In January 2020, Shayp received the Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label for its innovative technology for analyzing water consumption and detecting water leaks in real-time. Shayp's solution was judged to be both cost-effective and environmentally friendly.
"Shayp, a technology that prevents water leaks and thus saves money, is a perfect example of a solution that conserves one of our vital resources while being economically profitable. For us, it is a matter of course to award it the Solar Impulse Label and to include it in our portfolio of 1,000 solutions. Moreover, by collaborating with the City of Brussels, which is now a partner, Shayp shows how the Solar Impulse Foundation, public authorities and innovative solutions can work together to build a more sustainable world" shared Bertrand Piccard, founder of the Solar Impulse Foundation.
Shayp is committed to the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN
Shayp is committed to SDG 6 and its objectives 6.4 and 6.5. Shayp aims to work with the building managers and owners to eliminate water leakage and related water damage. Eliminating water leakage helps to preserve this precious resource, here and elsewhere. We want to make our cities more resilient to climate change and shortages that we are most likely to face in the near future. Shayp also pays particular attention to other SDGs on which we have an impact, such as circularity, diversity, smart cities, poverty reduction, social inclusion and partnerships.
Water efficiency local production
Shayp assembles and manufactures all its devices in Belgium. Some components that are not manufactured in Belgium inevitably come from other countries or continents, such as the 20 Ah batteries. However, everything is optimised to minimise unnecessary transport to the product's destination. That is why we prioritise manufacturing, assembly and delivery from the same factory in Poperinge, Flanders. Shayp prioritizes local repair partners, not only to guarantee a better response time for our customers but also to avoid extensive travel.
2021: 70% of our expenses are based within an 80 km radius of Shayp's postal address (Brussels).
Recycling of the hardware components
After the device has passed its 10-year autonomy, it is 99% recyclable. For example, a screw system was preferred over a plasturgic weld, which makes it possible to reactivate the unit after 10 to 15 years simply by changing the battery so that it can be operated for several more years.
