MPS is now turning to its supply chain to lower its carbon footprint with electricity powered by renewable energy. By purchasing 25 percent green energy, the company will reduce its annual carbon dioxide emissions by over 1,200 metric tons, which equates to eliminating 1,200 tons of coal or 114,042 gallons of gasoline each year. Based on the EPA Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator, this reduction is the equivalent of removing 245 passenger vehicles from the road or reducing the demand for “brown energy” to power 155 homes annually.
“Our transition to renewable energy is the next logical step in developing our sustainable solutions platform,” said Dennis Kaltman President of MPS. “We can now help customers layer sustainable features into their products, including recycled, recyclable, or renewable materials, chain-of-custody certifications, responsible manufacturing practices, and a lower carbon footprint.”
