Environmental activities

The facility uses an Environmental Management System (EMS) certified to the internationally recognized ISO 14001 standard to closely monitor its environmental footprint. In 2011, Patrick Cudahy:

  • achieved a 19% decrease in electricity use from the previous year;
  • decreased landfilled waste by 27%; and

To continually improve performance, Smithfield Packaged Meats Corp plans to install additional LED lights to conserve electricity and to evaluate the feasibility of taking remaining landfill wastes and converting them into alternative fuels to be used by other companies for energy.
