Increasing waste volume, triggered by population growth, consumption trends, and industrialization, has become a global problem requiring the business world to take responsibility. We deem the waste problem as one of our substantial environmental impacts and take responsibility to combat this issue. We joined the Business World Plastic Initiative in 2019, which guides the business community to combat against plastic pollution. As per our membership requirements, we make a commitment to reducing plastic waste and design our waste management practices accordingly. We focus on preventing the use of single-use plastic, and recycle plastic waste or reuse it for different purposes.
We recycle waste on a circular economy basis, thereby reducing waste and ensuring financial savings. We make waste management a part of our approach to the efficient use of resources that forms the basis of our business processes.
"We recycled 20% of the water we consumed in 2019. The amount of wastewater we discharged to receiving water bodies in the last three years has decreased by 17%."
As we attach importance to the recycling of packaging materials, we prefer using recyclable materials to help manage packaging waste, which is a common problem in many sectors. Food waste is a major global issue. To mitigate this issue, we implement good practices in the retail industry.
