Environmental


Graphic Packaging International aims to be a leader in the production of sustainable cartons, leaflets and labels produced for the packaging industry. We work hard to improve environmental responsibility across the supply chain.

Environmental Awareness


Graphic Packaging International is a member of Sedex, the Supplier Ethical Data Exchange. This is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to driving improvements in responsible and ethical business practices in global supply chains.

Environmental Policy


Wherever possible, Graphic Packaging International works to eliminate waste and emissions and reduce energy consumption. We comply with all applicable environmental legislation.

Waste Management


Our Bardon team is currently aiming for zero waste to landfill by 2014 by working with SAICA - a recycling company that converts landfill waste to energy.

Carbon Footprint


Graphic Packaging International carefully monitors manufacturing processes and invests in its fleet of delivery vehicles to reduce carbon emissions across the supply chain.

All Graphic Packaging International sites are accredited with the Environmental Quality Standard ISO 14001. Our Leicester site was the first carton business in the country to eliminate benzophenone from inks and varnishes, and the company has taken significant steps to reduce the amount of alcohol used in press fount solutions. Energy monitoring equipment has been installed on the presses to increase efficiency.

With certification for the provision of FSC® and PEFC carton board stock, Graphic Packaging International is helping to increase the use of resources from responsibly managed forests for packaging production. FSC and PEFC are international associations that promote responsible forestry by providing proof that finished products contain wood that has been gathered from responsibly managed sources, as well as recycled fibre and controlled wood. Customers can carry this message through to the end user by having the appropriate FSC or PEFC logo reproduced on the packaging itself.
