The environment is important
We make cardboard packaging that is sustainable, recyclable and can replace single use plastic on many occasions. As a result of everything that we’ve done we’ve retained our ISO 14001:2015 certification in 2021. Here are just a few of the systems that we’ve put in place to provide us with sustainable energy and to reduce and recycle waste.
The production facility is built on top of a large closed loop recycling system which captures waste directly from the machines and processes it into tightly packed card bales for recycling. The roof of the Atlas factory is fitted with efficient solar panels which provide us with much of our power for heating and lighting as well as running a switch off campaign with staff. We also have installed a biomass boiler. We source our inks from the Huber Group making sure that all inks are water based. The inks also don’t contain any ingredients derived from animals.
We have worked with our suppliers to make the materials we use as sustainable as possible and also have a closed loop delivery system with our fleet of vehicles. We’ve also changed our fork lift trucks from diesel to electric power.
