As a flexible packaging manufacturer, we are committed to minimizing our environmental impact and maximizing our social responsibility. We believe that sustainability is not only a goal, but a process that requires continuous improvement and innovation. That is why we strive to have sustainable solutions that meet the needs of our customers and the planet, as well as sustainable processes that optimize our use of resources and reduce our waste and emissions.

Our sustainable process is not only beneficial for our own operations, but also for the businesses that rely on our packaging solutions.

Having a sustainable process is equally as important as providing sustainable solutions

SGP focuses on improving energy efficiency, reducing waste, and general environmental compliance. As an SGP member, we are required to set new and improved sustainability goals every year to maintain our membership. Sustainability best practices from 20 years ago are not the same as today, and tomorrow we need to be doing even better. We’re proud of the goals we’ve set and achieved as part of our SGP membership, and we are excited about what the future holds.

Farnell Packaging is a member of the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). CDP is a not-for-profit charity and runs a global disclosure system that allows companies like ours to measure (and most importantly, be accountable for) our environmental impacts.
Reporting our carbon impact to CDP gives us the opportunity to directly measure the impact we are having on the environment and helps us identify areas where we can still improve.

Research has shown that consumer confusion about how to handle recyclable materials is one of the biggest obstacles to getting more consumer packaging into recycling centers, which is why Farnell Packaging participates in the How2Recycle program. How2Recycle is an improved standardized labeling system that more clearly communicates recycling instructions to the public.

Sustainability aligns with Farnell Packaging’s commitment as a family-owned company to doing the right thing and working for the greater good. My grandparents set the standard when they created Farnell in their home and passed these values on to me when I worked summers as a young boy. For brands providing the essentials of life, we care deeply about matching you with the right packaging to get your products safely into the hands of your customers. Right now, 99% or more of what we make is fully recyclable, and we’re constantly developing new ways to support customers in making more sustainable packaging decisions.
