RECYCLING – CREATE A CIRCULAR ECONOMY
Most of our products will be recyclable before 2025. We already have a lot of recyclable products in our portfolio today. 
Examples:
PE-based skin films/shrink films
PP-based rigid films
OPP lidding films and flowpacks
To optimise the cycle of potentially recyclable resources, we rely on flexible films consisting of mono materials and polyolefins while also researching materials that allow for even better recycling.
REPLACE – DEVELOPMENT OF NEW MATERIALS
Our goal: to replace all non-sustainable materials with sustainable materials.
Examples:
Existing materials are replaced by innovative solutions such as DanaFibre, SuperThin and recyclable materials
Flowpacks and stand-up pouches, or thermoforming solutions, replace conventional packages
REDUCTION – ULTRA-THIN AND LIGHTWEIGHT FILMS
Innovative research and development are the basis for thinner, light-weight films – with constantly high quality and functionality.
Example:
SuperThin currently is the thinnest laminate film world-wide
Using our ultra-thin laminates, we reduce the amount of resources required for storage and transportation as well as the consumption of energy and the generation of carbon dioxide along the entire value chain.
RENEWAL – KEEP BALANCE
We focus on resource-saving and renewable raw materials.
We use e.g. FSC-certified paper, increasingly replacing fossil fuels with renewable alternatives.
Our portfolio: paper, waxed paper, PE from renewable resources (bioethanol), DanaFibre, as well as starch-based films.
RESPONSIBILITY – SOCIETY, ENVIRONMENT, AND ECONOMY
We are committed to a responsible usage of raw materials – across all levels, at all our sites, from office lighting to the reduction of production waste.
 
Society: We cooperate with social initiatives, scientific institutions, universities, communities, public authorities, and government organisations. We respect human rights and condemn child labour.
Environment: Our target is the permanent reduction of raw material consumption. This covers both our products and our production. We therefore optimise our processes and procedures. On top of that, we increasingly use recyclable materials.
Economy: We strive for long-term, sustainable partnerships with our customers and suppliers.
