Sustainability at all stages
All manufacturing has an impact on the environment. Our ambition is to minimise this impact as far as possible at all stages. One alternative to minimise the environmental impact is to use bioplastic. This can be used to manufacture our entire range. Bioplastic is a completely normal plastic, but the raw material is renewable and is manufactured using sugar cane rather than oil. The sugar cane comes from Brazil, and ethanol is extracted and processed to produce ethylene and subsequently polyethylene. Our bioplastic is HDPE (High Density Polyethylene), which has exactly the same properties as regular plastic and is sorted at source and recycled in the same way as other plastic. Our bioplastic supplier has a plantation that is certified in accordance with the Code of Conduct, based on ethical, social and environmental aspects together with an LCA (Life Cycle Cost Analysis).
We also apply that same level of commitment to ensuring our staff are given the opportunities for personal development in a good work environment. At the same time as that, and at all locations, we build trusting relationships with our customers. This is the way we are creating the foundations for greater everyday sustainability. An ambition that we take most seriously.
