Today, there is a global push throughout industry to increase efforts towards a greener planet as everyone strives to save even a small percentage of their energy consumption. Rightfully so, everyone is looking to be ‘greener’, to use less energy and to reduce their carbon footprint, in order to achieve net zero emission within their operations.
