaging is fully committed to increasing efficient energy use and procurement, thereby optimizing our energy performance in a continuous improvement process. To implement this goal, we have introduced an energy management system according to the ISO 50001 standard. This policy considers the planned development of our Coburg site. We ensure that the essential requirements of this standard are correctly implemented and that the processes within this energy management system are continuously improved.
Our strategic goal when we launched the program was to reduce our energy requirements by 5% over 5 years starting in 2013.
Our energy expenditure was to be lowered in the long term and we agreed to review it annually.
