UTILISING SOLAR ENERGY
Eva-Last achieves a huge offset of carbon emissions through the reuse of waste plastic and bamboo fibre. However, producing quality building materials is an energy intensive endeavour. As a company dedicated to protecting the environment, this runs contrary to the very heart of why we do what we do.
WHY SWITCHING TO SOLAR MATTERS
In order to reconcile our actions with our mission, we needed to address the way traditional manufacturing was affecting our carbon footprint. In 2017 we made the decision to begin manufacturing with solar power. This bold move has helped us drastically reduce our carbon emissions and move closer to being a truly holistically sustainable company. Eva-Last now has one of the largest production plants of its kind in the world thanks to the installation of an army of solar panels. Since 2017, 32 858 solar panels, or 88 716 m2 of solar panels, have been installed.
These solar panels produce an average of 44 000kWh of energy per day.
One of the prime instigators of global warming is energy production using fossil fuels, such as coal and oil. Fossil fuel production and emissions are responsible for as much as half the global surface temperature increase and roughly 30% of global sea level rise. This is why we have invested in solar and renewable energy – and we hope to inspire our partners, customers, and competitors to do the same.
