SADAFCO Reinforces Commitment to Sustainable Practice with “Towards Sustainability” Strategy

Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, gulftech: Saudia Dairy and Foodstuff Company (SADAFCO) reinforces their commitment to operate sustainably through their “Towards Sustainability” strategy. The implementation of the company-wide effort to reduce carbon footprint, energy use, water consumption and food wastage is the latest in a series of initiatives supporting the company-wide strategy to operate sustainability across all business units.
SADAFCO’s “Towards Sustainability” strategy kicked off in 2018 with the implementation of initiatives including GreenBox, Smart Electronic Fueling System and Solar Panels in offices and factories. As a result, for the period of Jan 2020 up to Oct 2020, Jeddah Ice Cream Factory sent 224.6 MT of mixed materials for recycling. In addition, Jeddah Milk Factory’s water consumption was reduced from 1.55 liter per pack in 2017 to 1.38 litre per pack in 2020.
SADAFCO’s facilities, which joined the Green Box Community in January 2018, have successfully saved 58,826 litres of water to date. In 2019, the Dammam factory received the GreenBox Contribution Certificate from InfoFort, a testament to the ongoing efforts and achievements of SADAFCO in driving sustainable practices across the company, protecting not only the communities in which it operates in but reducing its impact on the environment globally. Achievements include offsetting 27 tones of CO2 and saving 37 trees.
Through its partnership with Tera Pack, SADAFCO successfully reviewed and improved its recycling mechanisms of packaging material. As a result of the initiative, SADAFCO recorded a 20% reduction in operational wastage over a two-year period.
“At SADAFCO, we are strongly committed to implementing sustainable practices across all our operations, and addressing our product packaging is a key part of our strategy towards reducing our carbon footprint. Renewable resources emit a lower carbon footprint than fossil-based plastic, which means our new packaging has a much lower impact on climate change.” said Wout Matthijs, Chief Executive Officer, SADAFCO.
Matthijs added, “Safeguarding our planet and the communities we operate in is a key focus for SADAFCO, and we are committed to supporting environmental sustainability and operating responsibly across all business areas. Our commitment is underpinned by our dedication, through a series of strategic implementations, to effectively, and measurably reduce our environmental impact.”
