All industrial activities have varying degrees of environmental impact caused by emissions, waste, and the use of energy and materials that result in pollution and depletion of natural resources. TUPEX has been working for many years to reduce its impacts, both within its own plants and offices, and those caused by its products.
As part of these efforts, TUPEX now uses less material and energy, streamlines its means of transportation and makes increasing efforts to design products that can be recycled.
Improving performance starts in the design phase of new products and processes. Tools and training are provided for design engineers to carry out environmental Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) to assess a product’s environmental impact throughout its life cycle. An LCA indicates where improvements can be made, for example in areas relating to material selection, energy efficiency and recycling.
