Ever since the creation of Ferney Spinning Mills Ltd in 1978, it has integrated social and environmental concerns with its business strategy and operations. It has over the years made important contributions to the social and environmental development of the country and today Corporate Social Responsibility is ingrained in its culture.
"Corporate Social Responsibility”
Together with the support of Consolidated Dyeing & Fabrics Ltd (its sister company), more ongoing tangible contributions are brought to socio-cultural groups;e.g, Sponsorship to sport associations, Charity and financial support to underpriviledged people in the neighbourhood.
The concern for environment for Ferney Spinning Mills Ltd is related to elaboration and implementation of a modern system for an environmental management, namely:
Minimise packaging from suppliers and to customers and substitute less toxic materials wherever possible. For every 100 kg of dyed fibre entering the blending process, only 5 kg can be termed as unprocessable solid wastes at the end of the twisting operation. Around 72% of the water consumed for the dyeing processes is derived from river water.
Processes and systems are being revisited so as to identify where material can be reused. Printing on both sides on the paper is being encouraged; wooden pallets are repaired and used again.
Wool wastes are recycled as far as possible, plastic and metals are recovered by outside contractors for re-conversion.
Heat recovery systems from effluent.
