Since its inception 52 years ago, Earth Day has been a reminder of our responsibility to be good stewards of our planet. It has also been a day to reflect on how our actions are impacting those around us and the environment.
The theme this year is #InvestingInOurPlanet. This calls for us all to act boldly, innovate broadly, and implement equitably, for a prosperous and sustainable tomorrow.
For Earth Day this year, we at Kim-Fay are gearing up by holding discussions around the sustainability of our products and operations. We are using this opportunity to highlight our progress with hopes of inspiring other businesses to go green and adopt sustainable solutions.
We invite you to read our blog as we review ways in which our innovative products are impacting the environment.
Reduce Today Uplift Tomorrow
We have taken an active approach to sustainability by carefully looking at each element of our value chain.
Here’s a brief overview of our sustainability approach for each element in our value chain;
Product Design – Starts with ideating why a product is needed, listening to consumers, and designing the perfect product which serves the need of our customers and has the least impact on the environment. We have pioneered products that are sustainable, economical, and cost-effective such as our interleave toilet paper and foam soap. With Kim-Fay’s interleave toilet paper and foam soap; you can achieve savings of more than 40% compared to other brands.
Raw Material – Sourcing the best quality, best priced, and most sustainable raw material.
Manufacturing – Continuous improvement in our efficiencies, utilizing the latest technologies in manufacturing such as Solar Power means we are lowering our carbon footprint.
Transport – Carefully planned logistics and digital tracking means better utilisation of trucks and ensures our customers get on-time and in-full deliveries. This results in less wastage of precious commodities like fuel.
Use – Our Intelligent Dispensing systems help streamline how a product is used. This can result in massive reductions in consumption and hence promote sustainability.
Final Disposal – Our products are made with biodegradable material meaning they will break down safely in water or can be recycled. This is a crucial part of our sustainability promise.
Our carbon-free mission
At Kim-Fay, we truly recognize the impact environmental issues such as climate change have on the communities we serve. That is why we are actively working towards net-zero carbon emission by adopting renewable energy sources.
In recent years we’ve installed 382 solar panels on our factory’s roofs which now add up to 195.2 MWh of clean solar energy each year. This ensures we are meeting up to 35% of our total energy requirements from the sun and saving 76.52 tons of CO2 each year.
Making sustainability accessible and affordable
We have taken an active approach to the design and pricing of our products by making sure they are not just sustainable but also affordable. Often, efforts to go green are held back by high costs and high product prices. This slows the adoption of green products and solutions.
We are challenging this by introducing products that are sustainable, economical, and cost-effective such as our interleave toilet paper and foam soap. With Kim-Fay’s interleave toilet paper and foam soap, you can achieve savings of more than 40% compared to other brands.
This helps make your transition to greener products not only effortless but also easier on your pocket.
