Water Conservation

  • Redirecting steam produced in the manufacturing process to heat work spaces at our Larne, Northern Ireland facility
  • Installing a 1.25-million-liter rain water harvesting system at our manufacturing plant in India
  • From FY 2014 to FY 2017, our operations in India reduced water consumption by 40.79 percent, which was accomplished by:
    • Improving water recycling
    • Eliminating unnecessary processes and improving other procedures
    • Adding sensor taps in critical areas and replacing the on/off taps with push type taps
    • Replacing leaky water lines
  • Recycling wastewater at our Vietnam manufacturing plant for irrigation of the onsite gardens

Energy Use and Carbon Footprint

  • Increasing energy efficiency at our Larne, Northern Ireland facility by replacing an old, inefficient cooling tower, which reduced electrical consumption by 31,500 kilowatts per hour
  • Decreasing energy usage from the previous year by 225,120 kilowatts per hour at our Larne, Northern Ireland facility by reducing the number of air changes per hour when the clean room is not producing product
  • Generating biogas from food waste to fuel the cafeteria cooking stoves at our facility in India
  • Providing all Lakewood, Colorado associates with a free EcoPass to encourage use of public transportation to commute to and from work
  • Installing solar panels at our Vietnam manufacturing facility canteen for hot water, which reduced liquid propane gas consumption by 20 percent
  • Improving efficiencies at our India operations, including equipment upgrades, monitoring energy consumption, improving efficiency of the compressed air system and optimizing the HVAC system temperature from FY 2014 to FY 2017 has resulted in the following accomplishments:
    • Reduced the consumption of furnace oil for their steam boilers by 20 percent
    • Reduced electricity consumption by 15.85 percent
 



Our Zaventem, Belgium office has also gone green—with the addition of four green parking spots at the entrance to our Europe, Middle East and Africa regional headquarters reserved for electric vehicles. In 2017, we installed two Nexxtender Advance Dual Pole units, allowing up to four vehicles the possibility to charge. Terumo BCT is also exploring how we can expand our electric car fleet.

Koen Beernaert, Finance Director, was one of the first associates to use the new electric charging parking spots for his BMW 530e Plug-In Hybrid car. He shares,

The choice for a hybrid car was made based upon the total cost of ownership where I made a conscious decision to drive more electric as it is eco-friendly and cheaper. The charging poles at the office and the discipline to charge at home allow me to drive 50 percent of the commute electric.
