Thailand’s CP Foods (CPF) aims to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. It has adopted clean technology in its supply chain, said Peerapong Krinchai, Executive Vice President for Corporate Engineering. About 27% of CPF’s total energy consumption comes from renewable sources, like solar energy, biogas, and biomass. It targets to produce 100 megawatts of electricity from solar power by 2025. CPF will phase out its use of coal in Thailand by end-2022 and switch to biomass energy, he said. Its layer farms use biogas from chicken manure to generate electricity.
