Learn more about what sustainability means to us here http://www.atlascopcogroup.com/en/sustainability If you want to see what we’re up to in our social networks, follow us on: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/atlascopco/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/atlascopcogroup Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/company/4804/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/atlascopcogroup/ We are on the roof of the plant, and we have equipped it with 1.3 kilometres of solar panels. With that we are almost autonom in energy. We save 600 tonnes of CO2 per year now. We are very proud of it, and this is what we call leadership in Atlas Copco for sustainability. We want sustainability to protect the planet. And for example with our latest compressor XRHS 650 we have saved 21 tonnes of CO2 per year. For the mine we have the new electric portable compressor XAT 400E that is completely free of CO2. We have also this building that is a Gold Certified green building. It means that the plant is not using almost any energy. It’s linked to the good insulation that we have on the roof, instead of having air conditioning. We have also an harvesting system here. So we collect the water from the roof, but also from our streets. We bring this water, we clean it, we put it in an artificial lake there. And after the after the monsoon season we are able to collect it back and reuse it. So thanks to that we are autonom in water during eight months of the year. And we are also investing every year. There is always a better way.
