Grafityp’s growth in sustainability

2021.06.18 - Sustainability is one of the key elements at Grafityp

Grafityp solar panels


For Grafityp not only the results are important, but also the way in which we achieve them. Sustainable entrepreneurship is self-evident for us, and something we try to grow in every day. We have taken the following steps in recent months towards an even more sustainable company.

Solar panel park

At the beginning of this year, we invested in the construction of our own solar panel park on our company buildings and an upgrade of the high-voltage electrical installation. In total we installed 1,222 solar panels, which together account for a capacity of 550 kWp. Their energy production corresponds to the electricity consumption of about 150 families.

This investment helps us to reduce our primary energy consumption and indirect CO2 emissions by more than 40%.

New PVC-free products

We have been manufacturing pvc-free self-adhesive films for some time, we continue to innovate in our sustainable range.
