The future of packaging is circular
The earth gives us energy, food and water. It is a source of life that should be handled with care. We believe in the power of our circular packaging solutions and are committed to contributing to a cleaner world that is geared to the future, with as much respect for people and the environment as possible. That is the foundation of our DNA.
Sustainable packaging solutions
Attention and respect for people and the environment are in our DNA. The logo symbolizes our sustainable packaging solutions. It is important to us that the raw materials used for our packaging retain their value and continue to circulate in the packaging economy. The recycled fibers are the main raw material for our solid cardboard packaging, which is then 100% recyclable into renewable raw material. Smart Packaging Solutions wants to use this logo to emphasize how sustainable our packaging is. Are you looking for a sustainable alternative?
We are FSC certified
Only recycled fibers or fibers of known and safe origin are used in all our packaging solutions, which are 100% recyclable. Only certified raw materials are procured that are certified and that we have certified ourselves under FSC®-C109033. This means that each tree comes from expertly managed forests and 3 or 4 new trees are planted for every tree that is felled. This enables us to reduce the environmental impact of our activities and products even more to a minimum.
Circular packaging equals collaboration
The step to a circular packaging economy is one we must make together. We want to facilitate and support this as far as we can, based on long-term partnerships. That is why sustainability is also reflected in the long-term relationships with our customers, suppliers and stakeholders. Involvement, flexibility and excellent service are at the heart of this. Together we make it green
Minimal ecological footprint
Smart Packaging Solutions has joined the Energiebeleidsovereenkomst (Energy Policy Agreement (EBO)). To minimize our ecological footprint, we work on the basis of an energy plan. This includes measures to use energy as efficiently as possible. For example, we use a lot of the energy we generate ourselves and we invest in sustainable production machines with more efficient motors. A report is produced annually on the impact of these measures on the environment.
Sustainability performance in cooperation with VPK Group
Sustainability is central to the company goals for the entire VPK Group. Together, we produce 1 million tons of high-quality paper annually from strictly recycled fibers. We are continuously working on making our production process more sustainable. Currently, over 23% of the heat and 24% of the energy required are from renewable sources. This is equivalent to the consumption of nearly 20,000 households. We have reduced our carbon footprint by 24%. Beyond that, we are actively working to achieve a number of United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Read more about the VPK Group its activities here.
