Value Creation Examples

VPET

Contributing Source: 2023 ESG Report

The VPET team collaborated with Graham’s ESG team to analyze energy consumption patterns down to 15-minute intervals, identifying peak times and shifting energy-intensive processes to off-peak periods when electricity is 30-35% cheaper. At VPET’s Valencia, CA plant, smarter practices and increased use of solar panels reduced energy consumption by 14% per pound of product in 2023. Additionally, VPET's Fontana, CA plant joined the Base Interruptible Program (BIP), curbing energy use when requested by the utility, saving approximately $168,000 annually. Combined with other measures and new power rates, VPET's total electricity savings for 2023 reached $286,000.

EasyPak

Contributing Source: 2023 ESG Report

In 2023, EasyPak focused on reducing scrap waste in its production process, leading to fewer tons of plastic in landfills and lower greenhouse gas emissions. These efforts also cut costs, boosting the company's bottom line. At the Oldsmar, Florida facility, adjusting sheet width and index to match the machine's layout reduced scrap by 2-7%, saving over $12,000 in 2023. Switching polypropylene vendors for one line of food packaging improved material consistency and reduced scrap by 10-15%, saving over $120,000 in 2022-2023. Replacing machine components and adjusting artwork location on sheets reduced scrap by more than 15%, saving over $200,000 in 2022-2023.
