Stretchband Packaging Limited is dedicated to being vigilant on our impact to the environment.

All our polymers are lightweight, durable, low carbon and recyclable. Only 4% of global oil production is used for plastics and it is estimated that packaging accounts for only 1.5% of oil and gas use.

Stretchband Packaging Limited is committed to leading the industry in minimising the impact of its activities on the environment.

The key points of its strategy to achieve this are:

  • Minimise waste by evaluating operations and ensuring they are as efficient as possible.

  • Minimise toxic emissions through the selection and use of its fleet and the source of its power requirement.

  • Actively promote recycling both internally and amongst its customers and suppliers.

  • Source and promote a product range to minimise the environmental impact of both production and distribution.

  • Meet or exceed all the environmental legislation that relates to the Company.

  • Use an accredited program to offset the greenhouse gas emissions generated by our activities.

Stretchband Packaging Limited accepts responsibility for the harmful effects its operations have on both the local and global environment and is committed to reducing them and will measure its impact on the environment and set targets for ongoing improvement. The Company will implement a training program for its staff to raise awareness of environmental issues and enlist their support in improving the Company's performance. Stretchband Packaging Limited will encourage the adoption of similar principles by its suppliers.
