The World's First 'Green Shipyard'
Since the announcement of the “Green Shipyard” in 1996, DSME has put the environment first in its management principles and pursued green and sustainable growth while conserving natural resources. DSME has gained a green competitive edge by minimizing pollution on the production line, running a wind power businesses, developing environmentally friendly vessels, and CO2 capture technology. DSME strives to realize the vision as a global environmental leader through implementing a pollution-free workplace, eco-friendly competitiveness, and global green management.
Consistent development of environmental technology to reduce raw material and energy consumption
Provide consistent environmental training and practice eco-friendly activities
Autonomous prevention and inspection activities for potential environmental pollution
cause in the entire production processes for efficient environmental management
Reduce, reuse, and recycle for continued environmental improvement
Regular public release of information to maintain the transparency in execution of environmental policy
DSME performs various activities to reduce pollution and waste and to preserve the environment around our workplaces.
DSME voluntarily implemented the greenhouse gas inventory to manage greenhouse gas and gets itself ready for the future emission trading system through a MRV system.
DSME runs regular air control around the workplace and its vicinities in order to protect the health of employees and the people in the community. DSME also preserves the air environment through an air pollution prevention system in ship building production by keeping the internal regulation level lower than 30% of legal limit.
The sewage/waste water from the different areas of the shipyard is collected in the local repository, transferred to the general sewage/waste water treatment facilities, a nd managed at a level lower than 30% of the legal limit. Moreover, the water is treated with deuterium oxide and supplied to be reused in the shipyard.
DSME has its own marine protection vessels to remove marine floats in the shipyard area and to prevent marine environmental pollution in cooperation with the government and the local community. The company's volunteer group is leading marine environment and ecology protection through its 'One Company for One Clean River' campaign, coastal cleanup, and water purification campaign.
Production Information System minimizes the amount of waste in the production process, and the waste is sorted into nine categories, such as metal scraps and flammables and non-flammables, to be recycled based on 3R.
Chemical treatment, usage and discharge are thoroughly controlled by Toxic Chemical Control Regulations. The soil and the underground water are regularly monitored and examined by the inspection agency designated by the Ministry of Environment.
