Taiwan textiles manufacturer Formosa Taffeta Co has obtained a “Carbon Footprint Verification Statement” for 24 of its product categories, from BSI Pacific Ltd. (bsi), a branch of the British Standards Institution.
Formosa Taffeta recently launched a company-wide verification project looking at the greenhouse gas emissions of its products from start to finish, following the PAS 2050:2011 standard.
The goal was to help the company improve energy management, maximize efficiency, enhance energy use and lower carbon emission.
It was assisted by the Taiwan Textile Research Institute (TTRI).
TTRI launched a Carbon Footprint Constancy Team in 2010.
