Sulzer Mixpac has received a CO2 inventory certificate from TÜV NORD as part of its continued strategy to improve sustainability. The certificate verifies the carbon footprint of the business, helping to identify areas for improvement to minimize its overall footprint.

As a leading provider of liquid application and mixing technologies, Sulzer Mixpac has committed to a strategy designed to reduce its carbon emissions by 30%.

As part of this journey, the TÜV NORD assessment considers emissions from fuel and energy consumption (including gas, diesel, district heating, propane, electricity and fuel consumption of company vehicles) as well as emissions from energy upstream and business travel. For Sulzer Mixpac, the assessment covered 7 operational sites located in China, Germany, Poland, Switzerland, UK and USA.

Levi Quinn, Chief Operating Officer APS at Sulzer said: “Every year our sites report their direct and indirect energy consumption, with the carbon footprint then calculated according to the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) protocol and ISO 14063-1 standards. This year, we have gone a step further and had our results confirmed by an independent third party. This illustrates our commitment to improving the sustainability of our operations and will directly influence company policy. At the same time, this transparency also helps to support our customers’ carbon reduction strategies.”

Sulzer Mixpac’s commitment to improving the sustainability of its operations aligns with a wider strategy across Sulzer and its brands. This is exemplified by the liquid cosmetics packaging manufacturer, and part of Sulzer, GEKA also certifying its CO2 with TÜV NORD.
