Molding Your Future With Sustainable Manufacturing

At Sussex IM, we are passionate about our values, employees, molding high-quality products, and producing those high-quality products with a sustainable future in mind. As a leading custom injection molding company, we believe in harnessing the power of innovative plastic solutions to drive positive change and sustainable growth.

Each member of our team works diligently to continuously improve our processes for measuring environmental impacts.  As of one of our Core Values states, “If we can, we will…and then some,” and when it comes to sustainability and finding greener solutions to our manufacturing processes, if we can, we will, and then some.

We invite you to read more about our efforts to drive sustainability in our operations in our 2023 Environmental Executive Summary. The inaugural report provides a year-over-year comparison of Sussex IM’s environmental metrics including emissions, electricity, water, waste and recycling. Also detailed in the report is a summary of various environmental improvement projects we completed in 2022, including:

  • Maintenance on our compressed air system saving 356,000 kWh of electricity, or 154 metric tons of CO2e, annually;
  • Upgrading to LED lighting in our Tool Room and R&D space saving 19,000 kWh of electricity, or 8.3 metric tons of CO2e, annually;
  • Diverting 39,000 pounds of plastic waste from landfills through our plastic regrind recycling program;
  • Repairing and reusing 7,684 wood pallets through our partnership with our supplier, extending the life of over 307,000 pounds of wood, and;
  • Reducing our freshwater consumption through a closed-loop water system.

Going forward, our focus is to build on this foundation and identify more opportunities to strengthen our sustainability program. We plan to further improve the methods by which we collect and monitor our environmental data so we can prioritize environmental projects that will have the most impact. We also plan to publish regular sustainability reports going forward to enhance transparency and accountability for our environmental performance.
