Kraft Foods has expanded the deployment of a real-time energy management and carbon reduction solution to all of the manufacturing facilities in its Grocery Business Unit. The decision to roll out xChange Point from EPS Corp., Costa Mesa, Calif., to additional sites was based on the success of its initial implementation in one facility, according to EPS.
Kraft Foods has already cut energy use in its manufacturing plants by 15% and energy-related emissions by 17% through the end of 2009, according to an EPS press release.
The xChange Point solution monitors and curtails energy use and carbon emissions, identifies the most compelling options for achieving target reductions and tracks the results. In addition to delivering in-depth, real-time information through an easy-to-use interface, xChange Point was selected because it includes the expertise of EPS energy analysts and engineers to identify and quantify the most effective sustainability initiatives and develop implementation and verification strategies with Kraft Foods’ internal team.
“Achieving continual reductions in energy use and carbon emissions at our manufacturing facilities is a top strategic priority for Kraft Foods,” said Diane Wolf, Global Vice President, Safety and Environmental Sustainability at Kraft Foods.
