Toronto, Canada, 21 June 2018: Armstrong Fluid Technology has announced an initiative to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions by 2 million tonnes by the year 2022, the company said in a Press communiqué. It has also issued a challenge to industry participants to set similarly aggressive targets for the same 4-year time frame, the communiqué said.
Lex van der Weerd, CEO, Armstrong, said: “Organisations globally are being driven to achieve a zero footprint future. We believe this can best be achieved through key stakeholders focusing on solutions and timelines that will make zero footprint a near-term reality. We are both inviting and challenging all organisations to join us in pursuing the goal of zero footprint operations.”
At the recent Global Energy Summit in Toronto, Armstrong announced its commitment to reducing GHG among its installed customer base by 2 million tonnes by the year 2022, the communiqué said. This is equivalent to taking 600,000 cars off the road or offsetting the average annual CO2 emissions generated by 100,000 people, the communiqué further said.
Armstrong has already launched a global validation effort across a wide range of customer types and applications with the results being validated by Bureau Veritas, the communiqué said. According to Armstrong, the company is also significantly expanding the team of energy-savings specialists that will work closely with existing customers to measure, manage and enhance their current operations.
