Anduro is raising the roof on sustainability…literally

Anduro, a premier global flexible packaging company, has just taken a huge step towards sustainability with its new manufacturing facility in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. The 155,000-square-foot plant isn’t just big; it’s also green. Every inch of the roof is covered in solar panels produced by Canadian Solar, ensuring renewable energy powers the facility’s operations. The initial results are exceeding expectations, with the panels providing around 80% the building’s energy needs.

Harvested from the sun, solar power is a clean and renewable energy source that helps reduce the carbon footprint. Invented in 1883 by American Charles Fritts and installed on a New York City rooftop shortly after, solar energy is now light years ahead, energizing many parts of the world. By using solar panels, Anduro is cutting down its reliance on fossil fuels and showcasing how achievable and valuable green energy can be. There are several benefits to solar energy,  some which are realized immediately while others that will be appreciated by generations to come.

“We’re excited to incorporate solar energy into powering our everyday needs,” says CEO Marc Datelle. “But to be honest, we feel like we’re just scratching the surface in our sustainability mission. We’re so excited for what’s to come.”

The new facility has sustainability at its core with nearly every aspect of its purposeful design aimed at minimizing environmental impact. In addition to the solar panels, there are high-efficiency heat exchange systems and water reclamation technologies that further reduce energy consumption and minimize waste. All this along with a few other features ensure the building is carbon neutral (scope 2 level) as certified by Climate Partner.
