Milk bottles manufacturer Nampak Plastics has announced it has achieved a key goal of ‘zero waste to landfill’

 

The news follows a company-wide drive to enhance sustainability through recycling and waste management.

The firm manufactures HDPE milk bottles.

According to the firm, as part of Nampak’s focus and commitment on further reducing its environmental impact, ‘Carbon Champions’ were appointed at each of the company’s nine UK sites, with responsibility for ensuring waste recovery and recycling best practice on a day-to-day basis.

Commenting on the achievement, Eric Collins, managing director at Nampak, said: “Sustainability is at the very heart of our business, from our commitment to producing innovative, lightweight packaging to our understanding of how our processes impact on the environment.”

“The receipt of our Zero to Landfill compliance certificate demonstrates a significant step for Nampak and recognises the commitment of all employees in the company towards an environmentally sustainable business.

“At Nampak, we know fit for purpose, commercially sustainable, environmental packaging is achievable and are pleased that, thanks to Infini, we have a product that can enhance the environmental credentials of the market at the same time as we are reducing our own carbon footprint.”
