Our commitment to sustainability
The reduction of our environmental footprint is an objective we share with our staff, our clients and our suppliers. As parents and responsible members of our communities, the Gelpac team strives to design, manufacture and deliver high quality packaging products that will balance the functional and economic needs of our clients with the stress our products, components and processes create on the environment we are called upon to nurture for the benefit of future generations.
The paper and polyethylene we use to make your paper bags are 100 % recyclable. Furthermore, the technology we use to insert the liner makes it a breeze to separate the polyethylene from the paper. Reaching your own sustainability targets is thus that much easier.
Lastly, Gelpac is proud to comply with the requirements of the Toxics in Packaging Clearinghouse (TPCH), a non-partisan American organization formed in 1992 on the initiative of CONEG (Coalition of Northeastern Governors), whose mission is to promote and enforce the legislation on non-toxic packaging. Key requirements of the legislation are the elimination of the use of mercury, lead, cadmium and hexavalent chromium in the manufacturing of packaging products.
Gelpac, greener than ever
The search for and integration of innovative product components, more energy efficient equipment and waste reduction processes is a key element of our strategic plan. As sustainable development goals will always be moving targets, the issues remain at the forefront of our planning process.
