Our Green Spirit
At ARCTIC, we build technology to improve and advance everyone's living quality. It is just natural for us to cherish what is more important than any product - our environment. Efficiency and Innovation are natural by-products of "thinking green". We save energy, minimize waste and thus reduce our carbon footprint.
Optimized packaging
Optimized packaging aims to reduce CO² emission in every possible way. Our team of designers creates the best-fit packaging that's slim, compact, light and protective. Compared to the industry standard our efforts allow us to lower packaging materials and volume by 40%. This does not just allow us to reduce 40% of packaging waste, but also decrease the transportation emissions and carbon footprint by a whopping 40%.

In 2014 we reduce additional the plastic part of our packaging almost about 90% through using recyclable cardboard.
Recycling Program
We as ARCTIC participate in a recycling program organized by "Der Grüne Punkt" - the leading provider of take-back systems in Germany. In 2013 we saved again more than 20 tons of CO². This means that we saved more than 82 tons of CO² since starting the program in 2010. This amount is equivalent to the carbon sequestration by 1,860 tree seedlings for 10 years.
Our contribution for the environment
ARCTIC is a Carbon Neutral company since the year 2011. We reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the full amount of our carbon footprint by investing into renewable energy projects and recycling.

Overall, we are proud to contribute and be a part in these renewable energy projects, where we can promise to make a difference to everyone's life by taking responsibility for our environment. In addition to the environmental and climate benefits, the projects as well benefit the local area socio-economically by creating jobs, training and sensibilising people for environmental protection. At the same time it offers scholarship programs and mobile health units provide free examination and treatment to the local communities. Besides lowering the global greenhouse gas emissions, it significantly improves the local air, soil and water quality.
2013 - The power of the elements

Geothermal project in Indonesia - The treasure lies in the depths

- Climate protection with the most advanced and cleanest energy
  source in the world
- Annual emission reduction of 100.000 tons of CO²

One of the greatest treasures in our world lies dormant in the depths: the geothermal energy. There are no other countries that abound in this cleanest and most advanced energy source as much as Indonesia. But for opening the treasures chest and utilizing the immense potential, Indonesia needs help. ARCTIC supports the geothermal energy production by participating in the geothermal project in southwest Jakarta of Indonesia. Through geothermal power plant, the demand for fossil fuels is reduced. Every year 100,000 tons of CO² can be saved – an amount for which 2.32611 million tree seedlings would need 10 years.

Hydropower in Taiwan - Hydropower make massive waves

- Clean Energy from hydropower for around 12,000 households
- Annual emission reduction of 36,000 tons of CO²

Sometimes progress and backlog exist next to each other. Taiwan is probably one of the most modern and highly engineered countries in Asia – however, in the field of renewable energy, there is still a lot to catch up. We demonstrate our commitment to the environment by taking part in the hydropower project in Tainan, in south-west Taiwan. The hydro station make use of the free falling water from the water reservoirs and convert into electricity, generating 42,000 MW of power for around 12,000 households. The annual emission reduction is 36,000 tons of CO² which is equivalent to the carbon sequestration of 837,400 tree seedlings for 10 years.

Year 2012 - Hydro Power and Wind Power

As a Swiss company, we are keen to share the Swiss culture of clean power generation by Hydropower. "Hydroelectric power accounts for about 56% of Switzerland's electricity production." ARCTIC is delighted to support a Hydropower energy generation project in South-West China. The hydro plants operate without dam and convert the force of water flowing through a penstock over a natural height difference into electrical energy. The emission reductions result from the replacement of other power generation methods in such as carbon intensive coal power. The achievement shows an annual CO² reduction of 700,000 t CO², which is equivalent to the carbon sequestration of 16,282,802 tree seedlings for 10 years.

The use of wind power for renewable energy is increasing at an annual rate of 20%. We are thrilled to make an involvement in another project located in the windy Northwest of Hebei province, Northern China. The project consists of 33 wind turbines, each with a power output of 1500 kW. The total power capacity of the windfarm is about 50 MW and the net supplied power to the grid is 115,000 MWh per year. The project contributes an annual reduction of 120,000t CO², which is equivalent to the carbon sequestration of 2,791,338 tree seedlings for 10 years.

Year 2011 - Landfill Gas Recovery Project

In year 2011, we engaged in a project captures methane emissions from a landfill and regenerate electricity in the region of Jiangsu Province in China. Methane is a greenhouse gas 25-times more powerful than CO². As a result, the project contributed an annual reduction of 134,000 tons CO&sup, which is equivalent to the carbon sequestration of 3,116,994 tree seedlings for 10 years.

Year 2011 - Community Initiates

Community Initiates

In 2011, ARCTIC volunteered to support a non-profit organization. For that, we hosted a branding event in Hong Kong and raised funds for the charity 'Habitat for Humanity International'. The project helps rebuild homes for people in need around the world.
