Huhtamaki-PPL Ltd (HPPL), India’s flexible packaging specialist is installing state-of-the-art 1.8MW rooftop solar power units at six key manufacturing plants across India. The rooftop solar power project will reduce 20 MT of CO2 emissions annually; equivalent to planting about 100,000 trees. All installations are equipped with net metering, online performance monitoring and high-end safety systems and will be operational within the year. The project was carried out in partnership with Swiss headquartered Talesun Energy and EnergyX.
Commenting on the project, Dr Arup Basu, managing director, Huhtamaki-PPL said, “This project forms part of our larger environmental sustainability program that includes reduction of carbon footprint, developing innovative recyclable laminate structures and helping shape a circular economy. It is important for industry players like us to help build awareness among consumers that by using flexible packaging, they are being environmentally responsible.”
