Working towards a clean, green sustainable future

7250 Origin Green

Our Pledge:

The products we produce and bottle are born from nature and, at Terra, we have an inherent desire to protect our natural environment. As such environmental sustainability is proudly embedded in our strategy and philosophy and has been part of our culture for many years.

Terra has been a long term verified member and early adopter of Bord Bia's Origin Green sustainability programme which further acknowledges our obligation and commitment to manufacture our products in an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner.

Our Guarantee:

We willingly and proactively comply with all environmental legislation and regulatory requirements.

We will work in conjunction with our customers and suppliers, with the aim of minimising any impact that our production process has on the environment.

 

Environmental Project Examples:

For many years, Terra has identified and invested in a wide range of initiatives that have reduced and will continue to reduce our impact on the environment in which we operate.

Since 2018, examples of demonstrable results include the following:

2018:  

  • Purchased two Mitsubishi  ‘’Air to Water heat pumps’’ which produce our hot water for processing and thus reducing our reliance on fossil fuels . This project alone reduced our oil  consumption by 30 % with a Co2 reduction of 49,520 kg  (when offset against electrical generation emissions)

  • Installed 169  kwh ‘’PV Solar Farm’’ capable of producing 20-25 % of the sites annual  demand and reducing our Co2 by 44,000 to 61,640 kg per year.

2019:

  • Commissioned a bespoke ‘’automated water recovery system’’ capable of capturing cooling water and saving on average of 10,000 litres per week or 0.5m litres per year!

2020:

  • Installed a custom-made stainless steel ‘’heat recovery water tank’’ that allows waste hot air @ 66 degrees to be used to pre-heat our water.

  • Signed supply contract with Calor Gas in conjunction with SHV Energy to supply ‘’Bio-LPG gas’’ and retrofitted our boilers from fossil fuels to renewable gas. This project will deliver a yearly reduction of a staggering 132’000 kg of Co2, a 80% reduction in NOx (nitrogen oxide)  and zero sulphur and particulate emissions when in comparison to oil by the use of sustainably sourced waste oils. What is Calor BioLPG?

  • Installed Phase 2 of our Solar PV farm doubling our production to 339 Kwh, a PV farm  encompassing over 1,100 roof panels thus bringing our own sites annual production to a target of approx 50% of our imported demand ( 240,000 Kwh per year)
