Sustainable Development ReportManaging Energy EfficiencyAfter a three year analysis period 140 production units and buildings have been x-rayed at the end of 2010 using theBayer Climate Check. The results will be transformed into energy savings and emission reductions using so calledenergy management systems. A systematic and structured approach lifting the emission reduction potentials willbe guaranteed by these systems. The energy management systems have been adapted to specific Bayer sub-groupproduction and work processes.STRUCTese™ (Structured Efficiency System for Energy) is a management system developed by Bayer Material Sciencetogether with Bayer Technology Services and Bayer Business Services with the aim of sustainable optimizing energyefficiency. It will build on the results of the Bayer Climate Check and help the company to ensure that the identifiedpotential for reducing greenhouse gas emissions is exploited to the full. By the end of 2012, it is expected that 60plants around the world will be employing this new management tool, with which the company wants to setstandards for industry in general. The system had already been introduced at 30 plants by December 2010, leading tocuts in primary energy consumption of 550,000 megawatt hours and the avoidance of 135,000 metric tons of co2emissions.

Sainsburys toilet roll tuck squeezes out carbon savings8 May 2012, source edie newsroomSainsburys is shrinking the volume of its own-brand toilet rolls - apackaging move which it claims will take 500 lorries off the roadeach year.The retailer is the first company reduce the diameter of the innercardboard tube on every roll by 12mm, cutting the number ofdelivery lorries required by the equivalent of 140,000kg of CO2.However it was quick to allay fears that consumers might beshort-changed by the move. On-pack information will reassurecustomers that each roll contains the same number of sheets andthe same quality."Our customers will still get the same number of sheets, but byshrinking the tube, we are able to reduce the overall package size,meaning less lorries are needed on the road to deliver theproducts to our stores," said Fiona Miall, toilet roll buyer forSainsburys.She added that the relatively small packaging development wouldresult in significant carbon savings. As part of its 20 by 20Sustainability Plan, the retailer has pledged to reduce its ownpackaging by half compared to 2005 levels.New packaging designs on Sainsburys own brand products havegenerated an 11% reduction in the past two years. The new smallerrolls are set to arrive in Sainsburys distribution depots this weekand will hit stores across the country shortly afterwards.
Kraft Cuts Packaging with Lifecycle Analysis • Kraft Foods cut the amount of plastic packaging in its YES Pack salad dressing by 60 percent using a lifecycle analysis system, the company has announced. • Kraft’s LCA centers around its Eco- Calculator, a proprietary tool that figures the percentage of post- consumer recycled material in a given package design, along with the amount of energy and carbon dioxide emissions required to create the package. Based on data from the EPA, the Department of Energy and packaging industry groups, the tool also tells packaging designers how efficiently they’re using materials and….
Sunny Delight CNG Fleet to Cut 400,000 Gallons of Diesel • Sunny Delight Beverages has put into service a fleet of three compressed natural gas vehicles for distribution in southern California, in markets including Los Angeles, Mira Loma, Carson and Riverside. • The move is expected to cut about 400,000 gallons of diesel fuel in 2012, and to cut well-to-wheel greenhouse gas by 23 percent versus diesel- powered engines. • Transportation management and logistics provider Transplace said that it executed a transportation plan that focused on keeping costs down for the beverage manufacturer. The companies have a five-year arrangement. Transplace manages the carriers and the fueling options within the network, and Glacier Transportation deployed the fleet. • A number of companies are testing a transition to CNG fleets. In January, AT&T ordered 1,200 Chevrolet Express CNG cargo vans for delivery to its service centers nationwide, in General Motors’ largest ever order of CNG vehicles. Refuse collection firm Waste Management announced a pilot program across four states to introduce natural-gas powered Rotopress waste collection trailers. • Also, Veolia ES Solid Waste revved up Indiana’s first fleet of CNG powered refuse trucks in April.
Iron Mountain Looks to Solar PV; Johns Hopkins Brings 818kW Online • Information management company Iron Mountain says it will install solar PV systems on the roofs of eight document storage facilities in Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Jersey – the first stage of a review of rooftop solar generation potential across its 1,000 global facilities. • The company said the panels are part of a strategy for fixing long-term utility rates while meeting environmental goals. • The new panels are expected to produce more than 5.2 million kWh of energy in their first year of operation and offset nearly 7 million pounds of carbon dioxide each year. Iron Mountain has made 20-year fixed rate purchase power agreements with SunEdison, in which the solar power services provider will finance, build and maintain the installations at each site, while Iron Mountain will purchase the energy generated. • In other solar developments, Johns Hopkins University has brought online an 818 kW solar PV system on seven buildings on three of its campuses in Baltimore, in one of the largest university rooftop solar arrays in the country and the largest in the city, energy partners Eastlight Renewable Ventures and RGS Energy said. The companies estimate that the new systems will generate 950,925 kWh of power in the first year and prevent over 35 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions over the life of the system. • Eastlight developed the project and owns the systems. RGS Energy planned, engineered and installed the systems. Financing is through a long-term power purchase agreement that required no up-front capital from the university, Eastlight said.
