Sustainability

THE ULTIMATE ENVIRONMENTAL SOLUTION

At Detpak, we champion recycling as the ultimate environmental solution for single-use packaging, innovating to enable our products to live again as part of a circular economy.

Moving from a Linear Economy to a Circular Economy

Currently we operate using a linear model of waste disposal. We take, make, use and dispose of resources - giving them only one life before they are sent to landfill. Moving to a circular economy is about designing out waste and pollution by keeping resources at their highest value for as long as possible.

For single-use packaging, we champion recycling as the best end of life option to ensure valuable resources live again, contributing to a circular economy.

The Waste Hierarchy

The waste hierarchy is an internationally accepted set of priorities for the efficient use of resources.

Underpinning waste avoidance and resource recovery related legislation, this guide establishes the most favourable to least favourable actions related to materials. 

While we know reducing or reusing resources is best for the environment, we strongly believe in championing recycling as the best option for single-use packaging.
