Fighting Climate Change
Fighting climate change is integral to the JG Pears operation. We recognise that care for the environment is a fundamental and integral part of our business, so we work hard to minimise the effect of our operations on the local and global environment.
We are committed to protecting the Environment and reflecting the goals of sustainable development.
Generating Renewable Energy
Our Combined Heat and Power Plant at Newark is a facility that is rare in the field of biomass power. It is fired on meat and bone meal (MBM), instead of the more common wood or straw derived fuel.
We continually improve by maximising the renewable electricity output whilst at the same time providing all the energy demands to the rendering plant.
This activity can be expanded, improving the sustainability of the Group's other sites. Our goal is to harness the output from the power plant and use the latest technologies to provide both renewable energy and high-quality animal feed. This is the cornerstone of our Group's direction. The installation of our CHP has had multiple benefits, both to the business and external stakeholders, and we are committed to changing the perception of our industry.
