Our Responsibility to Sustainability

We constantly look to minimise our impact the environment.

Whether it’s reducing the amount of material that we use, to always guaranteeing at least 80% recycled content in our products as well as incorporating a minimum of 30% PCW, to minimising waste and carbon footprint in our factories, we are always working hard towards a full closed loop plastics economy and our 2020 zero to landfill policy.

Product Sustainability
We consider the lifecycle of packaging reviewing sourcing, manufacture and disposal as key considerations. We design for recyclability, a cornerstone in sustainable packaging.

Post Consumer Waste
We comply with and aim to exceed UK and European legislation on recycled content and have a roadmap towards 100% RPET manufacture.

Carbon Footprint
We strive for low impact manufacturing across our operations. We work to optimise the use of raw materials, transport efficiencies and reduce waste sent to landfill.

Manufacturing Sustainability
Strategies include recycled content sourcing, pursuit of energy and logistics efficiencies and safety initiatives that protect the well-being of our employees.

Zero to Landfill Policy
We have sites that have already achieved this, and a target for all our sites to achieve this in 2020.

We are a proud partner member of Operation Clean Sweep®

(OCS) is an international programme designed to prevent the loss of plastic granules (pellets, flakes and powders) during handling by the various entities in the plastics value chain and their release into the environment.

RECOUP

We are proud members of RECOUP who in turn are members of The UK Plastics Pact, which is a unique collaboration bringing together businesses from across the entire plastics value chain. Members and partners are at the forefront of generating a fundamental change in the way we design, produce, use, re-use, dispose and reprocess plastics.
