Vinamilk announces 3rd carbon neutral facility

Vietnamese dairy company Vinamilk has announced that its Vietnam Beverage Factory has attained international certification for carbon neutrality from the British Standards Institute (BSI). The company now has three units that have received carbon neutrality.

The factory in Vietnam produces over 282 million items annually. The factory’s certification confirms the neutralisation of 3410 t of carbon dioxide emissions, achieved through emission reductions in production and investments in forest funds to absorb greenhouse gases. Through the adoption of green energy and advanced technologies, the factory sources over 92% of its energy consumption from clean, renewable sources, resulting in a 30% reduction in emissions.

The company is establishing large-scale carbon sequestration initiatives, including expanding green tree funds at farms and factories, preserving over 1000 hectares of forest in Laos and promoting tree planting through the Vinamilk Net Zero Forest project. This includes a joint effort with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment to reforest 25 hectares of mangrove in Ca Mau Province.

Le Hoang Minh, Production Executive Director and Head of the Net Zero Project at Vinamilk, said: “We are actively integrating eco-friendly technologies, transitioning to green energy and adopting circular economy principles to develop factory models that are not only modern and of international quality, but also increasingly sustainable. With the unwavering determination of our board of directors and the positive commitment of our employees, Vinamilk is committed to further reducing the carbon footprint of each product for consumers.”
