Nippon Paint (Chengdu) Co., Ltd. was included in the list of “near-zero carbon” pilot projects in Chengdu

Latest News: This month, the Chengdu Municipal Bureau of Ecology and Environment, together with the Municipal Development and Reform Commission, the Municipal Social Affairs Commission, the Municipal Economic and Information Bureau, the Municipal Education Bureau, the Municipal Bureau of Culture, Broadcasting, and Tourism, and the Municipal Office of Public Affairs, jointly issued a notice. The first batch of establishment units of the city’s near-zero carbon emission zone pilots was announced, and Nippon Paint (Chengdu) Co., Ltd. was listed as a “near-zero carbon emission industrial enterprise pilot”.

“Low-carbon-near-zero-carbon-zero-carbon” emissions are the basic path and necessary process for the realization of the “dual-carbon” strategic goal, and near-zero carbon is an important transitional stage to achieve carbon neutrality. The near-zero carbon emission area in Chengdu refers to the selection of specific areas on the basis of the existing low-carbon pilot work, through optimizing the energy structure of space industry transportation, developing low-carbon technology and economy, strengthening low-carbon management and ecological construction, and advocating green and low-carbon life. Concept and other comprehensive measures to achieve no anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions or anthropogenic greenhouse gas emission sources and carbon sinks approaching a balance [2].

Nippon Paint (Chengdu) Co., Ltd. was officially completed and put into operation at the end of 2007. It is one of Nippon Paint’s important paint production bases and a key part of Nippon Paint’s supply chain layout in western China. In 2020, Nippon Paint (Chengdu) Co., Ltd. was recognized as a “National Green Factory” by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. Since the establishment of the factory, Nippon Paint (Chengdu) Co., Ltd. has continuously established, improved and implemented various green development management systems, and formulated various environmental protection-related operating procedures, emergency preparedness and response management methods.

Nippon Paint (Chengdu) Co., Ltd. strictly implements clean production. By upgrading product formulations to be “non-toxic” and “harmless”, the production line is automated and standardized, and waste water, waste gas, etc. are regularly monitored and analyzed. The treatment process is optimized, and the pollutant emission is continuously reduced, and it has been recognized as a “domestic clean production advanced enterprise” level. At the same time, Nippon Paint (Chengdu) Co., Ltd. continuously strengthens the construction of energy management system, and utilizes various energy-saving measures such as frequency conversion energy-saving technology, solar photovoltaic power generation, infrared energy-saving stoves, thermal insulation walls, and forklift “oil-to-electricity”. Improve the efficiency of energy utilization and harvest good carbon reduction benefits.

Nippon Paint (Chengdu) Co., Ltd. specially set up the “Green Factory Work Management Leading Group”, which is responsible for creating annual goals and implementation plans, and establishing a normalized publicity and education mechanism, continuing to carry out near-zero carbon emission publicity activities, and strengthening employees’ awareness of energy conservation and emission reduction , to ensure the smooth implementation of various energy-saving and emission-reduction programs.


Nippon Paint continues to deepen green and intelligent manufacturing, and promotes the realization of low-carbon transformation of the industrial chain

With its outstanding performance in energy utilization, resource environment, technology, and operation management, Nippon Paint (Chengdu) Co., Ltd. was successfully selected into the list of “Near-Zero Carbon Emission Industrial Enterprise Pilots”. Next, Nippon Paint (Chengdu) Co., Ltd. will further plan and implement the goals of carbon reduction and consumption reduction under the overall planning and guidance of relevant departments, and give full play to the role of demonstration and lead, actively share beneficial experience, and help explore “Chengdu” characteristics. “Near-zero carbon” construction path to promote economic and social acceleration of green and low-carbon transformation.

Promoting the realization of the “dual carbon” goal is not only the mission of the country, but also the responsibility of the enterprise. As of 2021
At the end of the year, including Nippon Paint (Chengdu) Co., Ltd., Nippon Paint has five factories recognized as “National Green Factory” by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, and three factories were recognized as “Provincial Green Factory”, which are at the forefront of the industry. In the future, Nippon Paint will continue to aim at intelligent manufacturing and green production, transform towards the direction of low energy consumption, low emission, high efficiency and intensiveness, and do its best to promote the harmonious coexistence of man and nature, and sustain the “colorful” hobgoblin.
