Zip helps Apache North Sea reduce plastic bottle waste from its Aberdeen headquarters

The brief
Apache North Sea

To build a sustainable future, Apache believes it is essential to deliver profitable, long-term growth in a way that protects and enhances the safety and health of its employees, the local communities in which it operates and the environment. With Apache embracing sustainable business practices across its global operations, Apache North Sea in Aberdeen, Scotland installed a Zip HydroChill to support the company’s efforts to reduce single-use plastic waste across its office.

Stephen Duncalf, supply chain manager for Apache North Sea, explains: “We have robust waste management and environmental strategy in place which is designed to engage our workforce and encourage the reduction of waste. In considering how our operations impact the environment, we sought to reduce our single-use plastic waste, which was driven by the purchase of over 12,000 bottles of water in 2018.”
