Carbon Impact

Average CO2 emission saved by Adapa’s Adaptive Moulds:

13,000 tons of CO2 per year

One of the primary causes for concern for environmentalists across the globe is the significant rise in the carbon footprint left behind by individuals and organizations alike. While it is important that everybody does their bit to reduce the impact of CO2 emissions, it is critical that organizations take proactive measures to ensure that we leave behind a better planet for our future generations.

At Adapa, sustainability and carbon neutrality are part of our core principles. Our company is built on the foundation of reusability, and we will continue to strive to incorporate this belief into everything that we do.

One of the biggest environmental pollutants is polystyrene. It contains toxic substances such as styrene and benzene, which are extremely hazardous to humans. And yet, it continues to be used as the primary component to make moulds in the manufacturing and construction sectors.

The total number of Adaptive Moulds in use globally as of today, is equivalent to 1,500 tons worth of polystyrene moulds. From a sustainability perspective, this means that our moulds help reduce at least 13,000 tons of CO2 from being emitted out into the world, annually.

To put that in perspective, 13,000 tons of CO2 roughly translates to:

  • 30,000 barrels of oil
  • 51 million kms driven by an average passenger vehicle
  • 800 flights (per passenger) from Melbourne to London

Adapa is committed to contributing in whatever way we can, to reduce the impact that greenhouse gas emissions have on our planet. We urge our industry partners to pitch-in as well, by looking at non-polluting, environment-friendly methods of production for their future projects.
