The company also contributes to resource circulation in other ways such as by removing reusable parts from difficult to recycle cartridges and using them for new parts.
BROTHER INDUSTRIES (SLOVAKIA) said it is working on reducing CO2 emissions through efforts to save energy in its factory and offices including the utilisation of a geothermal exchange system for heating and air conditioning, creating power by installing solar panels, and purchasing CO2-free electricity that does not emit CO2 during power generation.
Besides efforts to save energy, the company offset its remaining emissions with carbon credits, purchased through United Nations (UN) Carbon Offset Platform resulting in its Scopes 1 and 2 CO2 emissions being deemed to meet the PAS 2060 standard.
The manufacturing facility is the Brother Group’s second to be certified after BROTHER INDUSTRIES (U.K.) in the United Kingdom.
