At Promateris, we've always been passionate about pioneering sustainable solutions in the packaging industry. Our commitment to environmental stewardship drives every aspect of our business, from product development to manufacturing processes. Last year we were thrilled to share a monumental step forward in our sustainability journey: the installation of a 1 MWp solar panel system on our rooftop.

Solar energy represents a pivotal advancement in renewable energy technology, offering a plethora of benefits for both businesses and the planet. By harnessing the power of the sun, we're not only reducing our carbon footprint but also embracing a cleaner, more sustainable future.

Here's why solar energy is a game-changer for Promateris and the packaging industry as a whole:

Reduced Carbon Footprint: Solar energy is a clean and renewable energy source that produces minimal greenhouse gas emissions. By generating electricity from sunlight, we're significantly reducing our reliance on fossil fuels, thereby lowering our carbon emissions and environmental impact.

Energy Independence: With our solar panel installation, we're taking control of our energy production. By generating electricity on-site, we're less vulnerable to fluctuations in energy prices and supply chain disruptions. This newfound energy independence strengthens our resilience and ensures continuity in operations.

Cost Savings: Investing in solar energy offers long-term financial benefits. While the initial setup costs may require an investment, the ongoing operational costs are minimal. Over time, the savings generated from reduced energy bills can offset the initial investment, resulting in substantial cost savings for Promateris.

Enhanced Sustainability of Packaging: The integration of solar energy aligns seamlessly with our core mission of producing bio-based and compostable packaging solutions. By powering our manufacturing processes with clean energy, we're further reducing the environmental impact of our products. Our bio-based packaging, coupled with solar energy, creates a holistic approach to sustainability, ensuring that every aspect of our operations contributes to a greener planet.

Community Impact: Our commitment to solar energy extends beyond our facility walls. By leading by example, we hope to inspire other businesses to embrace renewable energy solutions and contribute to the collective effort to combat climate change. Together, we can build a more sustainable future for generations to come.

We're immensely grateful for the expertise provided by Norsk Energi and the support of EEA and Norway Grants in making our solar panel project a reality. Their guidance and assistance have been invaluable in driving our sustainability initiatives forward.

At Promateris, we believe that sustainability is not just a choice but a responsibility. With solar energy as a cornerstone of our green packaging initiative, we're proud to be at the forefront of innovation in the packaging industry.
