Leading by Example: Our Zero Carbon Electricity Journey Since March 2020

At Just Paper Tubes, our commitment to sustainability is not just about meeting expectations; it's about setting new benchmarks. In March 2020, we embarked on a significant phase of our environmental stewardship journey, transitioning entirely to Zero Carbon Electricity. This strategic move was aimed at aligning our operations with our core values of innovation and sustainability, ensuring that every Cardboard Tube, Carpet Pole, Label Core, and Tape Core we produce is a testament to our commitment to the environment.

Embracing Zero Carbon Electricity: The Journey


Since March 2020, Just Paper Tubes has powered its manufacturing processes entirely through Zero Carbon Electricity. This means that all the energy we use comes from sources that emit no carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, including renewables like wind, solar, and hydro, as well as nuclear power. This initiative has placed us at the forefront of the sustainable manufacturing movement, significantly reducing our carbon footprint and contributing to the global fight against climate change.


The Power of Solar: Our On-Site Contribution


A cornerstone of our Zero Carbon Electricity initiative is our on-site solar installations, which meet approximately 37.8% of our total energy demand. These installations are more than just a power source; they're a clear demonstration of our proactive approach to sustainability. The energy generated is substantial, enough to power the equivalent of 61 average UK homes for a year, or to propel an electric vehicle around the globe 36 times. This is a powerful illustration of how renewable energy can have a tangible impact on the world.


Why Zero Carbon Electricity Matters to Us


Our decision to switch to Zero Carbon Electricity in March 2020 was driven by a recognition of the urgent need for sustainable practices in all aspects of business. By making this transition, we not only reduce our environmental impact but also align ourselves with the values and expectations of our customers and partners, who increasingly prioritize eco-friendly products and practices. This initiative is a testament to our dedication to making a positive difference in the world, one step at a time.


The Impact and Beyond


Since making the switch, we've seen a profound impact on our operations and the environment. Our commitment to Zero Carbon Electricity and renewable energy sources like our solar installations positions Just Paper Tubes as a leader in sustainable manufacturing. It's a responsibility we take seriously, and we're continually looking for ways to innovate and improve our environmental footprint.


As we move forward, our journey towards sustainability continues. Our adoption of Zero Carbon Electricity in March 2020 was a significant milestone, but it's just the beginning. We are committed to exploring new technologies and practices that further our environmental goals, ensuring that Just Paper Tubes remains at the cutting edge of sustainable manufacturing.
