ARPRO provides a quantifiable and significant environmental benefit. The independent third party peer reviewed life cycle assessment (LCA) quantifies the benefit from the use of ARPRO as twelve times greater than the impact. The main driver is ARPRO allowing weight reduction and so reducing fuel consumption.
The ARPRO LCA evaluates the environmental impact of the production, use and disposal of a typical ARPRO seat-core.
CO2(e) savings result from the ability to deliver component weight reductions of up to 35%. If this saving is applied to the number of cars sold annually, an environmental saving of nearly 16 million tonnes of CO2(e) could be achieved.
Our environmental footprint is important to us for many different reasons. We take great care in keeping any effect we have on the environment to the absolute minimum. There are several factors that we consider to ensure we are doing everything we can:
Since 2011 we have reduced our CO2 by 34%!
We continually look at our energy consumption in all areas of the business.
