For Sealed Air Corporation, the $1 million annual savings it will realize from its recent investment in an 11-acre solar farm is just a perk that goes along with doing what's right.
Toward a goal: "We always have sustainability in mind with everything that we do, whether it is a new product or a new facility," said Sealed Air President of the Americas Tobias Grasso. "We always ask, ‘What is this bringing to us?' and ‘How is this advancing our mission to leave our world better than we found it?' Because we have a stated goal to be net-zero carbon neutral in our operations by 2040, we want to make sure that all our investments are in line with that strategy."
Earlier this year, a $9 million solar installation at Sealed Air's Madera, California, manufacturing facility began generating electricity-at a rate capable of fulfilling 98% of the plant's electricity needs, according to company calculations.
The solar farm is integrated into the legacy power system so that system has a backup energy source when needed.
