Blue by nature, green at heart


100% recycled paper

At BAC we aim to make all our processes as environmentally friendly as possible. This time the Communications Department brought a sustainable change to our attention. Our product overview brochure was in need of a make-over. Not only did the lay-out change, but we now print this brochure on 100% recycled paper! By selecting Cocoon Gloss for the printing of this brochure in 13 languages our environmental impact was greatly reduced, compared to non-recycled paper.

Our BAC internal personnel magazine from the BAC Belgium employees (BAC SamenGevat) is also printed on 100% recycled paper (Cyclus Offset) from now on. This too contributes to reducing our environmental footprint.

Nice to notice:
In the image you can see a well-know panda logo. The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) supports the paper producer in the promotion of a circular economy of paper.


BAC brings clean safe water to children of Kyeni Primary School.

We are pleased to announce that the Just a Drop project for the 303 children of the Kyeni Primary school in Kenya makes very good progress. The rain water tank is ready and the children are so happy with it. Access to safe water all year long, makes a big difference in these children’s daily life. Now the hygiene education can start.
At BAC we believe that water is at the core of sustainable development and cooling.


Fundraising activities for Just a Drop projects

The Just a Drop projects in India and Kenya supported by BAC are making good progress. In the Kyeni Primary school they finished with the construction of the rain harvesting tank. In Kudo they drilled the community borehole and provided the water storage tank of 40.000 liters. They started with the construction of a check dam, which will reduce the risk of the water supply going dry during upcoming droughts. So-called WASH trainings are ongoing with regard to water, sanitation and hygiene.

All BAC employees around the world are organizing fundraising activities to fund all the needed works for our 3 selected Just a Drop projects: Kyeni Primary School (Kenya), Kudo Village (India) and El Roblar (Nicaragua). Very creative activities to raise money are popping up in our BAC factories and offices: Car wash, raffles, World Cup bidding, second-hand sales, selling of water bottles and sustainable vegetable /fruit bags, fund raising dinners supported by local restaurant, donations,…

At BAC we are all committed to contributing to the availability of clean and safe water to communities worldwide. As a leading company in the development of evaporative cooling products, we believe that water is at the core of sustainable cooling and development.
