We believe that Corporate Social Responsibility is the continuing commitment by a business to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the workforce and their families as well as of the local community and society at large. Year after year our clients choose to work with us because we are focused on a healthier and more productive world. They can rely on us to develop their products while adhering to the highest standards of energy efficiency and employee health.


Factories which we represent are implementing many changes. They are specifically geared towards having a positive impact on the environment as well as on the communities in which we operate. There is a strong commitment to a more environment friendly approach in all our activities. Thus Midas has developed an Environmental Management System to:

  • Set and achieve aggressive environmental objectives
  • Convert fossil fuel equipment to new sustainable bio-mass equipment wherever possible
  • Conform to applicable laws and standards through continual improvement of systems and processes
  • Provide ongoing employee training to improve environmental awareness
  • Involve local communities

Energy

Keeping in mind the huge negative impact that non-renewable sources of energy have on our planet, Midas and its associates are continually making efforts to use alternative energy sources which are renewable, free and have lower carbon emissions.

  • Bio-mass heaters: Using Sawdust/Gliricidia and rubber wood, saving 15 million liters of imported fossil fuel per year.
  • Vapor Absorption Chillers used to cool down water: Unlike electrical chillers, these are powered by heat and can run on a variety of heat sources, e.g. steam, hot water, liquid/gaseous fuels, exhaust gases or a combination of above.
  • Water and air pre-heaters utilize waste heat to preheat the water for our production processes.
  • Hybrid solar air conditioners improve energy efficiency using a renewable energy source
  • Solar Power System: Installing solar panels that are able to supply electricity for our offices
  • LED lights: Switching from tube lights to LED tube lights.
  • VFD Inverters saving up to 81 units/hr electrical consumption

Material

By minimising the use of non-recyclable materials and using sustainable methods of production, our aim is to lead by example towards a cleaner, greener environment.

  • Polybags: Printing on bags instead of using paper labels and reducing bag sizes
  • Better Cotton Initiative (BCI): Working with BCI to reduce the environmental impact of cotton production
  • Electronic Waste: Managing electronic waste in collaboration with a leading e-waste management service provider
  • Waste Water treatment plants: Onsite facilities to treat waste waters so that pollutant concentrations in it comply with the local regulations regarding disposal of waste waters.


Midas and its associates are 100% committed to contributing to communities by being socially responsible in all our actions, and we want our business partners to support us to make the world a better place for our future generations.


Employee Welfare

As a global manufacturer of safety gloves keeping our employees safe, healthy and happy is our priority. We realize how important health, shelter and family are for everyone. We believe in the personal growth of our employees and thus we have helped improve their living standards by building and renovating their homes, providing scholarships to their children and by providing them with free medical check-ups regularly.


EDUCATIONAL WELFARE

Education is the key to success and the standard of life depends much on it. Consequently, Midas Safety is active in aiding children through scholarships. Because of our belief that education is the key to a better world, Midas provides scholarships for girls and has helped special kids with necessary things such as school bags so that nothing comes in between them and their dream of a bright future.


HEALTH WELFARE

Health welfare is an integral part of the Midas CSR agenda. Playing our part in contributing to a healthy society, we have provided medical equipment, ambulance, drugs and other accessories to government hospitals. We also regularly set up blood donation campaigns for health welfare.


DISASTER RELIEF

Disaster relief is also an integral part of our CSR activities and Midas Safety is always ready to help by providing essential goods for flood victims and displaced people. To facilitate river water transport, boats have also been made available for people to travel with ease.
