Styropack has already achieved an energy consumption level that beats the 2020 targets set by the Environment Agency under an industry-wide Climate Change Agreement.
Companies who sign the Climate Change Agreement must reduce energy consumption by at least 17% compared to 2008 levels by the end of 2020 (2008 is the ‘base’ year against which all performance is measured).
In 2013 Styropack achieved a consumption level that was 36% lower than its consumption in 2008.
Styropack has undertaken a number of measures to achieve this reduction in energy use, Adam explains: “We have invested in tool cleaning and refurbishment, in new lagging for pipe work and boilers, repaired steam valves and carried out heat loss and repair surveys.”
In addition to meeting the requirements of the Climate Change Agreement Styropack is working on, and seeing performance improvements in product delivery and waste disposal; all as part of an ongoing commitment to improve sustainability standards in all its processes.
