Armstrong Fluid Technology celebrated achieving some significant energy savings milestones during Greenbuild 2015 in Washington D.C. on November 18. Armstrong’s Energy Savings Dashboard indicated that as of mid-November, it had helped customers achieve the following savings since 2007:
- More than 725,000,000 kWh electricity
- In excess of 235,000 tons of CO2 equivalent
- Total carbon savings equal to taking more than 51,300 cars off the road
- Over $70 million in energy savings
“We are very pleased that we can combine our Design Envelope Technology with a holistic approach to fluid flow management to help our customers achieve the most energy efficient solutions available,” commented Steve Cooper, Armstrong Fluid Technology’s Director – Sustainable Design.
The company launched a dedicated sustainability initiative named Planet Proposition in 2013 with leadership teams at Armstrong sites in the USA, Canada, China, India and the UK signing on to the Charter. It has three strands: Our Solutions (energy efficient systems which help customers reduce energy consumption, save money and lower carbon emissions); Our Environment (improved environmental performance in company operations); and Our Community (educating and supporting Armstrong stakeholders and neighbors to make environmentally responsible choices at work and at home).
Armstrong has also made solid progress towards the company’s targets for waste minimization and recycling. The amount of waste sent to landfill is monitored on a monthly basis, as well as the amount recycled or used to produce energy. Improvements have led to significantly increased amounts of recycling in many of Armstrong’s facilities.
“Improving environmental performance has taken on greater importance for us over the last two years and Planet Proposition has become our new way of approaching business on an everyday basis,” Cooper summarized.
