Apex is a pioneer in sustainable manufacturing. Its sustainability efforts are driven by digitization, ecological cognizance, productivity, innovation, and adaptability. Apex has a three-pronged mechanism for addressing sustainability: environmental friendliness, usage of recyclable materials, and mainstreaming corporate social responsibility efforts into its daily operations.
Our commitment to environmental friendliness is multi-faceted. We have one of the largest privately-owned water treatment plants in the country where it researches how to recycle wastewater. Our factories use environmentally friendly chemicals that adhere to ZDHC (Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals) guidelines, to promote sustainable manufacturing.
We have prioritized conserving resources. To conserve energy and maximize efficiency, we made the switch to LED lights from CFL lights and from clutch motors to servo motors in all of our factories and offices. Additionally, our operations utilize waste heat from factory power generation and use it to power air-conditioning and cooling units. Our energy conservation initiatives extend to our manufacturing plants as well, as a part of the International Finance Corporation’s (IFC) PaCT program.
Use of ETP to avoid discharge of hazardous chemicals into the environment.
We have mainstreamed corporate social responsibility into our operations and chooses to holistically develop our employees. Some of our initiatives are providing safe drinking water, transport facilities for all staff. We are determined to invest in our people. Along with the support from the International Labor Organization (ILO), we have jointly developed a wage management system called the Fair Wage Method. We do not see these works just as corporate social responsibility but as a way to develop the community.
