As a responsible corporate, we are aware of the risks that climate change presents to our business, society and the planet, and the necessity to reduce Green House Gas (GHG) emissions across our value chains for a greener future.
As we proactively implement mitigation measures to address our emissions, we recognize that the bulk of our emissions stem from our value chains. Thus, to achieve this ambitious target of limiting global temperature rise to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, we engage our stakeholders including our suppliers to manage and reduce GHG emissions beyond our factory.
