Some of our initiatives to #BeatAirPollution
100% Green Electric Energy
In our German plant we are only consuming electric power generated by wind, water, or sun, saving us 350 tons of CO2 emissions per year.
"Zero Waste to Landfill" Certification
Certified for three years in a row, our UK plant consistently strives to improve its environmental impact.
75% of Old HVAC Equipment Replaced
The new heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment in our Fresno, California plant is now highly energy efficient.
Power Consumption Reduced by 8%
In addition to relying on natural gas for heating, our Spanish plant has also replaced older lighting with newer, more energy efficient options.
100,000 Fewer Polythene Bags Per Year
We have stopped using 15 bags on various products in our UK plant, which means 100,000 fewer bags per year!
Aerosol Use Reduced to Zero
In several of our plants around the world, aerosols are not used anymore. Alternatively, we are using waterborne paint.
