Shandong Luda Packaging CO.,LTD is committed to operating our business in a manner that is Socially and Environmentally Responsible (SER). Over the past 24 years, Luda Packaging has maintained a basic philosophy that centers on the core values of the company: respect, loyalty, integrity, flexibility and adaptability, investing in our employees and having fun at work in the company of friends. These core values also influence our obligations to make a positive difference in the communities in which we operate and to help protect the environment.
Luda Packaging's employees are our most important resource. We provide a work environment that is respectful, safe and healthy at all locations utilizing the OHSAS 18001 management system, for which certification was obtained in June 2004.
In the area of safety, we have implemented accident prevention steps such as risk assessments, occupational health and safety education, and emergency drills at all sites. On the health side, Boya Singapore provides a variety of wellness programs for our employees. These include health education from health-care professionals, fitness programs, and wellness newsletters.
Luda Packaging is committed to upholding a culture where diversity is valued and respected. We treat all individuals fairly, in all aspects of employment, without regard to race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, sex, gender identity, pregnancy, marital status, actual or perceived sexual orientation, age, physical or mental disability, family care status, veteran status or medical condition, including genetic characteristics. Luda Packaging prohibits discrimination and harassment of individuals on any of the bases listed above, or any other legally-protected basis.
Luda Packaging is dedicated to protecting the rights of employees worldwide, in both policy and practice. We operate in full compliance with applicable local labor laws, including those regarding minimum age, working hours, overtime, wages and benefits, at all Luda Packaging facilities. Employment is voluntary and employees are able to associate freely.
Luda Packaging shares the concern of our customers that the sources of minerals used in the manufacture of our product are not considered "conflict minerals." Conflict minerals pertain to certain minerals (such as tin and gold) that are mined in countries where conditions of armed conflict and human rights abuses are reported to be occurring; most notably in eastern provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).
Luda Packaging is also working with our supply chain to ensure that the purchased components used in our products are free of materials containing conflict minerals. We are asking that our suppliers support our concern and we are involved in an ongoing effort to collect the necessary supporting data and applicable evidence as part of our due diligence.
Luda Packaging is doing its part to be a responsible environmental steward. In June 2004, Luda Packaging obtained certification to ISO 14001 which provides guidance in environmental issues. We are operating in ways that are more sensitive to the environment in order to reduce our carbon footprint and disclose our efforts through our participation in the Carbon Disclosure Project. As energy use in our facilities makes up the majority of our carbon footprint, we are researching ways to reduce our energy usage.
We are increasing our recycling efforts at all sites, striving to recycle the majority of the waste generated by our operations. Luda Packaging is the first Singapore bearing to launch an electronics recycling program for our customers in the U.S.
Luda Packaging is making smart and responsible choices in packaging by using more eco-friendly materials and looking for ways to increase our use of post-consumer recycled materials.
Luda Packaging understands its role as a Global Citizen and strives to create positive change whenever we can. With the help of our employees, Luda Packaging participates in endeavors to improve the communities in which we operate, such as contributing to local area food banks, co-sponsoring charitable drives, and donating educational equipment to schools.
