SCROLL DOWN

Sustainable Future – our initiatives.

We truly believe that plastic is the material for the future. But we have to use plastic and we have to develop products made of plastic that is sustainable. Sustainable to us is products that is better than any alternative, in any perspective. We challenge our workforce and our partners, customers and suppliers to develop products that is so well designed and have a minimized footprint.

Bergen Plastics are producing our packaging with hydro power. There is no energy source being more sustainable. We are increasingly using recycled material in our production of special packaging for laundry capsules, and are targeting to have an inclusion level of more than 50% of PCR (post consumer recycled) in all our packaging.

Being located in Norway close to the harbor, we have a very efficient and sustainable logistics, throughout Europe.

Taking responsibility.

European plastic pact

For Bergen Plastics it is as important to be responsible as taking actions. We believe we can change faster and more efficient when working together with partners, customers, governments and organizations that have the same view on sustainability and the actions that must be taken.

 

Bergen Plastics is one of the 147 signatories in the European Plastic Pact, from 21 countries, that have chosen to be one of the frontrunner companies and governments to accelerate the transition towards European circular plastics economy. As a signatory of the European Plastic Pact we believe despite the many benefits plastics provide us, we face a huge challenge in reducing the plastic wastage and littering. To face this challenge, the European Plastics Pact accelerates the shifts toward the reuse and recycling of single-use plastic products and packaging.

 

The Pact brings together governments and frontrunners, as Bergen Plastics, from across the whole value chain. They work together towards four goals aimed at design, responsible use, recycling capacity and the use of recycled content. The Pact supports this work by offering a unique platform to exchange ideas, display good practice and discuss challenges, needed to build a new circular default for all to follow.

Taking local responsibility.

Bergen Plastics takes local responsibility. The management and the workforce is engaged in local initiatives such as clean-neighborhood and making sure no plastic waste from our factory reach the local community. Once a month we have a local action day where some of the work-force collect any litter that is in our close surroundings of the factory locations.
