Energy Management

Energy Efficiency

Risks and Opportunities


Energy is an irrefutable part of today’s livelihood and a fundamental key component of all human activities in fulfilling their basis needs, such as powering electronics, transportation, production and services. However, the increasing need for energy, larger populations and economic expansion all impact climate change. Therefore, the Company has continuously developed technology to generate electricity from renewable energy, such as solar, wind, geothermal, and biomass. In addition to the mentioned sources of energy, water is a potential source of renewable energy in the future. More importantly, water is a critical resource for sustaining life and operating the business. Thus, the Company emphasizes on efficient management of water, risk mitigation for utilizing water in areas prone to water scarcity and supporting projects on increasing efficient consumption and conservation of water. These actions aim to lessen the degradation of natural resources, improve natural resource utilization, and mitigate the impact of climate change.

Management Approach


The Company has implemented energy management on a national and regional scale with all sectors of society through its “7 Go Green” strategy. The strategy has raised the level of the management and efficient utilization of energy according to the ISO 14001 environmental management systems and set proactive operation goals. Several projects were initiated under the strategy, such as the Green Store Project, Green Logistics Project, Green Packaging Project and Green Living Project. Furthermore, the Company implemented efficient water management throughout the supply chain through risk mitigation of water scarcity, increased proportions of recycling and reusing treated water, and endorsement of water consumption consciousness in the organization and surrounding communities. Even though the International Energy Agency (IEA) reported that water consumption was reduced by 6% during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Company is committed to continuing its conservation of energy and natural resources to reduce environmental impact and increase its business capability while sustainably developing the organization.

Efficient Energy Management by Increasing the Proportion of Renewable Energy Utilization

The Company implemented its efficient energy management and exhibited its stance on being environmentally friendly through the “7 Go Green” strategy. Through the strategy, it has made efficient energy management tangible and increased the proportion of renewable energy used. These actions have led to lower energy expenses, lower GHG emissions and lower operation expenses. In 2021, the following projects were implemented.

Expansion of System Optimization, including the Installation of Energy Saving Equipment in 7-Eleven Stores

  • Installation of cooling coils for refrigeration vaults in 1,045 stores, which reduced an average energy consumption of 229.22 kWh per store per month
  • Installation of inverter type air conditioners in 1,335 stores, which reduced an average energy consumption of 1,200 kWh per store per month
  • Optimization of store lighting with LED lighting products in 958 stores, which reduced an average energy consumption of 68.1 kWh per store per month
  • Optimization of the cooling system in product displays without doors into a centralized system in 1,792 stores, which reduced an average energy consumption of 1,551 kWh per store per month
  • Monitoring system for energy consumption in 5 7-Eleven stores to collect data and analyze the performance of various equipment, such as refrigerators and air conditioners. The system will continuously monitor, calculate and provide maintenance alerts when the system has detected any abnormalities before malfunction

Reducing Fuel Consumption in Logistics

CP ALL Plc. is determined to make its logistics system more environmentally friendly. The Green Logistics Project placed emphasis on the management of energy through the reduction of fuel consumption in transportation and GHG emissions under the “7 Go Green” strategy. In 2021, various projects were implemented as follow.
