Precision Polymer Engineering announces that it has switched to a new 100% renewable energy contract for its UK operations.
The company has signed a contract with a renewable energy supplier, which will provide it with electricity generated from low-carbon sources such as wind, tidal, and solar power.
PPE’s decision to switch to a renewable energy contract is part of its commitment to reduce its environmental impact and support the UK’s transition to net zero emissions by 2050. PPE has calculated that the switch to a 100% renewable energy tariff could help its Blackburn facility save over 2,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions a year – which is the equivalent of taking over 500 cars off the road!
PPE’s General Manager, Hynek Jakubicek, said: “We are delighted to announce that we have switched to a 100% renewable energy contract for our UK operations. This is a significant step in our journey to becoming a more sustainable and responsible business. We are always looking for ways to improve our performance and efficiency, and this contract will enable us to do so while making significant reductions to our carbon footprint.”
PPE operates manufacturing facilities in the UK, US, and Saudi Arabia, providing high performance sealing solutions to a diverse range of industries – including chemical processing, food and beverage production, energy, pharmaceutical, and semiconductor manufacturing.
