Sustainability

Environmental responsibility of our products

At Plastiroll, responsibility for the environment is something that’s reflected in everything we do. We are committed to continuous improvement of our environmental performance according to ISO 14001 standard. In our production, we use predominantly renewable natural materials such as paperboard, paper and compostable barrier coatings whenever possible. Our biodegradable films are manufactured from GMO-free starch-based raw materials.

By using mainly raw materials based on renewable resources, e.g. starch based raw materials for bio-films, we are able to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

CO2 neutral production of biodegradable films and bags

We constantly revise our production process to minimize production waste and emissions, and we also try to get by with as little energy as possible.

Since our film manufacturing plant was completed in 2010, we have utilized the process energy released in the process to heat up our production facility.

All our biodegradable films and bags are produced solely on wind power. This simple decision reduces our company’s CO2 emissions with over 1,000 tonnes a year, which is roughly the equivalent of around 300 private cars’ annual carbon dioxide emissions.
