The report is a review of the Group’s responsible business performance during 2013 and it is based on the 10 principles of the UN Global Compact , which Faerch Plast hopes to join.
Last year, the firm defined five areas of social responsibility; use of recycled plastics; climate; food safety; ethics and integrity and employees.
The 2013 report focuses on objectives for the Danish plant and sets out a five-year CSR target for the entire Group including the UK and Czech Republic facilities, all of which are expected to be fulfilled by 2018.
“Faerch Plast is a responsible company that wants to communicate about its CSR activities,” said Lars Gade Hansen, CEO, Faerch Plast.
“As a result, the annual CSR reports will be the main vehicle we have for sharing details on these initiatives so everyone can have a stronger sense of who we are as a company.”
Report highlights include: investment in four large cleaning plants to clean recycled plastic material before processing; commitment to ‘cradle to cradle’ has resulted in development of black plastic material which can be identified and sorted for recycling purposes and 15% of oil-based raw materials for producing PP are replaced with talcum.
