Sustainability, also in your packaging
In the world of fast shopping, sustainability is becoming increasingly important. Not only for customers, but companies are also motivated to contribute their green share. It is after all rewarding to focus on eco-friendly solutions, from packaging to transport.
What makes packaging sustainable?
Sustainability and Europal Packaging
Europal Packaging works according to three rules
- We only process cardboard and paper supplied by suppliers who work with certified raw materials (FSC certification). This way we can ensure that the raw materials are obtained in a sustainable manner, with respect for the preservation of forests.
- Optimisation is the key to more efficiency. For instance, certain packaging can be reused, in some conditions and sectors this can be up to five times. We also combine our orders in such a way that the entire depth of production is used. This way we avoid unnecessary waste during the production process.
- With our biggest customers we focus on reducing the carbon footprint. We always work with jumbo trailers, where we stack up to the maximum height. This way we reduce the number of trips to supply the same amount of goods. At the end of the year the customer can clearly see how this has resulted in fewer trucks and less kilometres and CO2 emission.
In addition, we have been working with an external transport partner for several years. He supplies our goods and returns with his own return freight. We thus prevent these trucks from driving empty and make more efficient use of transport.
The right cardboard for your product
In most cases, cardboard is the alternative to plastic. The strength of our cardboard packaging is the wide range of qualities and the different types of cardboard. This enables us to offer a quality that is just strong enough for its purpose, so no raw materials are wasted and the best cost efficiency is reached.
