From Noruto, the automotive maintenance and integral equipment chain, launches “Green Week” from May 15 to May 21, through special discounts, with the aim of promoting more sustainable mobility. The campaign coincides with World Recycling Day, which is celebrated on 17 May.
The banner promotes the correct management of products such as tyres, which can have multiple lives. However, if they are not recycled properly and are instead incinerated, they can cause serious health problems and pollute the environment (a single tire can take up to 1,000 years to decompose). For this reason, at NORUTO they have recycled more than 6,000 tons of tires during the year 2022, thus avoiding 5,724 tons of CO2 emissions.
Car oil is another highly polluting product. Very harmful if it spills on land, rivers and sea, it can be taken advantage of and used to manufacture lubricant bases, additives, materials for asphalt or derivatives. The company has recycled more than 700 tons of oil, avoiding 630 tons of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere.
Same goes for the battery. Its average duration is between 3 and 5 years, but it varies depending on factors such as driving or extreme temperatures. NORUTO has recycled over 3,000 tonnes of batteries and avoided 739 tonnes of CO2 emissions. Similarly, 82 tonnes of filters have been recycled.
At Norauto, they want all users to be able to give a second life to these and other elements of the vehicle, especially if they take care of their maintenance and tuning from home. For this reason, it is adding special containers open to the public at its 90 AutoCenters to make recycling available to all. Specifically, they can recycle batteries, light bulbs, batteries, and electronic components.
On the occasion of its status “Motorist and Responsible” under SDG 13 (Climate Action), Noruto aims to reduce the carbon footprint by 30% and reduce the company’s energy consumption by 20% in 2025, promoting the use of renewable energy to promote. , It also wants to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. For this reason, solar panels are being installed in all auto centers.
