Committed to sustainable development and quality products? Yes, but not in just any way! In fact, what is sustainable development? Sustainable development is "development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs", according to a quote from Mrs. Gro Harlem Brundtland, Norwegian Minister of the Environment, at the United Nations World Commission on Environment and Development in 1987. The three components of sustainable development are economic, ecological, and social. Sustainable development is finally an economically efficient, socially equitable and ecologically sustainable development (quotation on sustainable development at the Earth Summit in Rio in 1992).
It is in this context that the world of packaging is evolving and transforming itself to adopt a more sustainable production. The objective is to create a virtuous model for developing eco-responsible products while implementing the new European Commission directives on flexible packaging.
The choice of certified partners and suppliers is part of the quality approach and today plays a role in the eco-responsible process. As a true guarantee of quality and commitment, the certifications held by a company have now become criteria in the choice of our economic partners. These certifications ensure responsible consumption for both manufacturers and consumers.
At BBC CELLPACK Packaging, we have several certifications to assure our customers and consumers that we take care to produce our packaging in a sustainable development approach.
Quality, social, and environmental issues are three important values for our company. For our three production sites in Lauterecken (DE), Langgöns (DE) and Illfurth (FR) we choose and respect our certifications always in connection with these values.
And this also concerns the design of our products! We want them to be of high quality, responsible and sustainable and we develop our new products in accordance with this approach. To be recyclable, our innovations are systematically designed with eco-responsible and/or bio-sourced raw materials. For example, our CELLPouch Fruity, our recyclable stand-up pouches, are certified recyclable by Circpack.Suez.
For us, these are more than standards and certifications, they are a commitment in our daily work as developers of sustainable innovations. Preserving the health of consumers and the planet is a value that is dear to our company. Becoming certified, accepting the challenges and changes for a sustainable future, is one more step towards sustainable packaging.:
Good for the environment,
Good for the customers,
Good for the consumers!
