We are Serious about Sustainability
One of the biggest winners of the Plastfix solution is the natural environment. Currently there are thousands of tonnes of bumper bars, headlights, and other automotive plastic waste being dumped illegally, stored on farmland, or put into landfill.
Adopting the Plastfix solution has proven to reduce automotive plastic waste by 70%. As a flow-on effect, your general waste will also reduce due to the reduction of packaging for new parts.
Plastfix is partnering with leading professionals in carbon emissions management and sustainability to offer our customers a CO2 reduction reading with every plastic component we repair. This estimate is calculated using a matrix of energy saving mathematical equations. The calculation covers the whole repair process, stretching back to the material of the new part, logistics, packaging and delivery methods. It also factors-in the preparation process of particular components, for example parts of a bumper bar that may have required painting. For components that have no recycling value and head straight to landfill (eg: headlights), the benefit of replacing or repairing the component is also taken into account. Having this information can help businesses make smarter decisions about component parts and help divert unnecessary waste ending up in landfill.
Worked with Plastfix recently? You can find this reading displayed on your customer invoice under CO2 Estimated Saving. All on-going customers also receive a quarterly CO2 reduction statement and an end-of-year certificate to display in their workplace for their contribution to reduce emissions.
Our CO2 saving estimate serves as a reminder to the industry and raises awareness that repairing parts rather than replacing them is a win for everyone: The customer, the environment and the economy.
