The natural environment is fundamental for the survival of humans and animals. At present, our natural environment is facing various threats, including energy shortage, depletion of natural resources, environmental pollution, and global climate change. We continue to take various innovative and effective measures to reduce the negative impacts on the environment during the entire production process and make efforts to protect the homes of humans and animals.
WH Group respects the natural environment, which we all rely on to survive. We hope that through our own efforts, we will minimize damage to the environment and maintain Earth’s stability and sustainability. Our priority is the rational and healthy utilization of ecological resources to ensure that our production and operation are carried out within the environmental capacity and ultimately reduce the impact on the surrounding ecological environment. Over the years, the efficiency of rearing hogs has improved, which not only generates economic benefits, but also reduces emissions from manure and the Group’s demand for agricultural land.
Reducing carbon emissions
Climate change is undoubtedly one of the most important challenges faced by the planet today. Our business inevitably emits greenhouse gases, but we are working hard to continuously improve energy efficiency to reduce greenhouse gas emissions per unit of production capacity.
The majority of WH Group’s direct greenhouse gas emissions (Scope 1) are from our vehicle fleet and the use of fossil fuels in our plants. Our indirect greenhouse gas emissions (Scope 2) come from the use of purchased electricity and steam. Accordingly, we have enhanced the overall carbon reduction benefits in three aspects:
- Improved the machinery to enhance energy efficiency
- Promoted the use of renewable energy
- Optimized distribution and transportation routes to improve efficiency
