Lee Kum Kee invests in the latest technologies and renewable energy sources to minimise impact on the environment.
Our production bases in Hong Kong, Huangpu and Xinhui, China have implemented the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System.
Lee Kum Kee is the first company in the fermented food industry globally to have received “Platinum Certification in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)”.
Lee Kum Kee is the first food enterprise in Jiangmen, Guangdong accredited as a “National Green Factory”.
The system was installed on the rooftops of four warehouses in the Xinhui Proudction Base with approximately 47,000m2. The semi-conductor boards convert solar energy into electricity for powering the plant.
The second phase of the system was installed on the rooftop of a newly built soy sauce plant with an area of around 3,000m2.
* Surplus electricity generated by the Solar Photovoltaic Power Generation System will be diverted to the public power grid for residents nearby
We have replaced all biomass boilers with natural gas boilers to reduce air pollutant emissions.
We are the first enterprise in the world to adopt geothermal energy in soy sauce production.
With the consistent temperature deep underground, hot and cold water can be provided for soy sauce fermentation processes via the heat exchangers and condensers, thus reducing greenhouse gas emissions, electricity usage and water consumption.
A wetland covering 16,000m2 in gross area is under construction.
With specific plants that can remove nitrogen compounds from treated water, the wetland is estimated to be capable of treating 4,000m3 of treated water on a daily basis.
Our Xinhui Production Base is well equipped with wastewater treatment facilities, a grey water recycling system and highly efficient water-saving facilities to maximise water conservation.
