Sustainable development is development that connects with the needs of today without endangering the capacity of future generations to fulfil their needs, according to the definitions of the UN Brundtland commission in 1987. Sustainable business actually has an environmental background.
Fardem Packaging is also aware of the environmental consequences of the production of plastic. The OPACK group’s own regeneration line is used to recycle the unprinted film and convert it back into polyethylene granules. These granules are then used to produce more film. So no granules are lost at Oerlemans Packaging, the environmental burden is reduced and this reduces the production costs! Within the companies of Oerlemans Packaging we all use renewable energy.
Fardem Packaging is also certified by EcoVadis. EcoVadis is a cooperation of leading companies which give sustainability high priority.
