30 : 40 : 50
Going green is a process, not a one-time project. Apart from the considerable green agenda currently being implemented at both the plantation and production facility, Management has ambitious plans to go even greener over the next 5 to 10 years.
Past of the plan involves decreasing fossil fuel usage by 30% and replacing it with renewable energy; decreasing the use of inorganic fertilizer by 40%, and increasing yield and quality by 50%. This plan gave rise to GGP’s ‘magic formula’: the 30:40:50 ratio. A methane-powered generator, routing gas from cattle manure and factory waste water into a bio-digester. The liquid waste generated will be converted into bio-fertilizer, and the solid waste into orgaic fertilizer.
Some of the significant green measures implemented over the years include the installation of a 4-stage Electro Static Precipitator (ESP). GGP is the only company in Indonesia using specs exceeding international industry standards, as the clean air from our smoke-free chimney testifies.
We have collaborated with some of our partners to do away with the unnecessary plastic cling-wrapping of cartons, and on reducing the amount of packaging materials used, including re-designing cartons which are 3/4th the size of conventional ones. We strongly encourage all our partners to consider co-implementing such measures with us.
