Our Sustainability Strategic Pillars

Our Sustainability Strategic Pillars

Sustainability at Coveris is all about delivering packaging that works to minimise the downsides and maximise the benefits for everyone.

Reuse

Reuse

Increase the use of post-customer recycled (PCR) content on our films.

At our European Coveris sites, we make a commitment to secure PCR sources. Thanks to the adaption of our extruders, we have developed a range of PCR shrink film products while scrupulously respecting health and safety rules.

Reduce

Reduce

Packaging unit weight reduction.

Design products sustainably to reduce weight and therefore the environmental impact by guaranteeing the mechanical properties of the film.

Redesign

Redesign

Rethink the development of packaging solutions for suitable purpose.

Design eco-friendly packaging with the most advanced extrusion technology for mono-materials.

Sustainable Leadership

Extending our environmental responsibility beyond our products, their resources and end-of-life function, we engage in sustainable business leadership across the entire value-chain.  

High Performance Packaging

  • Protection/enhancing shelf life (barrier properties for less product and food waste)
  • Reduced emissions (through production and supply chain optimisation)
  • Next life (material can be reused or recycled)
  • Post-consumer waste reintegration

Materials

  • Renewable materials (verified, compostable or bio-based)
  • Recycling-friendly materials (recycle without compromising quality or safety)
  • Material optimisation (less use of material, better recyclability)

Sustainability in Production

  • Optimisation of resources / lower emissions (heating/cooling of plants, light concepts)
  • Striving for zero waste concept (regranulation, recycling, reuse of material)
  • Green energy concepts

Engagement

  • Active member in associations such as CEFLEX | Plastic Pact UK
  • Cooperation with Universities and waste management companies (ARA, Bonus, ADEME)
