Some of our key actions include:

  • The remainder of our electricity comes from renewable Energy with expected annual consumption of approximately 900,000kWh, and a grid CO2 intensity of approx. 400g/kWh, the CO2 reduction should be around 360,000kg / year .
  • We operate a Mawera Biomass Burner to process all waste from the factory, which heats our workplace and assists with the operation of machinery.
  • We have a heat recovery system to harness waste heat in the manufacturing process.
