An Advance Step to Green Power
Advance International Cleaning Systems (NZ) Ltd has taken further steps in protecting and preserving the environment that they work and live in. Over the past few years, Advance has been implementing numerous environmental initiatives such as waste management, recycling and disposal protocols including employee engagement and orientation. Advance’s range of environmental cleaning chemicals, Advance Nature, is Environmental Choice NZ licenced.
In April 2016, Advance flipped the switch to using solar energy generation from solar panels mounted at its manufacturing and blending site in Otahuhu, Auckland.
The 15KW solar unit aims to serve the plant’s electricity needs meeting 100% of its annual consumption. This greatly benefits the environment, reducing its carbon footprint by using the solar energy coming from the sun. This way, Advance contributes in lowering the load on the local electricity grids benefitting the community. The operating and electricity costs of Advance will further be reduced, in such a way that there will be more resources available for its future environmental programmes.
