Sustainability through investment
A McCain Foods case study

Page 6: Conclusion

A business needs to ensure that it will get a good return on investments. Ensuring profitability is the basic goal of every business.

However, rather than simply switching energy providers to cut costs, McCain looked for a more sustainable solution.

McCain invested in the wind turbines and lagoon to save energy costs. By calculating the set-up and maintenance costs against its current (and estimated future) gas and electricity costs, the company forecast that these projects would deliver savings in the longer term. These projects also support its corporate responsibility programme.
