ENERGY USE & EMISSION

This year marks our inaugural disclosure

on our CO

2

emission using tools adopted

from the Greenhouse Gas Protocol

to monitor and measure the Group’s

CO

2

emissions. Over the last year, we

have initiated analysis and tracking of

our CO

2

emission and energy use. As

we are committed to developing our

measurement of energy and CO

2

, we

will continue to refine our reporting

criteria and progressively enhance our

disclosures.

Efficient energy use is a key business

concern. Improving our energy efficiency

not only reduces the use of natural

resources and emissions of CO₂ and

other pollutants but also potentially

REPORT 2017

lowers costs. As an organization with

operations in 3 countries, the Group

is subjected to a wide range of energy

supply constraints and commercial

pressures and therefore uses a wide

range of fuels.

The other factor in the Group’s energy

trends is the underlying efficiency of

our plants. A robust approach to energy

management is therefore crucial across

our businesses and all regularly review

their operational performance and

respond appropriately. This year, a

series of detailed efficiency performance

tests was carried out by the Group’s

Engineering Department on all boilers

within the Group’s businesses. The test

had several objectives, chief among

them is to provide our businesses with

long term maintenance planning and

identifying boilers that need replacing.

We emit GHG both directly and indirectly.

Our largest impact in terms of emissions

is direct (scope 1) emissions mainly come

from our businesses use of petrol, gas

and diesel. Our main source of indirect

(scope 2) emissions is electricity used

in our manufacturing and processing

operations.
