Canatu is now 100% powered by wind energy

At Canatu, our long-term goal is to deliver more sustainable technology and products to our customers. To decrease our environmental impact, Canatu has shifted from fossil fuels to renewable energy. Last year, we invested in a new transformer to secure our electricity needs in the future while also enabling Canatu’s switch to wind as an alternating energy source.

Canatu is now 100% powered by renewable wind energy. This transition is primed to reduce our CO2 emissions from electricity staggering 94%, while reducing our total CO2 emissions by 60%.

The CO2eqv emission savings correspond to ~30 average car emissions in a year, while the remaining CO2eqv is ~20 average car emissions in a year.

The move is a part of our sustainability strategy to decarbonize our own production by 2035.

Reducing CO2 emissions was prioritized for a good reason: electricity is the biggest contributor to our carbon footprint.

Renewable energy sources have minimal greenhouse gas emissions. More power generation based on renewables is therefore essential to achieving the targets of going CO2 neutral. While fossil fuels will eventually run out, renewable energy is here and will never run out.

In alignment with our sustainability strategy, we continue to work on 5 focus areas to improve our sustainability:

  1. Using renewable energy sources
    We will reduce CO2 equivalent emissions by 60% from 2020 levels
  2. Improving Canatu CNT synthesis efficiency
    We will reduce electricity consumption to a fifth per production unit by the end of 2023
  3. Reducing emissions
    We will reduce CO2 equivalent air emissions to a fifth per production unit by the end of 2025.
  4. Exploring bio-based materials
    We explore the availability of biobased materials across the value chain
  5. Carbon-neutral by 2035
    Our own production will be carbon neutral by 2035.

Using renewable energy is a prime example of how Canatu can make a massive impact and be part of the global trend towards fossil free products and production.
