Cleaner production has been defined by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) (UNEP2012) as “the continuous application of an integrated preventative environmental strategy to processes, products and services to increase efficiency and reduce risks to humans and the environment. Cleaner production has proven itself as an effective way of obtaining improved material utilization, reduced energy consumption and lower emission levels. It also motives positive preventive action and promotes a holistic view of resources, production, economy and the environment. Cleaner production becomes the key factor and a must to realize the sustainable development.
Our company attaches great importance to cleaner production, and carries out its work in March 2016. Under the guidance of cleaner production auditor of Shandong Guolian Environmental Protection External Cooperation Center, a cleaner production auditing team of the company was set up. According to the actual situation of the company, a cleaner production auditing plan was formulated and a cleaner production system was established. The focus of this round of cleaner production auditing of the company was determined by simple weight comparison method as resin finishing agent production process and referring to the peer industry level the goal of cleaner production was set.
