Environmental objectives

K 2181-3A
Every year we set new reduction targets for environmental impact, energy consumption and the volume of plastic waste produced, and we are always working to reuse as much left-over material from production as possible.

One-year environmental objectives for 2011

• CO2 equivalents (GHG) to be reduced to 210 kg per tonne of raw materials consumed.
• Maximum electricity consumption of 1.6 kWh per kg of sold finished goods.
• Reduce plastic waste to 1.3 per cent of consumption of plastic raw materials.
• 60 per cent of plastic waste used in the recovery industry.
• 50 per cent of total waste disposed of for recycling or for the recovery industry.
• Implement proposals from employees which have payback times of less than 4 years.


Five-year environmental objectives to 2013

• We will achieve a general weight reduction (downguaging) of produced items of 30 per cent.
• We will challenge suppliers to reduce their energy consumption by 20 per cent.
• We will be supplied by 100 per cent renewable energy i.e. hydro electric power and wind power.
• We will have the lowest CO2 emissions (carbon footprint) in the plastics packaging industry.
• We will encourage the collection and recycling of all plastic packaging on all the markets in which we are represented.
• We will reuse materials where this is technically possible, financially cost-effective and where the high safety of our products is retained.

The future is simple

Our idea of packaging for the future is that it must be simple in design with the least possible environmental impact.

Nature sets the standard

The worldwide phenomenon of Cradle to Cradle focuses on products that can enter into more than one life cycle. And this can certainly include plastic.
