UPAC Environment & Sustainability Policy

At UPAC, our dedication to environmental sustainability is at the core of everything we do. 

As specialists in plastic packaging solutions, we recognize the profound responsibility we bear toward our planet. Hence, we proudly present our Environment/Sustainability Policy, a roadmap guiding our commitment to environmental stewardship:

Product Responsibility:

  • We prioritise promoting and selling eco-friendly packaging alternatives, including biodegradable and compostable options, in place of traditional plastic bags – subject to suitability of use.
  • We collaborate with suppliers who share our sustainability ethos and actively seek innovative materials and technologies that minimise environmental impact.
  • We engage with our customers to raise awareness about responsible packaging choices, advocating for sustainable alternatives.

Waste Reduction and Recycling:

  • We minimise waste through efficient inventory management practices and eschew overproduction.
  • We champion the principles of reduce, reuse, and recycle among our employees, suppliers, and customers, emphasising proper waste management.
  • We encourage reusable bag usage and support local recycling initiatives through awareness campaigns and partnerships to diminish plastic waste.

Energy and Resource Conservation:

  • We reduce energy consumption by deploying energy-efficient technologies and optimising operational processes while promoting energy-saving behaviours among our employees.
  • We explore renewable energy sourcing and invest in renewable energy projects to shrink our carbon footprint.
  • We promote responsible resource use, such as water and raw materials, by adopting efficient production methods and recycling materials wherever feasible.

Compliance and Regulations:

  • We adhere to all relevant environmental laws, regulations, and industry standards.
  • We continually monitor and assess our environmental performance to ensure compliance and identify areas for enhancement.
  • We communicate transparently with authorities, stakeholders, and the public regarding our environmental practices and progress.

Continuous Improvement:

  • We establish measurable environmental goals and regularly review our performance, implementing necessary actions to enhance our practices.
  • We invest in research and development to embrace new technologies and materials aligning with sustainable packaging solutions.
  • We cultivate a culture of environmental awareness and responsibility by providing training and resources to our employees and promoting their active engagement in sustainability initiatives.

By adhering to this Environment/Sustainability Policy, UPAC strives to lead by example in promoting environmentally responsible practices within the packaging industry. We recognise sustainability as an ongoing journey, continuing to evolve our practices for a greener future for our business and the planet. This policy is communicated to all employees and stakeholders and made publicly accessible through our website and other communication channels.
