Future is brighter

A huge focus of our sustainability strategy is to minimise negative environmental impact whilst remaining economically sustainable and socially responsible.

Using LED lights for business makes sense both financially and environmentally and four AGP facilities in North America achieved their goal to improve lighting levels sustainably by switching to energy efficient LED fixtures.

The new fixtures contribute, not only to better housekeeping and safety but also to improvements in inspection, production and quality. In addition, they also use less electricity thereby conserving natural resources and reducing the impact on the environment.

The new LED fixtures consume 20-30% of the total energy of the old fixtures and with added occupancy controls, the new lights automatically switch off when not in use. Thanks to the collaboration of our utility suppliers and lighting contractors, the future of these four AGP - North America facilities is brighter.
