Co-creating sustainable solutions
Driving sustainability is crucial to future proofing the industry. At the same time, the developments in sustainability are moving fast and it is a complex landscape.
We, as Oerlemans Packaging Group, are actively involved as a knowledge partner in various management positions both within and outside our industry. With significant investments in R&D and our production facilities we show that we take our slogan ‘The sustainable innovator’ seriously. How do we do it? By consciously focusing on six focus areas. This way we bring sustainable plastic packaging and film solutions closer step by step. We are proud that we have summarized our sustainability policy in a special brochure.

Sustainable development is development that connects with the needs of today without endangering the ability of future generations to meet their own needs, according to the definition of the UN Brundtland commission in 1987. Sustainable entrepreneurship actually has an environmental background.
With the introduction of iso 14001, the environmental management system, Oerlemans Plastics shows that it wishes to devote a great deal of attention to the environment. We are aware that there is a connection between our activities and the burden on the environment. This is why we wish to take the effort to limit this burden as much as possible.Within the companies of Oerlemans Packaging we all use renewable energy.
An important part of ISO 14001 is compliance with laws and regulations. This means that we work in accordance with permit regulations. Several examples of this are that we make effective use of our raw materials and energy. This is constantly monitored and action is taken where necessary. An annual report is drawn up on all environmental issues. We strive to minimise the use of environmentally unfriendly substances as much as possible. The safety standards for these substances are also followed meticulously.
Oerlemans Plastics has been ISO 14001 certified since 2007.
