Beyond these constant efforts to provide a quality product and guarantee the best service to its customers, Distriplast has always been committed to improve its environmental footprint aiming at better sustainability of its activities for the benefit of all stakeholders.
As working on sustainability leads also to consider protecting and preserving high added-value products, equipment or premises, PP corrugated sheets are an effective mean to preserve and protect during transport or industrial operation.
The structure of our Polypropylene-based product guarantees full re-cyclability of the alveolar sheets. Collected and recycled, the reprocessing of corrugated sheets allows material to be re-generated, that can, either be reincorporated into other sheets or used to extrude other PP-based products. Distriplast could propose to its customers a set of advices and audits to establish sorting and reprocessing loops.
Long before the popularization on circular economy concepts, our development policy prioritized the marketing of products incorporating recycled materials.
In 2021, 50% of our product range incorporates recycled materials. Distriplast has the ambition to increase this share to over 80% in the years to come and optimize the recycled content in each of its manufactured products. In 2021, Distriplast footprint will be reduced by about 5000 t CO2eq.
Since 2019, Distriplast commitment in integrating recycled materials has been recognized by the European MORE label (Recycle More).
