Selecting Focus Areas of Sustainability Management

Promote a Safe and Healthy
Dietary Culture

HOW WE MANAGE

CJ CheilJedang’s food business, one of its major business divisions, pursues sustainable growth and fulfills its social responsibility by constantly exploring product safety, considering health of consumers and making efforts for them. This chapter describes the company’s infrastructure and system for improving the quality and safety of food products, and introduces the development, release and outcome of products made by considering the health of consumers.
Food safety issues can be detected throughout the whole value chain, from plant design to R&D, supply chain, production and distribution. If relevant issues are not properly managed, it may lead to penalties and other financial damages to the company and also have an adverse impact on its reputation. But the disclosure of food safety information can be a way of managing food safety risks and providing information on potential impact for investors. It will also help build a reliable image of the company for product safety. In addition, we disclose the information of products manufactured by considering the health of consumers, thereby showing the result of our efforts to fulfill our social responsibility as a food company.

Drive Responsible Production for
Sustainable Life and Environment

HOW WE MANAGE

A great deal of energy is required from manufacturing to distribution of products. Given the characteristics of the food industry, an immense amount of water is used for cooking, processing and cleaning finished products, while large quantities of raw materials are utilized to produce packaging materials. Energy production and consumption have an impact on the environment including climate change, and the discharge of wastewater causes additional risks, directly and indirectly affecting the management of a company.
CJ CheilJedang endeavors to minimize its environmental impact by analyzing environmental risks of its domestic business sites, including its headquarters, under the leadership of the department in charge, while carrying out activities to manage environmental data and reduce emissions. In particular, the Energy Committee takes charge of managing energy efficiency, improving the processes to increase the efficiency of energy and expanding the introduction of renewable energy. Moreover, we strictly manage waste and wastewater to discharge them according to legal procedures, and exert efforts to reduce waste intensity.
As a global company, CJ CheilJedang, recognizes that strict management of environmental impact should not be limited to its domestic business sites. We will expand the environmental management framework and infrastructure horizontally to overseas business sites. We are planning to provide more information on relevant performance in the sustainability report.

Create an Industrial Ecosystem for
Inclusive Growth

HOW WE MANAGE

Given the characteristics of CJ CheilJedang’s business, the company procures an immense amount of raw materials. If any problems occur in the supply and demand of raw materials, it may cause price fluctuations and affect the profitability of a company. Responsible sourcing of raw materials and fair trade may lead to an opportunity for a company to harness the growing demand of consumers who are interested in social responsibility. Moreover, the management of social and environmental risks in the supply chain may affect the reputation of the company, which is eventually linked to enhanced values of the company for shareholders.
CJ CheilJedang always makes efforts to alleviate social and environmental risks in its supply chain, while coming up with measures to grow together with SME suppliers and farms. Fair trade is our basic principle, and sustainability is strictly controlled throughout our supply chain. As part of our efforts to fulfill our social responsibility, we strive to create shared values by providing financial and non-financial support to SME suppliers and farms. In particular, we established CJ Breeding Corp. to address farming issues and increase the income of farms. CJ Breeding Corp., a subsidiary of CJ CheilJedang, is managed as KPI of the CEO along with ‘Happy Companion’, our leading brand for mutual growth. We also share the mindset for creating an industrial ecosystem for shared growth throughout the company.

Fulfil a Harmonious
Local Community

HOW WE MANAGE

For fulfilling corporate social responsibility, a company should contribute to the local community, which must be accompanied by the participation of the local community. Social responsibility should be performed not by simple donations, but by support for those who need help in society with the participation of members of the company. And shared values should be created through activities using the characteristic of business.
CJ CheilJedang hopes to actualize a harmonious society by supporting in the fields where it can excel and where social concerns are needed. Following this direction, we conduct a wide range of social contribution activities, promoting a healthy dietary culture of the people, protecting the environment and ecosystem of the local community, and assisting teenagers to realize their dreams. We also run the Social Contribution Committee to make quick and accurate decisions regarding issues in all fields of social contribution.
