ARCUS: Arcus: Thinner plastic reduces usage by 3.5 tonnes

Better environment, increased efficiency and reduced costs.

- We switch to a thinner plastic for securing goods during transport. By doing
so, we reduce the annual plastic consumption in this process by approx. 40
percent, equivalent to 3.5 tonnes per year, says Raymond Johansen, Project
Manager in the Technical Department at Arcus. The environmental benefit equals
more than 1,000 Oslo residents' recycling of plastic every year.

Arcus has chosen a plastic quality that is much thinner than before, and because
it consists of many thin layers, it ensures the transport of the goods in the
same way as before.

- We save the environment for plastic. Efficiency will increase as we do not
have to change plastic rolls so often. In addition, of course, we save money
because we need less plastic than before, says Johansen.

Arcus is committed to "The Plastic Pledge" launched by Green Dot Norway, a
promise that will contribute to a more circular economy. As part of this, Arcus
has promised to reduce its plastic usage by 30 percent by 2025.
