As an essential part of the circular economy model at BAT Vietnam, effective zero waste to landfill campaign is another significant highlight.
Apart from doing business and manufacturing sustainably as well as efficiently supporting partners, BAT always attaches great importance to social responsibility and activities contributing towards community. Recently, BAT announced its ambitious environmental goals in its ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) Report 2020, which includes: “100% of all manufacturing sites to have zero waste to landfill by 2025.”
Following the journey to implement this goal in different countries, on April 1, BAT has officially announced the completion of its commitment to zero waste at its factories in Vietnam, including VINA-BAT Joint Venture Company Limited and BAT-VINATABA Tobacco Joint Venture Company. This is not only a result of BAT Vietnam’s ability to soon fulfill its commitment to the Group, but also a proof indicating the whole efforts of the companies.
Since 2009, INSEE Ecocycle has cooperated with BAT Vietnam in collecting and treating industrial waste and hazardous waste. All waste, including classified domestic waste, is granted to treat by INSEE Ecocycle’s co-processing solution in cement kiln. After agreeing on specific times and places, INSEE Ecocycle collects waste which was sorted at source from BAT’ sites, then transports them to INSEE factory in Hon Chong-Kien Giang for thorough treatment.
By promoting goals such as developing a model to reduce water use, reuse waste sources, or waste-sorting at source and transfer them to INSEE Ecocycle as mentioned above, BAT has been implementing the goal of sustainable development in a comprehensive way. According to the representative of BAT Vietnam, the implementation of waste collection and treatment by Co-processing technology is in line with BAT’s ESG agenda, from which they commit to building a better environment with greenness. After more than 12 years of companionship, INSEE Ecocycle is proud to be a trusted partner, contributing to the sustainable development of businesses and environment. INSEE Ecocycle is always ready to accompany corporates in the journey of implementing sustainable development towards the goal of zero waste to landfill, because tomorrow matters!
