SKF launches green strategy
Published: Jul 18, 2012
Southeast Asia - SKF, global manufacturer of engineering solutions, has rolled out a solution to help the industry reduce its environmental impact.
The company has introduced its BeyondZero portfolio, a sustainable solution designed to help businesses better align with environmental regulations and trends in the region.
This is part of its efforts to reduce carbon emissions.
The reduction of carbon footprint has become a key focus for many governments and industries in Southeast Asia, according to Tom Johnstone, president and CEO of SKF.
Countries in the region, including Singapore and Malaysia, have already made plans to reduce carbon emissions by 2020, urging local businesses to do the same.
"We see it as our duty to offer our customers in Singapore and the region more innovative, efficient products and services that will help them reduce their carbon footprint," he said.
With the portfolio, the industry will be able to measure and work towards energy savings in specific applications. As such, the environmental effect of BeyondZero will be validated through a life cycle assessment methodology by SKF sustainability engineers, and reviewed annually by KPMG.
Additionally, SKF is also planning to set up a solution factory in Singapore within the next 12 months. The facility will aid customers in improving their key business processes to increase productivity and profitability.
SKF has since partnered with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in its Climate Savers Programme, rolling out strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions for the company as well as its suppliers, logistics operations and customer solutions.
