Twinplast is totally committed to minimising waste and helping our customers to do the same.  It is imperative that we do all that we can to prevent pollution and encourage re-use and recycling.

Polypropylene has a far lower carbon footprint when compared to cardboard which is more harmful to the environment when recycled, and contributes to deforestation.

All our raw corrugated polypropylene, which is considered to be the most environmentally friendly plastic currently available, is carefully stored prior to manufacture. Once manufactured, any excess raw material is automatically recycled through our own internal process waste technology.   

Our corrugated polypropylene solutions are reusable, and can be recycled through normal recycling channels. Twinplast board is also photo degradable.

Our environmental policy sets out our goals on how we are committed to minimising any environmental impact:

it is our policy to:

  • Integrate environmental issues into our commercial decision making
  • Openly and honestly communicate externally and internally our company’s environmental performance, and to make this Policy Statement available to customers, suppliers, contractors, regulators and the general public on request.
  • Comply with, and where possible exceed the requirements of relevant environmental legislation, regulations and international agreements.
  • Conserve natural resources by minimising raw material and energy use in the selling, transport, storage and distribution processes and other company activities, and to encourage recycling whenever possible.
  • Continually improve environmental performance and the prevention of pollution by implementing an environmental management system which assigns responsibilities to all staff.
  • Set and periodically review our environmental objectives and targets.
  • Provide staff training to improve awareness of any significant environmental aspects and our company environmental policy.
  • Undertake regular management review and revision of the environmental policy.
