COVID-19 has continued to face issues in FY2020, including a shortage of raw materials and rising freight costs. Due to dwindling global demand, some raw and product materials have been squandered in manufacturing plants around the world, resulting in higher non-hazardous waste output in FY2020. DyStar acknowledges the global issues at play and will continue to make active efforts to reduce its environmental footprint within the organization's capabilities in the years ahead.
The Group has set a goal of decreasing its production footprint by 30% per tonne of production by 2025, compared to 2011 levels.
