Making big changes requires a far-reaching, panoramic vision. These are the targets we've set our sights on, which we plan to achieve by 2025.
TARGETS BY 2025
50% of our carbon emission will be reduced
100% of our in-house foam waste will be recycled and reused in production process
Use renewable energy to power our production facilities
80% of our freshwater usage will be cut down

- Producing zero waste
- Sustainable Material
- Carbon Footprint Verification
of our carbon emissions will be reduced by 2025.
Producing zero waste
Instead of throw it into landfill, we will recycle our in-house production waste and reused them in the next production process.
We continually develop materials with higher recycled content and bio content that reduce the usage of fossil fuels and chemicals.
Carbon Footprint Verification
Currently we are working with consultant company on carbon footprint verification in factories and our materials, this will allow us to provide our customers a transparent product carbon footprint by end of 2022.
Our path to creating zero waste by 2025 consists of 3 core practices:
- Closed-loop manufacturing
- Partner recycle program
- Material innovation
of our foam waste will be recycled and reused into production process by 2025.
DSC has been incorporating closed-loop manufacturing into our product line for the past 50 years. We’ve designed a system that allow us to store the in-house production waste, regrind and reuse them in the next production cycle.
Partner recycle program
To help meet our customers’ enormous demand for recycled materials, we’ ve rolled out waste recycle program with our local partners in Vietnam, recyling more production waste from our partner factories.
A huge step toward meeting our 2025 zero-waste goal came from our R&D team, which successfully developed a foam material that is made from 100% recycled PU waste—the Dreamcell ZERO.
We are currently using solar energy to power lights, air conditioning, and hot water in multiple factories across southeast Asia. To further reduce our GHG emissions, DSC is continually working to widen the scope of its solar energy program to supply power for factory operation needs.
Expand the renewable energy to power
of our freshwater usage will be cut down
We are currently implementing both water-saving devices and rain harvesting systems in our facilities in Asia in order to minimize freshwater usage. As our efforts expand and further water preservation and recycling methods are implemented, we project that the percentage of freshwater we’re saving can be increased to 80% by 2025.
