The Design Center is currently conducting various researches for enhancing productivity and reducing packing material weight and volume to reduce carbon dioxide. The design center is also making numerous attempts to improve consumers’ convenience through packing material renewal and functionalization.

Packing material components and material type downscaled design(Uni-material)

Upper cap + Lower container + Pin , Upper cap + Lower container Combined parts enlarged

We changed the container design of ‘Age’s 20 Essence Pact Season 5’, The big hit cosmetic in 2015, By removing the pin required for combining the cap and the container to reduce the number of parts and materials for eco-friendly design. Besides, in order to maintain moisture of the product, We enhanced sealing of the container and increased consumers’ satisfaction. Through the process, The previous version with double injection was transformed to single injection which increased the productivity by 150%. This also enabled us to achieve additional effect of carbon dioxide reduction while producing packing materials.

Currently, We are consistently developing ‘Age’s 20 Essence Pact’ to improve the existing drawbacks and carrying out various researches to introduce innovative products with new functions.

Response to Climate Change

AEKYUNG, Smart Green Management Case Study

Safety and Health Training Materials

By carrying out greenhouse gas emission reduction activity in every stage of producing Smart Green Liquid Detergent ‘LiQ’,
We could reduce total 1,432ton CO2 for two years. The amount is equal to the annual amount of carbon dioxide absorbed by 217,000 pine trees 30 years ago and when it is converted to the amount of power consumption, It gives the effect of saving about KRW 100,000 electricity bill per household for 5,000 households (with 4 family members).
Even in the following years, We plan to develop eco-friendly products though active implementation of low carbon dioxide product development process and continue to expand activities to practice ‘Smart Green Management’.
