At Idé-Pro we have great ambitions for sustainability and take responsibility
We want a leading position with responsible production of items in plastic, light metal, and EPP/EPS and strive to be a good example for our customers, suppliers, business partners, and competitors.
So far, we have focused mostly on scopes 1 and 2, including our sustainability in the form of energy and energy management. Now, we are also looking into scope 3 with estimated life cycle calculations, where we see how much influence the raw material part has on climate impact. Therefore, our main objective is to achieve a significant reduction of our climate impact, through a continued focus on energy and now also sustainable materials, as well as guidance in this regard. These are the areas where we see the greatest potential in reducing our climate impact.
Energy is an area we have long focused on. We work continuously with energy management and optimisation of our energy consumption. E.g. we reuse energy for different processes and use free cooling. We are also certified under ISO 50.001.
We offer our customers guidance in selecting sustainable materials, to achieve the most sustainable production. Our customers' choices of material play a big part, as raw materials and where they originate are essential influencers of the sustainability of products when looking at their life cycle. To aid our guidance, we use our life cycle analysis calculator and have experienced how CO2e emissions have more than halved by e.g. changing material or raw material origin.
Our climate impact is our responsibility
We address the causes of the climate impact our value chain causes. When we know the fundamental causes of our climate impact, we can act and take responsibility for ourselves and optimise our value chain. We want to be responsible in all stages of our production and manufacturing of items in plastic, light metal, and EPP/EPS and will do what we can to limit our climate impact - both directly and indirectly. Since 2021, we have reported our CO2 emissions and energy consumption to the international Carbon Disclosure Project. In this way, we can be transparent and give stakeholders insight into our efforts.
Recycling at Idé-Pro
Post-industry recycling, also called PIR, includes the reuse of surplus materials that remain after production processes in the industry.
At Idé-Pro, we reduce waste by purchasing recycled materials and recycling our own excess materials. We crush surplus plastic internally, just as we remelt surplus metal and reuse it. Parts of our crush are compounded in-house, while some are compounded externally. Recycling is not only good for the environment, we also optimise our consumption of resources and materials.
Post-consumer recycling also called PCR, includes the reuse of raw materials converted from consumer waste. This means products and goods that have been used by consumers and then recycled.
We work actively with PCR through our in-house compounding facility. Soon we will expand the capacity with two new compounding machines, which will be used for both PCR and PIR.
