Sustainability Strategies & Solutions
Hi-Tech Packaging understands the life-cycle of packaging. As sustainability specialists, we research and investigate the latest innovations, so we can offer customers retail packaging solutions that reduce environmental impact.
New materials for the Retail sector are assessed against key sustainability criteria with the Hi-Tech Packaging Eco Impact™ analysis tool. We then work strategically with customers, identifying opportunities to make their packaging range more sustainable. Branded re-usable bags are just one example of reducing plastic waste in Retail.
Using the Hi-Tech Packaging Knowledge Base, our Technical Director can compare different products and materials and present retail packaging solutions that meet key performance requirements. These can include cost, and sustainability targets.
Materials such as Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate (RPET) help retailers and consumers to protect the planet by reducing plastic waste. Made from recycled materials, this material is both strong and recyclable – a circular solution.
Hi-Tech Packaging is committed to the goals of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and the Circular Economy for Plastic. We are also FSC® certified (Forestry Stewardship Council®), so our Comply & Conform™ team can ensure the integrity of paper products used in retail packaging solutions across the whole supply-chain.
