OFTEN, WE ARE TOLD TO AIM HIGH, TO REACH FOR THE STARS. AT IMPACT INTERNATIONAL, WE ARE STILL REACHING FOR THE STARS WHILST WE CAPTURE THE SUN – ALEKS LAJOVIC – MANAGING DIRECTOR, IMPACT INTERNATIONAL PTY LTD.
Plastic, packaging and sustainability are three words that can be hard to put in the same sentence, especially when it comes to having a meaningful, positive, real life conversation. At Impact, we are delighted and proud to put these three words in the same sentence following the installation of our solar farm.
In April, we will commission a 290KwH solar farm at our Smithfield, NSW site which will reduce our CO2 emissions by more than 300 tonnes per year and generate in excess of 395 mWh’s of electricity each year. To put that into perspective, the average Australian house consumes 6,500 kWh per year. So, our solar farm could supply all the power needs to over 60 Australian homes. Our goal is that while the sun is shining, all tubes manufactured at our Smithfield manufacturing site will be made using green energy generated from our solar farm, meaning our tubes will be produced using zero carbon emissions. This project involves not only the installation of our solar farm but also updating motors to more energy efficient models, re-designing our factory layout to improve production efficiency and installing smarter lighting, which in turn reduces energy consumption.
Impact prides itself on offering tubes decorated to the highest standard and using Australian made raw materials wherever possible. The barrier properties of our tubes are considered superior, helping our customers keep their creams, ointments and lotions in pristine condition. Australian and New Zealand brands are doing extremely well in Asia (mainly China) based on the “clean and green” image that has been successfully promoted. Many brands state that their products are certified organic or are based on nature. Up until this point, the packaging used to house these creams, ointments and lotions has largely been left out of the conversation.
Through installing our solar farm and wanting to offer tubes manufactured using zero carbon emissions, our aim is to add to our customers’ story.
NOW YOU CAN SOURCE BEAUTIFUL LOOKING TUBES WITH MINIMAL ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT MANUFACTURED RIGHT HERE IN AUSTRALIA
Our partner, Smart Commercial Solar is building our solar farm and we will monitor the efficiency of our system which covers more than 800 sqm of ground space. What’s exciting is that this is energy production that you will actually be able to walk through. Customers visiting Impact will be able to photograph their tubes in the middle of the solar farm, providing a perfect image for savvy social media campaigns.
