Mercian Labels Makes Sustainability Investments

Mercian Labels, Burntwood, UK, has invested more than $120,000 in energy reduction and on-site energy generation capabilities to address energy costs and maintain a competitive price advantage.

The move continues the company’s long-standing commitment to protecting the environment and reducing its carbon footprint.

The first step was to replace 28 traditional high-level lights in the production and warehousing areas with sensor-activated low-energy LED lighting. The new lighting only operates at full strength when a colleague is working in the area directly beneath it.

The company is on track to save around 43 percent in related energy costs while reducing its carbon footprint.

Mercian Labels also invested in on-site energy generation. The company installed more than 250 solar panels on the roof of its plant lane factory, which can generate over 98 megawatts of electricity each year.
