Reducing the environmental footprint of the manufacturing process used to create Ariel products is another key priority of our sustainability mission. We have made significant progress in recent years: today our European operations use 28% less energy and 22% less water to make the same amount of products than they did in 2010.
Our UK manufacturing site uses 20% less energy and 13% less water to make the same amount of products, compared with that used in 2010.
Our French factory, which not only supplies France, but also supplies all Ariel purclean and Ariel PODs products for Europe, uses 100% renewable wind electricity in its operations and has improved its manufacturing efficiencies to reduce GHG emission by 27%, and use 36% less energy and 38% less water to produce the same amount of products since 2010.
Both factories sends zero manufacturing waste to landfill.
Our corporate vision is to power all our plants with 100% renewable energy and have zero consumer and manufacturing waste going to landfill. To find out more about our corporate sustainability goals click here.
