FRIDAY 11th Sept

The Green Factory Initiative

In 2013, Harith began his journey to revamping his traditional wood manufacturing business by placing sustainability at the core of the company’s mission and became one of the earlier makers of quality industrial interiors made from upcycled construction materials. Since then, he has received both local & international attention for his advocacy for green lifestyle products made from sustainable timber, including Japan’s 2018 Good Design Award for his The Green Factory initative and the 2018 Europa Sustainability Awards for his company’s environmental impact efforts by an SME corporation. Under his wing, his company has also founded 7 brands and exported products to more than 20 countries.

The Green Factory initative is a green holistic approach to manufacturing and the study of the whole product lifecycle. In order to make each process more sustainable, it was vital to consider each step of the manufacturing process - from the sourcing, to design, to manufacturing, to branding, to packaging, and finally the overall system implementation.

The Green Carpenter continues to advocate Malaysia’s growing mindfulness for green design, sustainable consumption, and proper management of local forests. He also hopes to increase consumers’ confidence in Malaysia’s sustainable product offerings and continues to encourage more local manufacturers to adopt greener materials and processes for the betterment of our local timber industry and natural ecosystem.
