CONSOLIDATION OF OUR ENVIRONMENTAL PROJECT IN 2022, NEW CHALLENGES FOR 2023
As part of our resource optimization policy and with the aim of minimizing the environmental impact of our productive activity, in 2021 we reduced our oil consumption for component manufacturing by 8%. In addition, in 2022, we achieved a 33% reduction in plastic bags and 21% in cardboard boxes, used in our product packaging.
In 2021 we began the gradual elimination of internal combustion machinery, consolidated in 2022 with the acquisition of new electric forklifts. In 2023 we have reached a major milestone in our electrification objective with the installation of solar panels that will enable to guarantee that a large part of the electricity consumed in our production processes, comes from clean sources.
Oja-Rem is committed to the generation of renewable energy with a photovoltaic self-consumption installation of 310.80 kWp.
This new platform will enable us to achieve energy savings, improve competitiveness, increase energy self-sufficiency and contribute to the environment by producing sustainable energy.
This self-consumption PV project has been co-financed through the “self-consumption and storage with renewable energy sources” and the “implementation of renewable thermal systems in the residential sector” incentive programs, within the “Recovery and Resilience Facility”, NextGenerationEU, European Union funds.
