Environment and Climate

Commitment to preserving the environment and minimizing impact of our operations on the planet

Technological Developments and Upgrades Resulting in Financials and Environmental Benefits

Over the past 5 years, we worked to create space in the factory and used the technological advantages to improve efficiency.

Energy Management

Energy efficiency and energy sourcing have a direct impact on climate change. We are committed to conducting our business with minimal climate impact. This topic highlights energy consumption and sourcing practices of SADAFCO.

Water Management

Access to fresh water is essential to human life and is also a human right, as recognised by the UN. We endeavour to utilise this scarce resource responsibly. This topic relates to the holistic water management efforts of the Company towards reducing water wastage, improving efficiencies in water consumption, and identifying the potential for using non-freshwater resources.

Waste Management

Waste disposal in a landfill or by incineration is an inefficient method that potentially poses a health hazard for society. SADAFCO aims to implement the best waste management practices utilising the principles of 3R (reduce, reuse, and recycle) to dispose off waste more responsibly and minimise the environmental impacts. This topic relates to hazardous and non-hazardous waste generated by the organisation and its 3R strategy.

Sustainable Sourcing & Packaging

We are working to reduce the impact of packaging on the environment and sourcing raw materials sustainably. This topic relates to sourcing raw materials and packaging and includes initiatives to move toward more sustainable sourcing and packaging practices.
