Committed to environmental sustainability, Ajinomoto Philippines Corp. (APC) continues to progress towards completing its 2030 Roadmap. The new partnership with ACEN Renewable Energy Solutions (an Ayala Group subsidiary) marks a shared milestone for APC and the Ajinomoto Group, with Ajinomoto Philippines Flavor Food Inc. or APF Bulacan Factory running on 100% renewable energy since December of 2023.

To celebrate this success, a commemorative MOA signing was held last March 1, 2024, at The Melting Pot, 35th Floor, ACEN, Ayala Triangle Gardens Tower 2 Paseo de Roxas cor., Makati Avenue, Makati City.

The MOA signing was attended by APC President Mr. Koichi Ozaki, APC Vice President Mr. Makoto Tanabe, APF Bulacan Factory Director Mr. Juanito Ramos, and APC Chief Sustainability Officer Mr. Ernie Carlos. Joining the momentous ceremony from ACEN Corporation were its Chief Operating Officer Mr. Miguel de Jesus, Senior Vice President for Market Transformation, Mr. Tony Valdez, and Assistant Vice President for Commercial Operations Ms. Sheila Mina.

100% Renewable Energy

The journey for the APF Bulacan factory to run on 100% renewable energy began in 2022, with the installation of a 1MW-peak capacity Solar Rooftop in the manufacturing facility, reducing approximately 18% of its annual carbon footprint from electricity consumption. In mid 2023, APC continued to seek more avenues to reduce its environmental footprint with ACEN RES coming into the picture, known for being one of the premier suppliers of Renewable energy in the country. Now, with this new partnership, APF Bulacan has been using only renewable energy to power its operations, a major feat for APC and the Ajinomoto Group.

“We will relentlessly foster partnerships with organizations that share the same advocacy and goal, because we believe that by combining our efforts, we are closer to co-creating a greener and more sustainable Philippine society.” Says APC President Mr. Koichi Ozaki.

As of today, the path to completing the APC 2030 Roadmap provides a positive outlook leading up to the target year. The use of 100% renewable energy in its Bulacan facility is one of APC’s many efforts in environmental sustainability, and it suggests the possibility of achieving even more in terms of environment-centric works and initiatives.
