Charpak Sustainability


Corporate responsibility and sustainability of packaging is core to our business. 

For over 10 years Charpak has been working with DEFRA, the Government and Trade Bodies. End of life considerations during the design and production process include closed loop recycling or secondary home use.  You can view or download our Environmental Policy here.

Charpak use recycled plastics for the vast majority of products we manufacture. Charpak's ethos includes minimising the environmental impact of plastics.

We see packaging reduction as positive for our business. Using recycled and recyclable material is more sustainable both in terms of carbon footprint and for the environment.

As part of Charpak's commitment to sustainability skeletal waste is granulated to minimise wastage and environment impact.

Packaging has a vital role to play in all of our lives. Packaging sells product.  Packaging protects product and most vitally in an era where  £8,000,000,000 of food is thrown away every year, when designed correctly plastic packaging prolongs the shelf life of a product. This also allows our clients to put less additives in the manufacture of their products.

FACT:  The energy cost of producing a tonne of recycled rPET is one third the recycling cost of a tonne of Carton Board. Recycling plastics also saves fossil fuels used as a raw material with the attendant carbon saving.
