I. General statement
“Since 2020, Ajinomoto Vietnam pioneers a novel AJI-NO-MOTO® umami seasoning manufacture technology, which is acclaimed as one of the world’s most advanced and eco-friendly fermentation technologies. We aim for further sustainable growth for the Company while delivering more values to the society.”
II. ASV Value Creation Story
Ajinomoto Vietnam engages in the novel AJI-NO-MOTO® umami seasoning manufacture technology as an ASV initiative to contribute to the resolution of social issues through our business, thus leading to the creation of economic value.
1. Social Value Creation: “Reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the value chain”
a) Social issue:
Greenhouse gases like CO2, HFCs, etc. are those which accelerate the greenhouse effect and cause global warming. People in Vietnam are being challenged by rapidly increased greenhouse gas emissions especially from production and transportation.
b) Resolution by Ajinomoto Vietnam through our business:
Through this novel technology, Ajinomoto Vietnam can reduce our environmental impact with the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions throughout the responsible AJI-NO-MOTO® value chain, from procurement, production to transportation.
1.1. As for procurement:
We procure less input raw materials, thus can reduce the amount of CO2 emission from factories producing these input materials.
1.2. As for production:
As for our chiller system, we are replacing HFC (hydrofluorocarbon) by alternative refrigerant with ultra-low GWP (global warming potential).
1.3. As for transportation:
We consume less input materials, thus can reduce the amount of CO2 emission from the transportation of these materials from their manufacturing factories to Ajinomoto Vietnam factories.
2. Economic Value Creation: “Increase Company’s competitiveness”
We can produce AJI-NO-MOTO® with more efficient manner and increase Company’s competitiveness as this novel technology enables:
2.1. We consume less input materials.
2.2. We have higher yield of product.
2.3. The production operation is simplified with less processes.
