Nordzucker Post 01/2021 - 28 January 2021
Sustainable use of packaging material
With the Nordzucker Sustainable Packaging Policy adopted at the end of 2020, Nordzucker acknowledges its responsibility to reduce the environmental impact of its own packaging.
When packaging is necessary, we believe in having the lowest footprint possible, while making sure that the product is safe from contamination and with limited food waste. The policy aims to eliminate unnecessary packaging and source packaging materials with the greatest possible consideration of social and environmental impact. As Nordzucker, we are committed to the principles of prevention, reduction, reuse and recycling.
To support our sustainable packaging principles, we also work with our suppliers and business partners in this regard. Full recyclability of all our plastic packaging must be achieved by 2030, although we are already aiming for this target in 2025. Our primary and secondary paper packaging for consumer goods should be 100% sustainably sourced by 2025, e.g. as FSC certified.
