The Paris Agreement on climate change is an indicator that managing climate change and its impacts is everyone’s business. Global environmental risks such as climate change, resource consumption and waste management have an increasingly negative impact on our oceans which in turn threatens marine species on which we depend. The way we operate has to be environmentally responsible and also show a duty of care for our workers in the way we operate. We have initiatives in place that contribute to water reduction, waste to landfill reduction, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and accident reduction. We want everyone who works for Thai Union to play an active role in delivering against our environmental and safety goals – we see safety and environmental protection as everyone’s business. We also strive to make advances in our occupational health and safety policies; continually strengthening our safety standards, procedures and processes.
With production facilities and offices across all our major markets, we are conscious of our responsibility to limit our environmental impact as much as possible. Our GHG reduction efforts will focus on improving operational efficiency; investing in more energy efficient equipment; developing and deploying innovations in new technologies; and promoting renewable energy.
We are developing a plan to integrate new materials and process innovations to ensure that we significantly reduce the environmental impact of producing and disposing of our packaging.
We will encourage and empower our stakeholders to implement and support GHG reduction initiatives; through training and awards.
We have a significant program in place to promote safe work practices. We train staff on safe operating procedures and also to actively contribute to the improvement of our workplace environments.
