Jollibee Group Gears Up for Its Largest Solar Panel Installation

Jollibee Group is still on track when it comes to shifting to renewable energy with its recent installation of 6,300 solar panels in its Canlubang Baking Facility. This is part of Jollibee Group's commitment to more sustainable business practices guided by its global sustainability agenda- Joy for Tomorrow

JG thru its subsidiary Zenith Foods Corporation, has collaborated with First Gen Corporation, through Pi Energy Inc., to energize 1/3 of the Jollibee Group's manufacturing with solar-powered electricity. Officials of both the Jollibee Group and First Gen Corporation led the switch-on rites together with Calamba City Mayor Roseller Rizal last January 9, 2024 in Canlubang, Laguna. 

During the ceremony, JG Supply Chain Head Michael Ong underscored the company's drive to lessen the environmental impact of its supply chain operations. "In our quest to bring the joy of eating not only for today's generation but that of tomorrow's, we integrate solar energy into our state-of-the-art Canlubang Baking Facility. This is our largest installation to date, but this is also just the beginning. We have more locations planned in the months ahead, and we are determined to accelerate further our journey towards carbon neutrality." 

"Your initiative to promote sustainability in your facilities will not only have one positive results for your company, but it will also be in solidarity with the government's call for a more orderly operation of companies that considers many factors, including those that concern our environment," said Calamba City Mayor Ross Rizal. 

Ong and his team at ZFC started accelerating the integration of sustainable business practices into the Jollibee Group's commissaries and logistics centers in 2020. The Canlubang Baking Facility is now the second out of the four target sites for solar panel installation. The first one was Zen3, also in Canlubang, which was installed with 3,000 solar panels last November 2023. The solar panel installation in the two other sites is expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2024. 

These commissaries and logistics centers support the Jollibee Group's portfolio of brands in the Philippines, such as Jollibee, Greenwich, Burger King, Red Ribbon, Chowking, and Mang Inasal. 

First Gen constructed four rooftop solar power plants for ZFCs commissaries, cold storage, and logistics facilities. 

"We are thankful to Jollibee Group's ZFC for their trust in our company to be their reliable energy partner in our shared vision of a cleaner and greener future for this generation and the next," said Carlo Vega, First Gen's VP for Power Marketing, Trading, and Economics. 

"We learned that our impact on the planet revolves around three critical areas; energy, water, and waste. With this newfound awareness, we embrace the challenge of 'Joy for Tomorrow,' and we set out to establish strategies, systems, and initiatives that will allow us to treat our planet responsibly," said Jose Minana Jr., JG Chief Sustainability and Public Affairs Officer.
