We take our responsibility seriously
Initiatives to promote circular food packaging
Environmental sustainability is important to our world and future, and at Faerch we take our responsibility seriously. A sustainability focus has been embedded in everything we do for years: in our corporate strategy, daily operations, and priorities. We work with partners across our industry to promote and accelerate circular food packaging. Together, we address environmental challenges to responsibly manage our planet’s resources.
We recognise that requirements across different packaging categories may differ widely. While we, as a rigid food-packaging supplier can promote true circularity by choosing the right material, pursuing our overriding goal of food safety and reducing food waste, packaging suppliers in other segments may face different challenges, forcing them to reign in their ambitions.
We support bold joint commitments within the packaging industry as a whole combined with ambitious company-specific targets, while also taking opportunities and reasonable restrictions into account. This benefits us all. A good example of this type of commitment is Faerch’s goal of setting a new industry standard. Faerch is working for full transparency by offering third-party validation of the post-consumer and pre-consumer content (rPET) of our recipes according to ISO definitions. Our aim is to set a new industry standard allowing customers and consumers to identify and distinguish the real sustainability level of a food packaging product.
