Faerch Plast, producer of plastic containers, has published its first annual Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) report, which gives stakeholders an inside view of the company’s CSR strategy, priorities and performance on its sustainability goals and initiatives.
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.
