Zotos International is proud to be an EPA Green Power Partner. The company generated approximately 3,800,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of on-site wind energy this year at its manufacturing plant in Geneva, New York. The company has capacity to generate approximately 5,500,000 kWh, however one of its wind turbines experienced maintenance issues this past year. Zotos' sustainability initiatives have been driven by consumer demand for green products, a desire to increase operational efficiencies and reduce costs, as well as a moral imperative, as a beauty company, to create a more beautiful planet. Among the biggest benefits, and a major lesson learned, is how the company's commitment to sustainability drives innovation, both within Zotos and within its supply chain, enabling all parties to become more globally competitive. As a result, Zotos has increased efficiencies, reduced costs, and created new jobs at its US manufacturing plant.
"Our initiatives have transformed Zotos into one of the fastest-growing and greenest manufacturers in the global beauty industry," Zotos Chief Sustainability Officer Anthony Perdigao said. "More consumers are demanding sustainable products, and as a beauty company, we have a moral imperative to meet this demand. All of us want a healthier and more beautiful planet, and we're proud to do our part."
