When the Sustainability Revolution began to gain pace in the early noughties, companies initially, and understandably, looked inwards. The first drive in sustainable credentials was to put your own house in order, with directives around energy usage, packaging and materials, employee behaviours and a raft of initiatives that looked to lessen carbon footprint and increase green awareness on all fronts. So far so good.
It’s not just about you
But the requirement for profitability has always meant that commercially, quality at the best price, was the Mother Lode in terms of developing an increasingly global supply chain. While this brought frontline commercial benefits, and globalization has seen economies burgeon the world over, it has also brought companies the burden of scrutiny across the chain: Sustainability an increasing focus in this regard.
A wide-ranging Impact Policy
P2i has been on its own Environmental journey since its inception in 2004. Like other companies, P2i apply non-financial factors in order to analyze processes and identify material risks and growth opportunities. As a global leader in sustainably protecting products, P2i are dependent on collaborating with a complex supply chain of innovative partners. Our needs are not necessarily driven by price, though of course a factor, but in the need to keep developing P2i products to be ever more efficient and exceptional through time.
Working with the industry
Today P2i are developing a robust range of protection solutions that ensures the lowest total cost of ownership for conformally protecting electronics from corrosion damage, whilst ensuring the highest reliability and circularity. As the leader in ultra-thin plasma conformal coating solutions and having commercialised a generation of halogen-free plasma conformal coatings, P2i work with customers who have profound Supply Chain Sustainability programmes that run in parallel with our own efforts and ensure the best-in-class performance for all stakeholders.
Striking carbon emission reductions
Our advances within the industry are considerable. For example, P2i could save 50K tonnes carbon emissions on mobile phones, which is a sizeable amount of OEM’s suppliers’ carbon emissions avoided. This success is the result of our in-house expertise and capabilities as a sector front-runner and also on the high demands of our suppliers, who work with us to establish best-in-class products.
