The goal of environmental sustainability is to conserve natural resources and to develop alternate sources of power while reducing pollution and harm to the environment. For environmental sustainability, the state of the future – as measured in 50, 100 and 1,000 years is the guiding principle. The biggest criticism of environmental sustainability initiatives is that their priorities can be at odds with the needs of a growing industrialized society.
However, we always believe that there’s no conflict between economic prosperity and environmental stewardship. In fact, the two are actually mutually dependent upon each other. Like many other companies, we embrace sustainability as a key to our economic future, and consider the environment one of our key stakeholders.
We’ve always known there was a better in-the-box packaging option. But for a long time, there weren’t any ecologically sound alternatives that could do an effective job of protecting products. So we have been committed to the development and production of paper packaging or biodegradable material products , which can replace plastic products.
The world produces more than 400 million tons of plastics every year, and only 9% is recycled. People are demanding change, and companies are taking notice.
A new EU-wide strategy on plastics is aiming to achieve a more circular economy. It seeks to address plastic pollution, and to demonstrate the business case for change. The top-level features are as following.
As part of our vision for a more sustainable company and future, we strive to integrate sustainability into our core business activities with the aim of maximising the positive value created by our business for our customers.
