Our Clean Energy Commitment
Energy Reduction Target
Biodegradable Product Ranges: PowerPak is committed to exploring new opportunities and technologies to bring state-of-the-art Biodegradable products to an industry that is very reliant on plastic products.
Implement Yearly Energy Usage Reporting: PowerPak will implement a yearly energy report, reviewed by the full PowerPak team, to shed light on the largest points of improvement. We will also partner with Energy Efficiency consultants to leverage areas of improvement in the Electrical system (Lighting, plug loads, motor efficiency) Heating, Ventilating, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration (HVAC&R), Water Heating and Water Conservation.
Cost-Effective approaches to reducing fossil fuels: Having already made the switch to full LED lighting in our largest facility, PowerPak will partner with building owners in facilities to further review cost-effective approaches to reducing fossil fuel usage.
GHG Emissions Target
Fully Supporting Electric Vehicles: PowerPak will aggressively accelerate the move toward electric cars and delivery vans, by transitioning our fleet of vans to electric vehicles. We will also explore opportunities and new technologies to reduce our fossil fuel usage on medium-duty trucks.
Keeping our Vendors accountable: PowerPak will implement vendor sustainability scorecards and engage in yearly reviews with each of our key partners to ensure everyone is doing their part towards a clean future.
Lowering our Carbon Footprint: PowerPak is committed to aggressively lowering our carbon footprint, through utilizing carbon offset strategies and engaging the services of consultants to build a pathway toward becoming Carbon Neutral.
Water Use Target
Partnering with Strategic Vendors: PowerPak has partnered with strategic vendors that utilize full water-cleaning systems and eliminate any potential risk to the environment through extensive filtration and restoration.
Waste Reduction Target
Recycling Initiatives: PowerPak has implemented a cardboard baler to recycle all cardboard and has aggressive goals to institute further recycle programs in the future. Some examples are plastic recycling, and a focus on using sustainable food sources.
Employee Training: PowerPak recognizes that focus on sustainability does not stop when the business closes for the day, which is why we will implement employee training on recycling and reusing to drive focus, not only at their place of work, but also in their homes.
