What does Pont to reduce its CO footprint?
Indeed a good question, what do we do to reduce our Carbon footprint?
In the last Grip on Green Pont’s beehive was introduced to underline our support to the environment. As addition to this, we just want to summarize, what else we are currently doing in regards to this. We as Pont are of course trying to keep the Carbon footprint of our actions as low as possible and do our best to save resources.
Some examples of what we are doing so far:
Most of our offices are regulated automatically for light and water
Usually, the heating & cooling can be regulated partly, so we avoid wasting energy
Where aren’t already LED lights, we will replace the broken lights by energy saving LEDs
Replacing single-use plastics by long-lasting or refill alternatives in our daily behavior
We avoid printing to use less paper, as well as for promotional material like brochures, flyers and give the priority to digital communication
Installed professional video conference equipment in each office in Europe to minimize business trips where possible
We do our best to plan and do production in the most efficient way to save time, energy and costs
We try to use less material to produce the same high-value products
We avoid any leakage or pollution by production plants and reducing waste through process optimization
Together with partners, we are reusing carton boxes for shipments
Our plastic packaging are light-weight products, so the amounts are high, while the transportation effort is low. We do our best to transport our goods in the most efficient way. Which means keep ways short, only transporting full loads, working with local logistic companies, etc.
