Cobalt Green

Cobalt Green is our commitment to doing what we can to drive sustainability improvements in our industry.

We're a Carbon Neutral Business

As of June 2022, we have achieved full carbon neutrality across the business, from our day-to-day operations to our delivery processes and event attendance. Cobalt Systems is contributing to a number of CO2 reduction projects around the world; we are also in the process of electrifying our commercial fleet and are actively developing a number of all-electric solutions to help our customers reduce waste.

This drive for improvement is in the wider context of the manufacturing industry as a whole and we’re very proud to be contributing to a more sustainable UK supply chain.

Case Study: North West Food Processor

Cobalt Systems recently installed a Print & Apply labelling automation solution into the North West food processing plant for a multi-national food producer as part of a green scheme to remove plastic packaging and improve environmental factors.

The end-of-line project, which formed part of the packaging area, was part of an upgrade on previously installed hardware. As part of the green scheme, the food producer developed cardboard cartons that can support the weight of heavier goods such as tins and cans. This packaging development reduces shrink wrap but retains the stability of the cans.
