CP Green to decrease Claypaky’s carbon footprint

Claypaky has launched CP Green, a Spotlight on Sustainability initiative, stating that “eco-friendliness is not enough”. The objective of this initiative is to reduce Claypaky’s carbon footprint and increase energy-efficiency.

Claypaky has already implemented several projects to reduce the environmental impact of its business activities. Its existing efforts include the implementation of the Kanban control system into its manufacturing process to increase the efficiency of the operation and reduce waste, optimisation of the compressed air production and testing procedures leading to the reduction of the total electrical consumption and CO2, elimination of all solvent-based coloured ink on product packaging and paperless operation in the production process and paperless fairs.

To coordinate all the corporate initiatives, integrate them across the whole organisation and secure the execution of the changes, a Sustainability team, led by Claypaky Executive Andreas Huber has been formed. “My mission is orchestrating the sustainability and environment activities and foster lasting connections across the company inspiring and engaging colleagues across the Claypaky organisation in their work to support the sustainability and environment activities,” said Huber. “I will listen to ideas from any colleague on how we can improve further.”

“Sustainability became a high priority in Claypaky as we aim pioneering sustainable entertainment products and operations for a safe and better world – driving sustainability is a crucial part of fulfilling our company ambitions and goals,” said Marcus Graser, Claypaky CEO.

“Working towards a climate neutral future is fundamental to pursue a sustainable development. Claypaky understood the urgency to act now and believes the best way to achieve this is by adopting a scientific approach to tackle climate change impacts of its activities so as to ensure real results are delivered. Spinlife is proud to contribute to this process and to independently support the company in achieving this ambitious goal, “ added Prof. Alessandro Manzardo from Spinlife, a spinoff of the University of Padova contributing to and supporting the initiative.

Because aircraft emissions are released high in the atmosphere, they have a significant impact on global climate change. To reduce the environmental impact and partially offset the emissions produced by the business travels, Claypaky has recently purchased 5.879 carbon credits supporting the Asahan 1 Hydroelectric Power Plant 2 x 90 MW – this is a run of-river hydroelectric power project in North Sumatera Province developed by Bajradaya Sentranusa.

The project is taking advantage of Asahan River that receives water from its natural source, Lake Toba. The objective of this project is to supply zero emission energy to Sumatera Grid, a grid with relatively carbon-intensive electricity supply that is located in Sumatera island and currently has no interconnection with the grid in other islands.

Claypaky is to work on new cartoon packaging to eliminate the usage of the polystyrene. Its production hall is to be equipped with modern energy efficient lighting as well as new laser cutting machines, leading to further reductions of electrical consumption and CO2 emissions on site.
