At Rajby, we believe in conducting our business operations without compromising on natural resources. We are committed to drive change and prosper, while leaving a humble footprint on Earth for the generations to come.
Our Commitments for Sustainability:
We have implemented the following measures for a sustainable future:
Effluent Treatment Plants (ETPs) have been installed to minimize soil and water contamination. The parameters of the ETPs are set as mentioned below. These are more stringent than BSR Guidelines and Pakistani NEQS:
Effluent BOD = 30 mg/l
Effluent COD = 150 mg/l
Effluent TSS = 30 mg/l
PH = 6 - 9
We conduct regular energy audits at our Washing Factory, and based on the results, take all possible measures for energy conservation. Some of the significant steps we have taken to minimize energy wastage are as follows:
We look forward to a major milestone for our upcoming factory, i.e. award of LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certification. This certification will endorse our factory as saving resources and having a positive impact on occupants’ health, while promoting clean energy. It will also reaffirm our commitment towards sustainability.
We understand that fossil fuels release large amounts of toxic gases into the atmosphere and cause massive pollution. These are also finite in quantity and are expected to run dry within the next century. On the other hand, solar power is clean and abundant. While generating energy, solar panels produce virtually zero pollution. This renewable resource will also remain available to meet all of Earth’s energy needs for billions of years to come.
Realizing these benefits and with a focused sustainable approach,we have installed solar panels in our factories.
Clean water is precious and a vital resource. We have adopted measures to save water in our laundry processes and activities. Some of which are:
We strongly believe in developing competency of our workers through continuous trainings, we partnered with UNDP and trained hundreds of workers on skill development and capacity building programs to ensure our contribution in social development.
To ensure effective use of resources, we have engaged WWF-Pakistan to improve resource efficiency through various energy improvement programs. These projects will focus upon an overall improvement in our resource utilization and production practices leading to sustainability, with a particular focus on water use and energy management in the production facility along with addressing other relevant environmental issues such as air and noise pollution and solid waste management.
We are using modern tools of sustainability to gauge our performance through international platforms known as HIGG index – Sustainable Apparel coalition (SAC) and Business Environmental Performance Initiatives (BEPI) where customers can become part of network and review our social and environmental performance. As a part of continues review of our performance, we have aimed to achieve HIGG Index Score (Social & Environment) up to 65% by 2019.
