TOWARDS A FUTURE WHERE
SUSTAINABILITY IS THE STANDARD
A FUTURE WHERE SUSTAINABILITY IS THE NORM
We look ahead to a future where sustainability is the norm, not the exception. A world where our products and services not only meet the needs of our customers, but also have a positive and sustainable impact on our planet. We are driven to guide our customers and partners on their path to sustainable growth.
At Orange Plastics, sustainability is central to everything we do. We believe that sustainability is not just a trend, but a responsibility we bear as a company.
WHY IS SUSTAINABILITY ESSENTIAL TO US?
PARTNERSHIP FOR SUSTAINABLE INNOVATION
At Orange Plastics we firmly believe that collaboration is the key to true innovation. Our mission is to develop ground-breaking, sustainable plastic solutions in partnership with our customers and stakeholders. We take pride in bridging ideas and reality, creating products and services that not only drive the success of our partners, but also help protect our planet.
BPA-FREE PRODUCTS AND LESS PLASTIC WASTE
We are committed to BPA-free products and strive to reduce the amount of plastic required for the production of our fitments. Thanks to our preference for 'Design Thinking', we continuously investigate new ways to provide more sustainable solutions.
MADE IN HOLLAND: GOOD FOR US AND THE PLANET
We can proudly say 'Made in Holland!'. This choice is not only good for ourselves, but also for our environment and our planet. We have moved part of the production from Asia to the Netherlands, which means we generate significantly less CO2 emissions. This contributes to a cleaner and more sustainable future.
Samenwerking met KANSIS
Orange Plastics has established 'The FaQtory' at Kansis, a work company within the Stichtse Vecht en Ronde Venen that offers employment to people with a distance to the labor market.
Our long-term collaboration with Kansis goes back more than 20 years. It has led to various packaging activities, but also to the deployment of their employees in the assembly process in our Cleanroom of the fitments that we injection mold in our FaQtory. And where possible, we train Kansis employees to operate the injection molding machines. This is a good example of a win-win situation with significant social value.
THE R2S PROCESS
CIRCULAR USE OF PLASTIC
At Orange Plastics, we are actively committed to reducing our environmental footprint and promoting sustainability in the plastics industry. This can be done by increasing the share of recycled plastic in products or, preferably, completely recycled plastic.
For some industries this is not yet permitted for certain types of products, but we always take up the challenge. One of our main initiatives within Straatweg Group is our R2S process, in which we focus on the circular use of plastic.
With the R2S process we aim to minimize waste and maximize the lifespan of plastic materials. This means that we actively look for ways to take back plastic products after use, recycle them and reuse them in our production processes. Supported with accurate reports regarding CO2 savings.
We are committed to continuing the conversation about sustainability, not only with our customers, but also with their stakeholders. We remain committed to finding innovative solutions and exploring new opportunities to integrate recycled materials into our products.
As you can read, sustainability is not an option for us; it is a responsibility we bear with pride. We remain committed to a cleaner and greener future, and we invite our customers and partners to join us on this journey. Together we can have a positive impact on our planet.
