Supplier cuts energy consumption by switching to solar

To reduce its carbon footprint, Jet Technologies is switching to renewable energy at its Sydney headquarters. Following the installation of the industrial-scale solar project, the company has reduced its energy consumption by half. In addition to its switch to solar power, the company has appointed three of its members to join Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO) working groups, including the 2020 National Packaging Targets Implementation Working Group, the 2020 APCO Design Working Group and the 2020 APCO Material Circularity Working Group.

The working groups allow organisations to take on leadership roles by collaborating with industry and government procedures, to develop new initiatives for eco-friendly approaches to product manufacturing. The working groups focus on compostable and re-usable packaging, and material flow analysis, which is an analytical method to quantify flows and stocks of materials of substances in a well-defined system.

“This will be a fantastic opportunity for some of our team to collaborate on making some big industry changes for the better. In 2020, the Jet Technologies team will work to bring innovative ideas back to the company as we strive to implement initiatives to ensure sustainability within our company and the wider industry,” said Jack Malki, Director of Jet Technologies.
