Mid- to Long-term Environmental Management Goals
LX International has defined the directions for environmental management and the key strategies that will guide us through the systematic management of our environmental impacts, and the subsequent key tasks have been derived to attain the strategic goals. These tasks are being executed in line with the goals and plans over the short- mid- and long-term periods. Going forward LX International will make the all-out efforts to deliver the tasks and achieve our strategic goals, thereby taking our environmental management capabilities to the next level, and advance our entire environmental management system.
Legal and Regulatory Compliance Strategy
We have a strategy in place to build an infrastructure designed to preemptively respond to any international environmental regulations, which is a crucial step for launching new business platforms and solutions, and pioneering new markets.
We conduct periodic audits to ensure complete compliance with any environmental laws and regulations. This is to maintain consistency with any environmental policies for sustainable management, and to ensure we are strictly following the appropriate methods and procedures to pass on providing a better environment for future generations.
We conduct robust safety and environmental audits twice a year at our headquarters to verify registration and management of chemicals, the appropriateness of environmental permit registration and renewal, the installation and management of environmental protection facilities for air and wastewater, review and self-measurement of the emissions of major pollutants, the reporting of a legal performance, the recycling activities of waste, and whether the subcontracting reports have been filed for hazardous chemicals handled by our partners.
Development of Internal Guidelines for Green Procurement
We are striving to craft internal guidelines for green procurement to encourage the purchase of green products, prevent the waste of resources, and environmental pollution.
1. Policy and Guidelines Development
We develop internal policies and guidelines to facilitate green procurement, and educate and raise awareness among our employees.
2. Supplier Evaluation
We establish a process for evaluating suppliers that provide green products.
(in consideration of the environmental management systems, carbon emissions, and the recycling and waste disposal policies among others)
3. Product and Service Evaluation
We develop metrics designed to evaluate the environmental sustainability of products and services or leverage the certifications of external certification bodies.
(in consideration of the production processes, statement selection, energy efficiency, and recyclability among others)
4. Purchase Decision
We manage green products and services as the priority factors when making any purchase decisions.
5. Monitoring and Improvement
We monitor and evaluate the results of green procurement to identify performance and develop improvement plans to pursue continuous improvement.
