Delta has been listed in the leadership level under “climate change” and “water security” issues among nearly 12,000 companies worldwide in the CDP Climate Change 2021 report.
The CDP assessment recognizes that Delta’s business strategy is aligned with low carbon goals.
Not only does Delta’s Board of Directors actively participate in its sustainability strategy, but the management team also leads the ESG Committee in promoting various climate initiatives and implementing them in the core business and daily operations.
The team received top ratings for “climate change governance,” “business strategy and financial planning,” and “emission reduction initiatives.” In water security, Delta achieved a five-year water intensity reduction of 30% in 2020 and committed to a further 10% reduction in water intensity by 2025 compared to 2020.
Delta has also assessed the water risk of its main plants and supply chains using the international water risk assessment tool and provided improved resources for high-risk areas or deployed production capacity to reduce its impact on water resources. The Company has been awarded the highest honor from CDP with an A-List leadership rating for its contributions to water security issues.
Jesse Chou, Delta’s Chief Sustainability Officer, said Delta has long been concerned with climate change and aligns with international sustainability initiatives.
After passing the Science-based Targets (SBT) in 2017, Delta has far surpassed its annual goals for three consecutive years through self-directed energy reduction, self-generation of solar energy, and the purchase of green power or international renewable energy certificates.
Delta also attaches great importance to water security management and continues to improve water efficiency and wastewater treatment efficiency in its operations. Delta strengthens the resilience of regional water resources and reduces the impact of water pollution while assisting high-risk suppliers in making improvements.
All plants and facilities within its management area are equipped with electronic water meters combined with the Delta Energy Online system and the DIAEnergie industrial energy management system. This allows Delta to continuously optimize equipment operation efficiency using systematic data analysis, improve production processes, and develop water management strategies to enhance water use efficiency.
