The environmental protection



Always committed to sustainable development


Simon is not resting on its laurels, but is committed to supporting the environment。In 2009, under the company's environmental protection plan, Simon installed 15,600 square feet of solar power at its plant, which reduced its reliance on non-renewable energy sources。

Simon has achieved several environmental benefits by providing part of his electricity from pollution-free renewable sources。 The solar system alone has reduced carbon dioxide emissions by more than 373,000 pounds。The EPA estimates that the co2 reduction is equivalent to the annual emissions of 22 homes or burning 19,031 gallons of gasoline。

Simon's sustainability work plan includes this clean solar power system, as well as an innovative waste management program that recently helped the company go to zero landfill。 Instead of going to landfills, Simon recycled or reprocessed more than 900 tons of waste, which the EPA estimates further reduced greenhouse gas emissions by more than 2,675 tons。

Based on an extensive internal audit conducted in accordance with ISO 14001, more than 99% of waste at Simon Park is recovered, reused or reprocessed in an environmentally sustainable manner。 Any remaining non-recyclable items are transported to a local waste power plant, where they are burned under tightly controlled conditions to generate electricity。 Small amounts of ash from the waste generation process go into landfills - we are looking at other ways to use this ash, such as environmentally friendly asphalt fillings for roads。

When we combined our environmental efforts and compared them with the company's carbon emission rate, we found that the company achieved a global negative carbon emission of 179%

How many companies have planted 3,300 acres of their own forest?

In 1962, The Simon Company purchased the 200-year old Branch Hill farm on three acres and established the Carl Siemon Family Charitable Trust under the Simon family's management。In 1966, fifty-six additional acres were purchased in addition to the small farm, and the purpose of the land was very clear, that is, to convert it into a forest farm。Since then, Branch Hill farm has grown to more than 3,000 acres by acquiring 41 separate parcels of land。

 

Branch Hill Farm (WWW.branchhillfarm.Org is now focused entirely on philanthropy, offering educational programs about conserving and protecting fields, forests and wildlife。

Branch Hill Farm, four times the size of New York's Central Park in its current area, has won several awards over the decades:

  • Three-time Winner of the New Hampshire Outstanding Farm Award。
  • Twice awarded the New England Outstanding Farm Award。
  • Second place in the National Forest Farm competition。

Environmental management。

Simon uses ISO 14001 certified global environmental management system to ensure the effective implementation of environmental protection policies。ISO 14001 environmental management system is a set of standards for planning, implementation, control and management review and corrective action based on the management cycle。

"Simon is committed to protecting and sustaining our environment through continuous improvement in the design and manufacture of high-quality copper cable and fiber optic network cabling system components。

Simon's environmental management system ensures compliance with applicable laws, regulations, permits, pollution prevention measures and company policies in the selection, use and disposal of all materials used in office areas and manufacturing processes。

Simon will set ongoing environmental goals and targets and will continue to minimize waste in all of its operations。”

Environmental achievement。

Environmental protection - always in the forefront of environmental protection, is one of the first ISO 14001 standard certification manufacturers。

ISO 14001 certified - All Simon manufacturing facilities worldwide are ISO 14001 certified and have independent environmental management systems。

Negative carbon emissions - Global negative carbon emissions are 179%。

Zero landfill - Over 99% of waste is recovered, reused or reprocessed in an environmentally sustainable manner。

Clean solar - in 2009, Simon dynamic's 217KW, 15,600 square foot solar system generated 216,000kWh of electricity。

By using solar energy, Simon reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 373,000 pounds a year -- the equivalent of burning more than 19,000 gallons of gasoline
