Mr Wuthichai Sitthipreedanant, Senior Vice President for Social Responsibility and Sustainable Development of CPF, asserted that the company has joined the world in mitigating climate change-induced environmental impacts through renewable energy and energy conservation and the policy has been exercised continually. In 2020, CPF targets to reduce Scope 1 GHG emissions (direct emissions from fuel sources) and Scope 2 GHG emissions (energy supply from outside sources) by 15 percent compared to the base year 2015.

While biogas at pig farms is turned to energy fuel, wastewater is treated before "fertiliser water" is released to nearby communities which earn a living through corn, napier grass and sugar cane plantation. The water has helped ease water shortage in the dry season.

"CPF promotes renewable energy and energy efficiency under the Circular Economy concept. We have emphasised the mitigation of impacts from climate change throughout the value chain, under our goal to raise green revenue and achieve sustainable growth," Mr Wuthichai said.
