Shrinking Our Carbon Footprint from Coal to Wind

Asia, East Asia, China, Health

Nolato focuses on sustainability by shrinking its carbon footprint in China by switching from coal to wind-generated power. Nolato is cutting its global carbon emissions by purchasing renewable electricity in China, taking an essential step towards the target of reducing its carbon footprint by 80% by 2025.

We’ve been endeavoring for some time to use energy as efficiently as possible, to cut waste and minimize water consumption. All of this helps reduce our carbon footprint, but until now, we’ve depended on purchasing electricity mainly generated by coal-fired power stations,” says Thomas Hofflander, Managing Director of Nolato Beijing.

Nolato has introduced several sustainability initiatives at its production plants in China over the years. Reducing the impact on the climate is a vital societal issue, and Nolato is now implementing robust measures to cut its carbon footprint in China.

Nolato has considerable production in China, with many large production facilities and over 3,500 employees. Switching to buying electricity generated from wind power instead of coal will cut carbon emissions in China by around 75% and reduce the Group’s overall carbon footprint by more than 30%.

Cope Allman Jaycare develops process for printing Braille directly onto plastic containers

Cope Allman Jaycare has developed a process that allows a lay down of up to a 0.5mm thickness of UV cured ink directly onto the surface of a plastic container. In-house screen printing facilities were adapted to maintain an even and consistent print height. Although originally developed for printing Braille onto containers, the process also can be used in traditional screen printing, allowing clients the opportunity to highlight particular parts of their artwork (i.e. logos, etc.) by raising the print from the surface of the container.
