Sustainable Business Practices
Many of the companies Plastipak conducts business with have taken strong stances on sustainability issues,
some with quite ambitious targets involving energy use, greenhouse gas emissions and waste.
Plastipak introduces the ultimate eco-friendly 'Ökopreform'. Building on its unrivalled recycling expertise as well as its BioPET capability, Plastipak sets a new standard in environmentally friendly PET packaging with preforms & bottles consisting of 75% RPET & 25% BioPET. The RPET as well as the BioPET are produced by Plastipak.
The importance of sustainability is of paramount importance to Plastipak's customer base.
Every day, customers are working to maximize the efficiency of their companies while minimizing
their impact on the environment.
Plastipak, too, strives to restrict any environmental effect its operations have. By putting our
technology to work on this part of the process, we have reduced resin to achieve at least a 33% reduction in package content since 2006.
Plastipak has sustainability programs in place to ensure success at every stage of the manufacturing
process, including energy use, gas emissions and waste. For instance, the company’s recycling center,
Clean Tech, recycles billions of Plastipak bottles annually, reducing plastic waste. Plastipak customers
may take advantage of Clean Tech’s recycling programs.
For more than 20 years, Plastipak has conducted business guided by values which emphasize the sense
of community vital for ongoing sustainability programs. We work diligently with our communities and our
customers to deal with environmental challenges successfully.
