"Green Gluing" for a year
In May 2019, the Robatech Group launched a new branding. For a year now, the Swiss manufacturer of industrial adhesive application systems has been using "Green Gluing" to draw more attention to its innovative and sustainable solutions. The donation from the voting campaign launched at that time has now been donated to three environmental organizations.
"The environment is important to us" was the title of Robatech AG's voting campaign in May 2019 in favor of the environmental organizations Rainforest Alliance, Ocean Conservancy and Birdlife International. For each vote cast, 5 Swiss francs were credited to the accounts of the organisations concerned. The interim results in the ranking reflected the explosive nature of current environmental issues over time: In May, the topic of avoiding plastics moved the environmental debate. When the forest fires broke out in the Amazon in August 2019, the tide turned. In the end, Rainforest Alliance received almost 50 percent of the cap amount of 10,000 Swiss francs.
Behind the voting campaign and the new company branding lies a corporate philosophy that characterizes Robatech through and through: With every sustainable measure, no matter how small, something can be achieved. Even if adhesive application per se is not necessarily environmentally friendly, Robatech's energy-efficient application systems enable adhesive to be used very sparingly in industrial processes. With a fine spray application of adhesive for pallet stabilization, it is even possible to avoid using tons of plastic film to wrap pallets. In addition, Robatech guarantees an exceptionally long backward compatibility for its application systems for spare parts of 30 years.Sustainability also plays a major role in production. In 2014 Robatech installed a solar system on the roof of the warehouse. The system covers around 50 percent of the total energy requirements at the company's headquarters in Muri. In winter, waste heat from the compressed air system is used to heat the warehouse. Packaging is also used several times. "Green Gluing" therefore stands for much more than optimized gluing processes. "Green Gluing" combines innovation and efficiency for more sustainability in companies and offers exactly the service that keeps Robatech equipment alive for a long time.
