Colpac has always been committed to mitigating its environmental impact.
To achieve certification, the Colpac team has driven internal initiatives to effectively evidence how we have reduced our environmental footprint and identified clear objectives to monitor the impact of our activities and products on the environment and to continually improve our environmental performance.
Frances Dickman, Colpac’s Compliance and QA Manager said “As a Company that designs and manufactures food packaging that possess green credentials (recyclable materials, utilisation of recycled and compostable materials for example) it is essential that we practice what we preach and demonstrate our commitment to managing and reducing the impact our business processes have on the environment. This certification joins our ISO 9001 and OHSAS 18001 certifications creating an integrated business management system to improve all aspects of our business on an ongoing basis”.
Colpac has continually strived to minimise the environmental impact of our operations on both the local and wider environment. Our packaging solutions are under constant review to utilise the latest developments in sustainable materials and our messaging conveys the importance of commitment to recycling and composting to dispose of food-on-the-go packaging.
Frances concluded “We will build on the foundations of this certification to further improve our systems and processes so that our customers can rest assured that we will continue to be responsive to environmental issues and involved in driving change to influence behaviours and systems to support a sustainable future”.
ISO 14001 is the international standard that sets out the requirements of an effective Environmental Management System (EMS). This provides a framework to manage the environmental impacts of an organisation’s products, services and processes.
