Over the years, CP Cambodia – a subsidiary of Charoen Pokphand Foods (CPF) – has utilised remarkable concepts in developing sustainable business practices, said Kittiphop Thirachotikun, Assistant Vice-President of the Sustainable Development Department at CP Cambodia.

“At CPF, we drive sustainable development under the ‘CPF 2030 Sustainability in Action’ strategy.

“The strategy was developed from our ‘Three Pillars of Sustainability’ – ‘Food Security’, ‘Self-Sufficient Society’ and ‘Balance of Nature’.

“These concepts are carefully applied in Cambodia, based, for example, on the area of doing business and the situation,” Kittiphop said.

Food Security

CP supports Cambodian people in being able to access good quality and hygienic food. The company operates a school canteen project, which educates students in rural areas on understanding how to select and cook good food.

With CP providing a variety of food products – such as chicken meat, pork meat, sausages and eggs – for the cooking demonstrations, students enjoy learning in a happy environment.

Self-Sufficient Society

Aiming to work with nearby communities and develop society, CP has initiated the “Bon Tub Tuk Anamai Dambei Paounpaoun” – toilets for children – project to provide education on how hygiene can improve health and quality of life.

The project not only builds toilets, but also provides essential educational resources and equipment, such as by constructing libraries as well as providing scholarships, computers, books and other study materials for enhanced learning.

In addition, CP also participates in humanitarian blood donations.

Balance of Nature

Understanding that agriculture is an activity that impacts the environment, such CP business areas, including farming, plant trees to reduce the impact of pollution and waste.

Committed to planting one million trees by 2030, CP aims to create value by reducing air pollution and improving soil quality, as well as with sustainable water treatment and waste management, and by using renewable energy.

Kittiphop said the ‘CPF 2030 Sustainability in Action’ strategy outlines CP’s dedication to responsible business practices.

“Under the ‘CPF 2030 Sustainability in Action’ strategy, the company is committed to creating value for society and restoring balance to natural resources – the soil, water and forests – which are fundamental to food production.

“The strategy is driven by CPF’s Philosophy of Sufficient Economy and the Three-Benefits principle, and based on Sustainability Governance, which include, but are not limited to, supporting UN Sustainable Development Goals and the 10 principles of the UN Global Compact,” he said.

As a subsidiary of CPF – the Thai multinational agro-industrial and food conglomerate which operates with the vision of being the “Kitchen of the World” – CP Cambodia aims to operate responsibly.

And with concern for society and the environment, the company will at all stages of its future business journey remain focused on sustainability.
