Sylvania Plans 10% Emissions Cut, Launches Sustainability Program
Osram Sylvania has launched a global care sustainability initiative which includes a 10 percent reduction in company energy use by 2008.
In addition, the company has set up an online recycling service for customers and says it will eliminate its polyvinylchloride packages by the end of 2008. A new 100 percent recycled paperboard package, called SmartPak, will be used instead of PVC compact fluorescent packaging. For other PVC product packages, the company will transition to plastic materials that it says is suitable for curbside recycling.
