DCC has focused efforts toward sustainability since its inception. The DCC Garment unit was one of the very first in Pakistan to employ customized Tonello and Jeanologia machinery, and also move towards employing laser technology for its production processes. At present, 70% of our manufacturing processes completely employs laser process, E-flow and Ozone washing techniques.
At DCC we consistently review and upgrade our processes so that our supply chain can form a closed loop. We have taken several concrete steps toward circularity in recent years, and we continually adapt innovative and more efficient measures for Waste Conservation to ensure that our waste does not end up as landfill
DCC's fully commissioned Wastewater Treatment Plant effectively cleans water used during production and removes the contaminants from the Effluent. The plant complies with local regulations as well as Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) standards. Currently, 50% of the treated water is reused for production.Read More
As a responsible facility, DCC aims to achieve chemical circularity and minimize the environmental impact by limiting the net consumption as well as reducing the chemical discharge of caustic soda used during the mercerizing process. At present we recover and reuse over 70% of caustic soda from our processes.Read More
DCC conducts regular energy audits for the washing unit, and based on these results, tailor our measures regularly to maximize energy conservation.Read More
Our Carbon Dioxide Recovery plant captures 100% of carbon dioxide produced during power and steam generation. Captured gas is injected into the Effluent Treatment Plant to reduce the chemical dosage which ultimately conserves natural resources.
The HIGG index is a self-assessment tool developed by the Sustainable Apparel Coalition that allows companies to accurately measure and score their sustainability performance. Currently, DCC has FEM verified score of 60+ for the garment and fabric units.Read More
Through the collection of thousands of pieces of used product, DCC has embarked on an upcycling project to futher close the loop on fabric and materials waste. The upcycling unit transforms vintage pieces which are no longer in use; into seasonless fashion wear.
DCC's Strategic Plan includes the installation of solar energy units throughout our premises. These will reduce our energy consumption by a further 50%. Our long term goal is to keep reducing our carbon footprint and become a net-zero facility.
