New sustainable efforts at the ball factory
An installation of 404 solar panel modules on the rooftop at our ball supplier Anwar Khawaja Industries factory in Sialkot, Pakistan has been ompleted. The installation is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by 270 tons annually. The factory is also ISO 14001 environmental certified and SMETA 4-pillar certified.
Our social responsibility goes a long way back with a focus on Anwar Khawaja Industries (AKI), where all our hand-stitched balls are produced. To help our sewing staff and their families as much as possible, we have, together with AKI, developed the SAHEP – SELECT AKI Health & Education Programme.
SAHEP provides workers and their families - over 6,000 people in total - with free medical care and medicine, as well as offering special education for all children.
SELECT considers SAHEP to be an integral part of our corporate culture and our social responsibility. The programme also helps us maintain our high quality as it promotes our sewing staff’s loyalty to SELECT and AKI.
AKI has also been environmentally certified in accordance with the ISO 14001:2015 standard. ISO 14001 is the most recognised international standard for environmental management systems. It is used worldwide.
