LDA Audio Tech removes plastic from all packaging

LDA Audio Tech removes plastic from all packaging
LDA Audio Tech has removed all plastic from its packaging to help reduce its carbon footprint.

LDA Audio Tech took the decision after reviewing its packaging in its factory in Málaga, Spain.

Plastic has been eliminated in all its variants, traditional adhesive tape has been replaced by paper tape and the internal foam moulds by others are now made of paper pulp. By switching to biodegradable, toxic-free and 100% recyclable materials it significantly reduces the environmental impact.

Packing has also been reduced in size by 25% and in weight by 15%. Combined with the elimination of plastic, this reduces the carbon footprint of LDA Audio Tech’s logistics activity, as transport is more cost-effective and efficient.

Cost savings are also increased by the fact that this new packing is not affected by the environmental tax for non-reusable plastics that came into force in January 2023 in Spain.

Finally, the printed documentation accompanying LDA products is eliminated and replaced by its digital version. This will save around 2.5 tonnes of paper each year, as well as reduce the associated energy, printing consumables and logistics.

In 2020, the company installed solar panels, which enabled 80% of the energy used in manufacturing its products to come from clean sources. The installation is now being expanded to generate more kilowatts and further increase self-consumption.
