Nampak Plastics efforts to reduce the impact of packaging

Our responsibility to the environment

As a major producer of plastics packaging in Europe, we are conscious of our responsibility to the environment and the implications of our products and carbon footprint. This is at the forefront of developing recycled-content HDPE packaging through innovative design. We are also committed to light-weighting our bottles to meet the emphasis on 'greener' packaging.

A great example of this is our recently launched InfiniĀ® HDPE milk bottle, which was specifically designed to be lightweight and have significant advantages over the standard bottle design. In particular, it offers an average 16% weight saving across the range, with specific bottle sizes achieving savings of up to 25%.

We are committed to examining all opportunities where possible to reduce our carbon footprint.

All of our operations conform to the internationally recognised environmental management standard of ISO 14001.
