Making a positive contribution in sustaining our environment
LED Lighting Upgrade Project
In 2019 ACA Threads commissioned Province Lighting to upgrade all our existing lighting to LED lighting, also known as Light-Emitting Diode, an energy-efficient source of lighting.
1000 Olive Trees
With the worldwide growing concern for our environment, we are committed to make a positive contribution in sustaining the longevity of our environment for the future by reducing our carbon footprint. One of the ways we do this is by utilising the unused land on our factory premises to plant olive trees. To date we have planted 1000 olive trees to help reduce the greenhouse gas CO2 from the air and offset our emissions.
Our Zero Landfill Project has kept more than 300 cubic metres of polypropylene from entering the landfill.
1 x 20 cubic metre skip per month at a yearly cost of R45 000 to no skip, only 2 wheelie bins per week at no cost to company.
Utilising Solar Energy
In 2013 ACA Threads installed a solar water heating system for the dye house and in 2015 a 131kWp photovoltaic solar power system was installed. By supplementing a percentage of our electricity usage with renewable energy to power our production line reduces our contribution of harmful carbon dioxide emissions and other greenhouse gases.
Water Recharge Project
Groundwater recharge, deep drainage or deep percolation is a hydrologic process, where water moves downward from surface water to groundwater. Recharge is the primary method through which water enters an aquifer.
Borehole & Water Purification Project
ACA Threads always keeps an eye on the future and we strive to constantly become more efficient, have less impact on the environment and create sustainability for our clients all over Southern Africa.
