Our Consulting Services Regarding Sustainability
Are you interested in sustainable packaging for your product?
We advise you on all topics regarding sustainability: the current market situation, the latest technical developments and on technical feasibility.
Today, there are numerous approaches to creating sustainable packagings – ranging from selecting and reducing material or using recyclate to leaving a carbon neutral footprint. With the complex range of options available, we are able to give you sound advice on how your product packagings can meet your sustainability objectives while still complying with your product’s technical or chemical requirements. Are you aiming at achieving an eco certificate? We consult you on “permissible” material and support you in compiling all documents necessary for the application. We even offer you to handle procurement, warehousing and shipment for you – as your one-stop shop.
Most plastics are recyclable and can be re-fed as granules into production during the manufacturing process. When using packaging made of glass, the percentage of PCR shards used also affects its sustainability level. We advise you regarding sustainable mono-material packaging and various recycling materials, e. g. RPET or RHDPE and their potential use as packaging for your product. And we check whether your product is in any case suitable for packaging made from recycled materials.
TREFFPACK and Climate Protection
In order to contribute to global climate protection, we have established our own sustainability team several years ago, which since then has been continuously developing and implementing climate protection strategies for our company – in some cases in cooperation with external partners.
These strategies include calculating our company’s CO2 emissions as well as the financially supporting climate protection projects aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
In 2015, the UN agreed to adopt 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with the mission statement to ensure decent living conditions worldwide and preserve natural resources.
The wind farm delivers renewable energy to the local power grid, which is otherwise mostly fed with power generated by burning coal. Generating clean and renewable wind power reduces air pollution and, according to ClimatePartner, has created 27 permanent jobs with wages and benefits above the local average.
“Money for plastic” is Plastic Bank’s approach to marine conservation. Lacking infrastructure, in particular developing countries often have large amounts of not properly disposed plastic waste. The Plastic Bank project steps up to avoid this waste being disposed of directly from entering the ocean. The plastic collected is recycled into “Social Plastic®” which is reintegrated into the production cycle for packagings.
At the same time, this project provides employment opportunities – according to Climate Partner, 2,300 new jobs have been created in the poorest countries of the world so far. Members receive a fair and stable income, the collected plastic can be exchanged for money or other benefits like e. g. food, drinking water or payment of school fees.
