Energy Saving

In accordance with the Environmental Policy, Yihai Kerry constantly enhances energy management, strictly complies with relevant laws and regulations of the place of operation and continuously monitors energy consumption through the data management platform. The Company continuously improves energy management level, and carries out energy-saving technology transformation, energy efficiency improvement actions and other measures to reduce energy consumption.

 

Energy Management

Energy Management System

Yihai Kerry encourages all factories to establish energy management system in accordance with ISO 50001 standard to improve their energy management level.

 

As of December 2021, 37 factories under Yihai Kerry had obtained energy management system certification, accounting for 36.3% of the total number of factories (excluding those newly built, rebuilt and out of service), and the number will continue to increase in the future.

 

Data Monitoring Platform

The PIMS data monitoring system and Enablon data statistics platform established by Yihai Kerry continuously track and record energy consumption data of the factories, and the energy management team periodically analyses and evaluates these energy consumption data and put forward recommendations to factories for improvement.

 

As of December 2021, the energy consumption monitoring had covered 100% of the factories under Yihai Kerry (excluding those newly built, rebuilt and out of service).

 

Reducing Energy Consumption

Continuous Energy-saving Actions

Yihai Kerry encourages all factories to continuously carry out energy-saving actions every year to reduce energy consumption and improve energy efficiency.

 

From January to October 2021, 75 factories under Yihai Kerry had carried out energy-saving actions, accounting for 73.5% of the total number of factories (excluding those newly built, rebuilt and out of service). A total of 257 energy-saving projects have been implemented, with an investment of more than RMB 300 million. Through waste heat recovery, changing to high-efficiency equipments, installation of LED lighting fixtures, installation of frequency conversion regulators and other energy-saving methods, a total of 24,741,265 kWh of electricity, 55,989 tons (7,000 kcal/kg) of coal, 6,530,377 Nm3 (8,000 kcal/Nm3) of natural gas and 5,486 tons (10,000 kcal/kg) of fuel had been saved.

 

From January to October 2021, a total of 205,500 tons of CO2 emissions were reduced by energy-saving actions.

 

Energy Consumption Statistics

Yihai Kerry actively reduces energy consumption through various energy-saving measures, and through the continuous efforts and improvement, energy intensity has been significantly reduced. Compared to 2016, the energy intensity of factories under Yihai Kerry (excluding those newly built, rebuilt and out of service) had dropped by 27.7%.
