All its domestic businesses set to be certified by third and second parties within this year to ensure a solid performance in the area of sustainability throughout the organization, according to its press statement.
Virachai Ratanabanchuen, CPF Chief Operating Officer, said the standard has been drafted specifically for the company’s business to mitigate the impact on the environment and communities, using international principles as a guideline.
It aims to reduce risks on health and safety of those who work with the company and, consequently, decrease operating cost, helping the company to achieve sustainable goals.
“The company also plan to extend the certification process to overseas operations. The employees from all 16 countries where the company is operated will be trained to make sure that the operation will run smoothly, consistently and with the highest effectiveness across the world.”
The standard consists of two aspects including Management Standards and Technical Standards. Both parts are in compliance with highly recognized standards such as ISO14001, OHSAS18001, ISO50001 as well as regulations and demands from the government and customers.
The global concerns such as health and safety, natural resources & energy consumptions and global warming will also be taken into account in every business operation.
Recently, CPF’s food processing plants in Nongjok and Nakhon Ratchasima Chicken Breed Business, a local breeding farm, have been certified at “Excellent” level by AJA Registrars, an independent third party certification body, and internal auditors respectively. Both businesses are the first two business units that have been certified the standard.
