Mining firm trims paper use by 54%
BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya—Mining firm FCF Minerals Corp. has trimmed down its paper consumption through its resource conservation on bond paper.
Peter Storey, general manager for operations, said the decrease is part of the achieved objectives and requirements of the Environmental Management System which the company earlier committed to.
“This is not just to demonstrate the requirements but more importantly, to reduce the company’s environmental footprints and benefit from the efficient use of resources,” he said.
For 2017, Storey said they have set their target on the reduction of bond paper use at 5 percent but FCF has achieved 54 percent using the unit of kilogram over number of workers.
Storey said they posted a consumption rate of 9.7 kilograms per worker last year and achieved the 4.6 rate.
“Despite our company’s transition phase from commissioning to commercial operations and other challenges, the company was able to reduce bond paper consumption beyond the set target, decreased environmental footprints and above all, executed responsibilities as a sustainable agent to the world,” Storey stressed.
He attributed the success on paper consumption use on the resource initiatives and efforts of the firm’s EMS, working committees and employees.
