The increase of efficiency in your manufacturing processes by using more efficient solutions not only benefits your pocket but it also benefits the environment once the CO2 emissions to generate the power to move such applications are considerably reduced. You can measure the reduction of CO2 you are participating in when switching to HIGHER efficiency products by using our Energy Savings Calculator.
The actual manufacturing processes of an electric motor, a frequency drive or a power transformer are certainly processes that use energy. WEG constantly invests in the modernization and optimization of our manufacturing processes so that they consume the minimum quantity of energy possible. Most of electric power in Brazil is produced by hydroelectric plants. This added to the fact that WEG participates in several reforestation programs makes our factories in Brazil CO2 emmission free.
It is the policy of the WEG Group to assure the lowest degree of environmental impact of its products and production processes by:
- Being in compliance with the applicable environmental legislation.
- Improving continuously by establishing environmental goals and targets.
- Acting preventively with the aim of protecting the environment in which it is inserted.
Besides this, WEG constantly participates in the development of new technologies to generate cleaner power. Get to know more about these applications:
