ESG Initiatives: Climate Smart = Business Smart

At WayCool, ESG is not just an afterthought but embedded in all our processes

Our ESG initiatives are governed by three mandates. First, all ESG projects that we undertake are focussed on delivering tangible on-ground impact, and not mere ESG reporting. Second, all ESG projects are clearly ROI-driven while measuring the on-ground impact. And third, we stay ahead of what regulations demand and continue to push ahead relentlessly in adopting what the latest technologies offer us in terms of footprint and impact reduction. We firmly believe that doing good has to be good for business
Net Zero Carbon Emissions

By deploying impactful decarbonising strategies, WayCool ensures a minimum footprint on our environment through large-scale carbon avoidance and carbon restoration projects across the value chain of the company

Net Water Positive

We aim to become water positive across our operations by undertaking initiatives that allow the company to give back more water than originally consumed

Net Zero Liquid Waste Discharge

We envisage ensuring 100% of the water treated and reused within our facility meets our domestic needs or goes into groundwater recharge. The objective is to cease dumping of used water into the ground or water channels that may add to existing pollutants

Right from food development and sourcing, supply chain, operations, and distribution, we aim to deliver value to our farmers, employees, supply chain partners and the environment. Our business contributes to 11 of the 17 UNSDG’s.

Climate Resilient Supply Chain

Focused on food development and distribution, we leverage innovative technologies to scale and operate a complex supply chain from soil-to-sale. The technology brings complete, real-time visibility and control across the supply chain, be it in demand planning, managing inventory, sales force automation, and distribution

With the use of advanced tools like AI and ML, we have not only created avenues of economic value to the farmers, retailers, and consumers, but built an efficient supply chain demonstrating resilience to climate change impact, and helped achieve regional food security food security
