Australian supplier for the food packaging, industrial manufacturing, and print and finishing industries, Jet Technologies, has made the switch to renewable energy at its Sydney headquarters.
The company said the move was made in an effort to reduce its carbon footprint,
Since the installation of the industrial-scale solar project, Jet Technologies said it has cut its energy consumption in half, in “one of many new initiatives to come” from the family owned Australian company.
In addition to the switch to solar power, three members of Jet Technologies have been appointed to join APCO (Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation) 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.
Jet Technologies director Jack Malki, has been appointed to join the annual APCO working group, along with his colleagues Jason Terry and Carl D’Costa.
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.
They focus on things like compostable packaging, reusable packaging, and material flow analysis; an analytical method to quantify flows and stocks of materials or 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,” Malki said.
“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.”
