Swisspack will update customers with the data on their packs’ carbon emissions as per the calculated Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) and what they are doing to mitigate this.
Swisspack has published an eco-guide on their website.
They also plan to hold sustainable packaging webinars to share insights with other businesses about what they’ve learnt from their product LCA and how materials can be used more efficiently.
Premises / The Office
Swisspack will begin to implement a cycle-to-work scheme and explore rainwater harvesting solutions for their day-to-day operations.
Waste and Recycling
Swiss Pack will implement office recycling procedures.
They will manage their disposal system to encourage responsible waste disposal.
Swiss Pack is already in negotiations with Endole to provide a waste collection point for their products.
Swiss Pack will continue to work towards an Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) policy approach. This policy will provide an incentive to make better, more sustainable decisions at the product design stage including decisions that make it easier for products to be re-used or recycled at their end of life.
Swisspack will work with their customers and suppliers to increase the amount of recycling in their product ranges.
They will also release a fully recyclable flexible packaging range.
