Sustainable Packaging and its Impact on the Environment

Sustainable Packaging and its Impact on the Environment

Changing how a product is packaged can reduce CO2 emissions.

Sustainability is about taking small steps to achieve the larger goal of reducing emissions that adversely impact the environment.

Changes such as how a product is packaged can add up to significant reductions in material usage as well as CO2 emissions. Collectively, if we commit to the small steps, we can have a significant impact on the global environment.

A notable example of sustainability in action is Continental’s Timing Belt Kit program and the reduction of paper used to print installation instructions that went into each of its kits.

Detecting Leaks in AC Systems

A vehicle’s air-conditioning system operates in a closed loop, meaning that the refrigerant recirculates on a constant path through the same components to cool the car. 

If the system is functioning as it was designed, there shouldn’t be anywhere for the refrigerant to escape. So, if the A/C system isn’t cooling the car, it’s a clear indication that there’s a problem – most likely a refrigerant leak.
