As part of LEMAN’s continuous journey towards a greener future, the company now has 8,000 square meters of solar cell panels on the roof of its warehouse premises in Vestby, Norway.
On a yearly basis, the solar cell panels produce approximately 1,160,000 kWh of renewable energy, which in all covers about 60 percent of the building’s energy demand.
“It is important to us at LEMAN that we, together with our customers, leave an environmental footprint that is as low as possible. Our building is already BREEAM rated very good, something we are proud of. In general, we have a large focus on sustainability. So, to us, installing solar cell panels on the roof has just been an obvious choice,” says Christer Busse, CEO of LEMAN Norway and adds:
“Bulk, together with Soleie and Solenergi FUSen, last year presented a to good solution to us, which enabled us to install a state-of-the-art solar cell panel system. With the agreement, we were the first commercial 3PL supplier in Norway to use solar energy for energy consumption.”
The construction was completed in the fall of 2021, and after operating for about a year, there is great satisfaction at LEMAN Norway:
“We know that we won't save the world with solar cells tomorrow - but for us it means that we both save on energy, that we produce green electricity ourselves, and that we make a small difference in the big picture. It is both good for business and good for the environment,” Christer Busse, CEO of LEMAN Norway states.
The good experience with solar cells from LEMAN Norway, which in 2022 has specifically saved the environment 462 tonnes of CO2, means that LEMAN offices in other countries will follow suit and install solar cells where it is possible and makes sense.
