Seda UK, which specialises in food packaging, plans to save £170,000 a year on bills from energy suppliers by using efficient light bulbs, reports packagingnews.co.uk.
The firm has received a £90,000 loan from environmental agency the Carbon Trust and has used the money to install 750 energy-saving light bulbs that could also help the company save 1,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide every year.
In addition, the company will be heating its factory by re-routing energy that has passed through compressors, while non-essential electrical devices will be turned off at weekends.
Lorenzo Angelucci, managing director of the company, said the industry is performing well in the current economic climate, but that Seda is nonetheless intent on doing its bit to both reduce emissions caused by excessive use of electrical equipment and cut down on business costs.
Energy-saving light bulbs are one of the highest-profile ways of pursuing more efficient lighting as they use less power and last much longer than traditional bulbs.
The UK's major energy companies have sought to help promote efficiency by sending out free efficient light bulbs.
