Welcome to Universal Medical
Environmental Responsibility

Energy Conservation and Emission Reduction

The company signed a safety, environmental protection and quality work objectives and responsibilities with the subordinate units, and effectively urged the units to fulfil the main responsibility for environmental protection, and adopted a series of energy-saving and emission reduction measures in the office premises and its hospitals, including:

  • Preferential purchase of energy-efficient electrical appliances, phasing out high energy-consumption lamps and replacing them with energy-saving lamps;

  • For the lighting of public places such as stairs, corridors, toilets, etc., automatic control devices such as time delay switches or induction switches with mature energy-saving technology should be installed as appropriate to prevent turning on the lights all the time;

  • For office equipment such as computers, copiers and fax machines, cut off the power in time when not in use to reduce standby consumption;

  • Strictly implement air-conditioning operation regulations, do not open doors and windows when the air-conditioning is turned on;

  • Strictly implement the Measures on Driver and Vehicle Management, promote sharing of official vehicles, and reduce separate dispatch of vehicles;

  • Adhere to standard driving, maintain on time, reduce abnormal loss of vehicle components, and strive to reduce fuel consumption and maintenance costs of vehicles;

  • Encourage short-distance commuting, walking, cycling or using public transportation such as subways and buses as much as possible.

The Group has continued to implement, promote and optimise energy conservation and emission reduction. During the reporting period, the Group did not have any violations in respect of emission throughout the year. In order to improve the treatment methods for medical waste and wastewater, the Group formulated the Measures for Supervision and Management of Environmental Protection and implemented a series of normative measures to manage the Group’s waste and wastewater discharge in a more refined manner. Some of measures that have been implemented are as follows:

  • We should deal with the hazardous wastes (including medical waste) stipulated in Directory of National Hazardous Wastes, strictly according to Law of the People’s Republic of China on the Prevention and Control of Environment Pollution Caused by Solid Wastes, and we shall not dispose the wastes randomly;

  • It is forbidden to dump or stack medical wastes or mix medical wastes with other wastes and domestic garbage in non-storage locations;

  • According to the category of medical waste, it is placed in special packaging or closed containers that prevent leakage and sharp penetration;

  • Special packaging and containers for medical waste should have obvious warning signs and instructions;

  • Wastewater, waste residues, waste oil, waste acid, alkali waste or toxic liquid are prohibited to enter into the drainage systems;

  • Industrial waste residues, rubbish and other solid waste are strictly prohibited to enter into the drainage systems;

  • The environmental protection management personnel of each medical institution shall count and record the types, quantities, and concentrations of pollutants discharged by the wastewater discharge facilities, treatment facilities and in normal operating conditions to ensure that the sewage discharge limit meets the relevant requirements of the Comprehensive Wastewater Discharge Standard.

Water Resources Usage

The Group’s daily water mainly comes from the municipal water supply network, so there is no difficulty in obtaining water. We advocate and encourage employees to save water during daily work. Some of the main water-saving measures are as follows:

  • Gradually replace faucets and sanitary ware in the office area with water-saving appliances to prevent water evaporating, emitting, dripping, leaking and flowing for a long time;

  • Regularly check whether exist water evaporating, emitting, dripping, leaking and flowing for a long time of water equipment, and the employees shall contact in time the relevant personnel for repair;

  • Check water usage during daily washing, not washing vehicles with high-pressure clean water.
