The World Wildlife Found (WWF) has presented Positec with the Platinum Low Carbon Manufacturing Program award.
The award presented by the WWF acknowledges Positec’s actual commitment to the environment. The Company expresses this commitment by designing consumer products that allow end users to reduce their own carbon footprint, also by actively reducing the company’s manufacturing footprint, cutting greenhouse gas emissions within its supply chain and by setting best practices for energy efficiency.

In 2011 the world population reached 7 billion people and is predicted
to peak at 9.3 billion by 2050. According to the WWF, in 2008 the world
population used the equivalent of 1.5 planets to support its activities.
If the demands on the planet continue to increase at the same rate, by
the mid-2030s, we would need the equivalent of two planets to maintain
our resource-hungry lifestyles.
At Positec we are well aware of the urgency of the situation and our responsibility to contribute to the creation of a sustainable economy.
WWF’s LCMP aims to reduce carbon emissions generated by manufacturing facilities in China and to develop environmental social governance in the region with the highest manufacturing density in the world. China’s status as “the factory of the world” adds greater importance to the WWF’s program on a global scale.
WWF is one of the world’s largest and most experienced independent conservation organizations, with over 5 million supporters and a global network active in more than 100 countries.
