Systems provider launches online sustainability resource

AUTOMATED Packaging Systems has announced the launch of an online sustainability hub to help customers become more environmentally aware.

Visitors can access information around the benefits of using plastic packaging, recycling labelling and signage, and learn about eco-friendly products.

The resource features three key areas:

• Information about what Automated Packaging Systems is doing to ensure its products have minimal impact on the environment

• Key sustainable considerations when choosing packaging processes and materials

• A section which provides information on how to be more environmentally conscious

Andy Pretious, UK sales and marketing manager for Automated Packaging Systems said, “Plastic is still integral to the plans of many big businesses and it’s difficult to disregard as it’s a high-quality, durable packaging option. There are lots of environmentally-friendly options available that make plastic a viable packaging option, such as our GeoTech range which is manufactured using up to 95% pre-consumer recycled content.

“As a company, we are dedicated to driving sustainable change, reducing plastic waste and educating customers and the wider public on the actions they can take to work towards a more environmentally-friendly future. Our latest figures have shown an impressive reduction in the amount of waste we have produced over the past few years. This has been a direct result of changing our manufacturing processes to reduce waste and the team proactively implementing various recycling processes throughout the business.”
