The company Zafirakis Fasteners has always aimed to operate with low environmental impact. Its primary objective has been to decrease annual energy consumption and to recycle unnecessary materials. To achieve this, the company has implemented special blue bins throughout its facilities for the recycling of packaging materials, paper, and other recyclables such as aluminium and glass. These efforts have resulted in an impressive annual recycling volume of 18 tons.
Unfortunately, the need for environmental protection and sustainable development has grown significantly in recent times. Zafirakis Fasteners has embraced the challenge and expanded its actions in this area accordingly.
In the last year, Zafirakis Fasteners in collaboration with Appliance Recycling SA and AFIS SA recycle electronic devices and batteries through all three of its points of sale. Furthermore, in collaboration with Watt + Volt, has installed a publicly accessible electric vehicle charging station at its headquarters located at Demesticha 9 in Thessaloniki.
Taking its commitment to environmental sustainability to new heights, the company is planning to implement photovoltaic panels within its privately owned facilities in Thessaloniki and Kalochori by the end of 2023 to cover its energy requirements, to achieve a zero carbon footprint in this sector and reducing environmental impact for a greener future.
Finally, for more suggestions and updates on sustainability issues Zafirakis Fasteners has created a Facebook group "Together We Build a Sustainable World" where everyone can discuss actions to improve our quality of life, protect our ecosystem and preserve natural resources for future generations.
