A key priority for Thai Union is building a safe workplace for our staff and contractors. With this we have already exceeded our target of 0. In we also maintained a zero occupational illness frequency rate for employees, with no employee fatalities. To achieve this, we analyzed accidents and their causes and ranked them on a monthly basis. According to analysis, the top three reductions in accidents compared to were as follows:.
The results show that the top three lost time accident cases were reduced in total by 38 percent from These are the key factors that lead to the total lost time frequency rate being reduced from 0. We also improved communication between management and employees to identify and conduct action plans for accident prevention. This has increased the effectiveness of our accident reduction.
The plant was not in operation at the time of the fire and there were no staff onsite, so there were no injuries reported. Damage was quickly assessed and clean-up and salvage operations were launched a short time after the incident.
Construction of the new plant is underway and is expected to be completed in Q4 Tragically, Thai Union had one fatality of a contractor in , which was as result of construction in our shrimp farm.
We have conducted the root cause investigation to learn as much as possible and to implement measures to prevent reoccurrences. Lesson from the accident showed a gap in our contractor management as well as risk analysis practices in our farm operation. We strive to provide safe working conditions for all our workforces and recognize that to achieve our ultimate goal of zero accidents, our daily actions — whether at processing factories, at shrimp farms or in offices — require diligent planning and management.
Climate change is a global challenge involving economic, social and environmental issues. Oceans are also directly linked with climate change, whether through warming sea surface temperatures, rising sea levels, or ocean acidification. It is our social and environmental responsibility to take action to minimize the factors which cause climate change. Thai Union is committed to protecting the environment by mitigating risks from our natural resources consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, especially within our organization.
We are also committed to our proactive environmental sustainability targets for enhancing our environmental accounting, monitoring and mitigation plans. Thai Union is committed to protecting the environment by minimizing our consumption of natural resources, reducing any adverse impact on the environment.
In , we exceeded our targets for water consumption reduction and waste to landfill reduction. We have reduced our water and waste to landfill by 22 and 67 percent respectively, compared with We are making progress towards our greenhouse gas intensity reduction target. In , we reduced our greenhouse gas intensity emissions by 18 percent, or about 87, tons CO 2 equivalent. The total environmental reduction programs have realized a cost saving for Thai Union of more than USD 24 million since In , Thai Union initiated a lot of water reduction programs more than 20 projects , especially reusing and recycling water in production processes.
As a result, Thai Union was able to reduce water consumption more than 1. Moreover, Thai Union supports factories to use alternative water sources to reduce the impact from water shortages and conflict that may arise from water usage within the community. As a result, Thai Union was able to reduce waste-to-landfill by more than 26, ton, or 67 percent, against The objective and benefit of this project is to establish a baseline GHG for the food industry sector, mock up an initial GHG reduction target and recommend opportunities to reduce GHG in the food industry sector.
Renewable Energy: Our Sun Seeker Project to install solar rooftops in our factories continued in Since , we have achieved total solar capacity of 6.
This has resulted in greenhouse gas reduction of approximately 2, tons CO 2 , equivalent to planting , trees. For more information about EHS Guideline, please click here. According to analysis, the top three reductions in accidents compared to were as follows: Contact with moving machinery reduced by 56 percent Contact with sharp objects reduced by 30 percent Contact with manual handling pushing reduced by 33 percent The results show that the top three lost time accident cases were reduced in total by 38 percent from Big Bag Project to reduce coal moisture can result in reducing coal consumption.
Reducing electrical usage in refrigeration system by improving energy management in cold storage and installing inverter compressor fans.
Replacing hot water system from an electrical heating system to LPG heating system. Implementing heat recovery to dry fish in smoking cells. Example of water reduction project, Reuse and recycle water from rejected RO. Installation of ozone treatment system on evaporative condenser unit. Reducing pressure on water supply. Reusing wastewater after treated for planting trees, cleaning floors, flushing toilets etc.

A s with production and use of any fuels, aspects of biofuel production and use have benefits and adverse effects. This chapter discusses potential environmental effects from the production and use of algal biofuels, the potential influence of perceived or actual impacts on societal acceptance, and some of the health impacts potentially emanating from the specific environmental effects. Potential environmental effects discussed in this chapter include those resulting from land-use changes, water quality, net greenhousegas GHG emissions, air quality, biodiversity, waste generation, and effects from genetically engineered algae with an emphasis on new or enhanced traits. Where possible, this chapter discusses the potential for algal biofuels to improve aspects of sustainability compared to petroleum-based fuels and other biofuels and the potential for mitigating negative effects along the life cycle of algal biofuel.
Don't have an account? All forms of energy have their negative impacts on sustainable development values—including impacts on the environment and human health, as well as those affecting human rights, empowerment of women, energy security, and the economy. The key is always to analyse each energy source for its full life-cycle impacts. Fossil fuels have unacceptably more clear, more numerous, more severe, and more permanent risks for our world than most of the alternatives. It is an environmental and survival necessity.
But although we can identify and describe individual environmental health hazards, the relationship between human health and the environment is highly complex.
The Impact of Energy on Health, Environment, and Sustainable Development: The TANSTAAFL Problem
Sustainable development is the organizing principle for meeting human development goals while simultaneously sustaining the ability of natural systems to provide the natural resources and ecosystem services on which the economy and society depend. The desired result is a state of society where living conditions and resources are used to continue to meet human needs without undermining the integrity and stability of the natural system. Sustainable development can be defined as development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Sustainability goals, such as the current UN-level Sustainable Development Goals , address the global challenges, including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice.

Сьюзан нахмурилась. Она понимала, что найти принадлежащую Хейлу копию ключа будет очень трудно. Найти ее на одном из жестких дисков - все равно что отыскать носок в спальне размером со штат Техас. Компьютерные поисковые системы работают, только если вы знаете, что ищете; этот пароль - некая неопределенность. К счастью, поскольку сотрудникам шифровалки приходилось иметь дело с огромным количеством достаточно неопределенных материалов, они разработали сложную процедуру так называемого неортодоксального поиска. Такой поиск, по существу, представляет собой команду компьютеру просмотреть все строки знаков на жестком диске, сравнить их с данными громадного по объему словаря и пометить те из них, которые кажутся бессмысленными или произвольными. Это сложнейшая работа, заключающаяся в постоянном отсеивании лишнего, но она вполне выполнима.
Нахмурившись, Беккер набрал второй номер. И на другом конце сразу же сняли трубку. - Buenas noches, Mujeres Espana. Чем могу служить. Беккер держался той же версии: он - немецкий турист, готовый заплатить хорошие деньги за рыжеволосую, которую сегодня нанял его брат.
Танкадо прошел проверку на полиграф-машине и пережил пять недель интенсивного психологического тестирования. И с успехом его выдержал. Ненависть в его сердце уступила место преданности Будде. Еще через четыре месяца Энсей Танкадо приступил к работе в Отделении криптографии Агентства национальной безопасности США. Несмотря на солидный заработок, Танкадо ездил на службу на стареньком мопеде и обедал в одиночестве за своим рабочим столом, вместо того чтобы вместе с сослуживцами поглощать котлеты из телятины и луковый суп с картофелем - фирменные блюда местной столовой.
Да я бы ничего и не взял у умирающего.
Господи Иисусе, - простонал Стратмор. - Ну прямо цирк. - Он провел рукой по подбородку, на котором темнела полуторасуточная щетина. - А что Следопыт.
