Design is key to circularity at Plus Pack
Design plays a central role in the development of new products. We produce food packaging solutions in aluminium and plastic and have committed ourselves to develope circular solutions that are made of already recycled materials and materials that are easy to sort and recycle.
Food waste has a bigger impact than you might think…
Food waste is one of the biggest global challenges today. A staggering 1/3 of all food produced is wasted. Not only are people facing food scarcities across the world whilst others have abundant amounts of food, but food production is using excessive resources and copious amounts of CO2.
How do we reduce CO2 emissions in a manufacturing company?
Today’s society requires action to reduce CO2. Therefore, as a manufacturing company we are doing our part in contributing to CO2 reductions. We must work towards the goal of the European Commission to reduce carbon emissions by 55% and the Danish goal of 70% before 2030.
Our new warehouse – built on circular principles
For nearly a year, construction has been underway on our new warehouse building. It has been a long journey and we are so excited now to be able to move into the building. The focus has been on building a warehouse based on circular principles and with recyclable materials and solar energy.
Plus Pack contributes to “Partnership on Plastic in the Retail Sector”
In 2019 Director and Deputy CEO at Plus Pack, Camilla Haustrup Hermansen, was appointed by the government as Chair of the Climate Partnership on Waste, Water and Circular economy (Klimapartnerskab for affald, vand og cirkulære økonomi). Since then, Camilla alongside other Danish retailers in the ‘Partnership on Plastic in the Retail Sector’ have worked in collaboration in order to achieve the partnership goals. These goals aim for Denmark to be leading in circular economies in 2030 and paving the way for climate neutrality in 2050.
Our choices leave footprints on the world
As more and more people seek to become part of a movement that will lead us towards more responsible consumption, smart climate communication which taps into the unresolved needs of consumers, while giving them clear and correct information about the products, is urgently needed.
Climate agreements offer good opportunities for cooperation
A number of Danish municipalities fall behind on waste sorting. However, it is only through targeted work with green and circular transition throughout all of the country's municipalities that we can ensure the right framework for increased, public-private cooperation.
Plastic waste from the retail sector to be recycled
The Danish Minister for the Environment has launched a cooperation with players related to the retail sector. The goal is to prevent plastic waste generated in the sector from ending in incineration plants. Camilla Haustrup Hermansen participates as co-chair of the steering group.
Plus Pack chosen to lead new sprint group in European Plastics Pact
In 2020, the European Plastics Pact was established to accelerate a circular plastics economy in Europe. Today, Plus Pack is active in two of the four working groups and is leading a sprint group to help the pact reach its targets.
How we use the Danish Design Guide
The Danish Plastics Federation has recently released a film about their Design Guide, emphasizing how the guide is being used to design and produce packaging solutions that are easy to recycle. The film was produced at Plus Pack’s headquarters and is part of a large-scale campaign from The Danish Plastics Federation.
We need design to ensure a green future
Every day, millions of products are being designed, developed and manufactured by companies across industries. According to research, minimum 80% of a product’s environmental impact is locked in the design phase, which means that design thinking is crucial to ensuring a green future.
Revolutionizing customization of sustainable packaging solutions
In June we went live with our new digital product configurator that enables customization of sustainable packaging solutions faster and more accurate – improving customers’ time to market and ability to make their food stand out.
Denmark must recycle 80% of all plastic waste in 2030
The Danish government has presented its vision for a green and climate neutral waste sector by 2030 as part of their national climate plan. One of the key initiatives is to streamline national waste sorting and put circular economy in the center of activities
