This new unit, installed in the main building of the Maia Distribution Centre, will enable CIN to directly produce part of the energy consumed in its industrial activity, leading to a global autonomy of about 31% of the facilities’ total energy consumption. 

Reducing the emission if 94.9 tons of CO2 per year

CIN seeks to improve its eco-efficiency by focusing on an active Environmental Management policy. The new photovoltaic production unit is supposed to reduce the emission of 94.9 tons of CO2 per year - equivalent to a reduction in 21 hectares of forestry and the removal of 53 cars from the road. The overall autonomy achieved for the plant's operations corresponds to enough energy to supply 87 households.

CIN's Project and Engineering Director Fernando Pinheiro states: "CIN wants to be aligned with a strategy that helps to provide the best products, while reducing its activity's environmental impact. The investment in this new photovoltaic unit allows us to use eco-efficient energy without jeopardising the usual production levels needed. We are increasingly sure that this is the way forward and that a brand like the CIN adds value to its consumers, especially as it focuses on sustainable and responsible policies that reduce the ecological footprint".
