Smurfit Kappa Group

Our industry is very energy intensive, so steam quality and efficiency are critical elements in our drive for better cost control and quality assurance. We are happy that average savings of above 14% were realised at the plants and that our production reliability has also benefited from the enhancements to steam processes introduced in five of our facilities in Ireland and the UK.

Steam Esco and Vertis Environmental Finance announced on 12 October 2015 that Vertis has made an investment into Steam Esco. Focused on emissions trading since 2001, Vertis was one of the first companies in the world to be involved in the carbon markets. Vertis will also act as sales agent for Steam Esco and will offer Steam Esco’s products to industrial clients across Europe and beyond.


Keith Moore, CEO of Steam Esco, said: “We are excited to team up with Vertis and work with their sales team to sell our products into new markets in Europe.”

“For Vertis this is a great opportunity to diversify and get back to helping our clients reduce their fossil fuel dependency and cut greenhouse gas emissions,” said James Atkins, Chairman of Vertis.
