Mainetti management board has a very strong focus in sustainability. The group runs a continuous improvement plan called Plan M which leads and raises awareness to all staff members via all daily activities toward energy saving, environmental protection & sustainable development.

The factory has already applied various solutions towards sustainability. Natural lighting in factory & warehouse is optimized from skylight. T5 bulbs are used to provide ambient light together with process lights for better illumination (LPD surpasses EEBC requirements by 73%). Rain water is collected for irrigation usage (4 rainwater tanks allow 51 % of domestic water reduction for landscaping). Domestic water use is also reduced. In addition to saving electricity and water, Mainetti makes its efforts to help further protect environment such as shuttle bus (58% of occupant trips are made by collective transportation) & waste segregation for recycling or reuse).

 
Though the performance is quite good compared with LOTUS BIO baselines, Mainetti continues to improve its factory & office operation in order to lower the cost and demonstrate a strong commitment toward a greener environment in Vietnam.
