Risks and Opportunities

CP ALL Public Company Limited and its subsidiaries (“the Company”) emphasize sustainable waste and food waste management to reduce the risk of air pollution, water pollution, and soil pollution with potential to negatively impact nearby community health. With the Company food waste management policies aligned with the Zero Waste to Landfill by 2O3O approach to drive Goal 12 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, joint initiatives with partners were conceived to manage food surplus, food loss, food waste, and miscellaneous wastes from business operations. As a means to reduce risks in overconsuming resources within the manufacturing process, the "1P3Rs" guidelines of the Food and Agriculture Organization comprising 1) Prevention, 2) Reduction, 3) Reuse, and 4) Recycling were adopted.

Comprehensive waste management methods employed by the Company consists of database creation for business activities, ranging from upstream to downstream processes, encompassing processing, manufacturing, logistics, distribution to consumer purchases. In analyzing waste and food waste data, inclusive of intra- and interorganizational resource consumption, wastes and food wastes are examined according to proportions, composition, and type. The results lead to decisive strategies and measures to reduce losses throughout the supply chain.

Management Approach

CP ALL Public Company Limited and its subsidiaries (“the Company”) realize the importance of sustainable waste and food waste management. The Company has established food loss and waste management policies with goals to reduce waste management through the Zero Waste to Landfill approach by 2030. In addition, the Company strives to drive the social sector through its operations and contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 12 on Responsible Consumption and Production. The Company has implemented comprehensive waste management policies through establishing a food waste database which classifies waste by business activities from upstream to downstream operations from entire production process and product distribution channels until the product reaches the consumer. The mentioned system collects loss and food waste data through rigorous operations and accurate measurements thus permitting the Company to assess utilized resources and waste generation from both intra-organizational and inter-organizational processes. The system additionally enables analysis of proportion, composition and types of waste and food waste thus solidifies determination of appropriate strategies and measures to reduce losses throughout the supply chain.

In addition, the Company has continually cooperated with business suppliers to manage waste and food waste as a means to reduce air and water pollution risks potentially impacting the health of nearby communities. The Company has the capacity to manage all waste types comprising Food Surplus, Food Loss, Food Waste and other waste categories through applying the Food and Agriculture Organization guidelines and “1P3Rs” principles: 1) Prevention, 2) Reduction, Utilization, 3) Reuse, and 4) Recycling according to the circular economy concept. The stated approach reduces resource overutilization risks throughout the production process inclusive of reducing negative environmental impacts and waste management expenses.
