SUSTAIN

This sustainability pillar drives company-wide procedures and activities with the aim of reducing our environmental impact. It covers complying with global environmental standards, water stewardship, carbon footprint management, as well as efficiency in the use of energy and materials.

OUR COMMITMENT

TO RUNNING A RESPONSIBLE OPERATION

We uphold global standards, and we constantly work to improve our operations. All CANPACK plants are obliged to set internal environmental targets. In 2020, EcoVadis awarded us a silver medal for our social and environmental activities.

TO BETTER WATER STEWARDSHIP

We address water consumption and quality through innovative technology, from advanced water metering systems to waste water treatment stations and water testing. We also run employee awareness programmes, and our community programmes include installing ponds and rainwater wells to facilitate rainwater harvesting.

TO REDUCING OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT

We work to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This includes producing renewable energy through solar panels, purchasing renewable energy at several of our sites and optimising how we use machines. We also run an employee awareness programme on energy conservation.

TO SAVING ENERGY AND MATERIALS

This means improving and upgrading our production processes. Whether that’s using technology which lightweights or downgauges to save materials while maintaining quality, or introducing solar energy and heat recovery systems to save energy. But it also means things like installing LED lights and providing electric car charging spots for our team members.

SUPPORTING THE UN’S SUSTAINABILITY GOALS

We have committed to creating a sustainable business that can play a part in supporting the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. That’s why we’ve aligned our approach to sustainable development with the UN Sustainable Development Goals and identified the following goals to address the most relevant challenges to our business within the SUSTAIN pillar.
