Contributing to Society

Home > Intro. > Corporate Philosophy
In the pursuit of growing of our business, we at the same time wish to bring new experiences into people’s living spaces. Although providing a responsible, innovative product to the public is our main priority, being conscious of our precious resources and the protection of the environment we inhabit is another focal point when manufacturing our products.
 
Simplified Packaging
Less is more. Instead of using the traditional luxury packaging concept, we choose the most effective methods when packaging our products. We have cooperated with our protective film suppliers to develop a special film that is able to cover the product completely and reduce as much as 70% of the packaging compared to traditional methods. For products that need box-packaging, all materials are recyclable and come from a sustainable source, this significantly reduces carbon emissions. 
 
Timber Originating From Well Managed Forests
Forest resources are our most valuable asset. We are a company that has proudly attained the Forest Stewardship CouncilTM Chain of Custody certification. We do our best to maximize efficiency when utilizing these natural resources. Hard work has also been done with our wood suppliers to ensure that all of the sources come from well managed forests.
   
Building Talents in the Forestry Industry
Every year, we recruit management trainees from forestry related departments on campus to enable these individuals to make good use of their professional skills in their future career. We also give lectures to interior design majors, sharing wood material knowledge and new ideas from the industry. As we value the growth of our employees, we provide various learning opportunities and abundant resources under "KD Development Project" to assist them in gaining professional skills and understanding our company culture.

Building Libraries in Remote Areas
In 2011 we joined forces with E. Sun bank to promote the “Golden Seeds”project, which consisted of the construction of libraries in remote areas in Taiwan. This project aimed to increase the reading skills of children who lived in rural places lacking resources.
 
Sponsorship for Design Department Exhibitions
Students of design often need a part-time job to cover all the costs of participating in their graduation exhibition. In order to reduce this heavy burden for these students, we constantly provide them with materials at no cost and as a result, we allow them to have more time to focus on designing and less time working.
 
No Hazardous Material Use
All materials used during production, from wood logs, to packaging materials are all non-toxic, eco-friendly and recyclable. With the topic of global warming intensifying more and more, companies must take action and set an example to stop the deterioration of our planet.
 
Committed to the Research and Development of Low Formaldehyde Products
It is normal to detect the organic compound formaldehyde in our daily lives. However, being exposed to high volumes of Formaldehyde can be harmful to the human body. As a result of this, we constantly focus on research and the development of ways to produce products with low formaldehyde content. At this time, the formaldehyde content in our products is lower than the accepted standard content of the European Union, Ministry of Economic Affairs, R.O.C. and JAS. It is our company’s priority to bring our clients a safe and healthy product.
 
Overseas Business Trip Reduction
With the use of internet, communications are done via email and Skype with overseas suppliers. For overseas branches, KEDING employs foreign locals in each location with the aim of reducing the costs of overseas business trips and carbon dioxide emissions.
 
Efficient Paper Usage
We at KEDING cherish every valuable resource; therefore, papers are used twice prior to recycling. Substantially reducing more than 50% of paper that is used.
