Americas: Crown to reduce energy consumption

SHARE

By the end of 2020, Crown aims to reduce energy consumption by 5% per billion standard units of production from 2015 levels.

In the same timeline, the company intends to reduce Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 10% per billion standard units of production from 2015 levels.

During 2015, Crown finalized 105 different emissions reduction initiatives that are anticipated to save over 10,000 mt of carbon dioxide (CO2) each year.

Examples include:

– A multi-year effort to replace recuperative oxidizers with more energy efficient equipment in several plants, yielding estimated annual savings of over 2,600 mt of CO2.

– A phased lighting upgrade program involving the use of highly energy efficient lighting devices and replacement of LED lighting across multiple facilities.
