Implementing sustainable strapping in your company requires a strategic approach comprising both environmentally friendly practices and operational efficiency. Here are a number of steps that you can take:
Evaluate the current strapping methods
Start by analysing the strapping methods and materials currently being used in your company. Determine their environmental impact, such as the amount of waste.
Research sustainable materials
Look for strapping materials that are more sustainable, such as biodegradable, recycled or re-usable materials. Materials such as recycled plastic, biodegradable options or even recycled paper can be considered. Please get in touch with our account managers who can offer you the best advice on this.
Invest in efficient strapping equipment
Modern strapping machines are often more efficient and use less material. Consider investing in equipment that uses a precise amount of material, leading to less waste.
Training and awareness
Make sure your employees are trained in using the new strapping methods and materials. Awareness of the importance of sustainability in packaging processes can help create a corporate culture that supports sustainable practices.
Partnerships and suppliers
Work together with Certis Benelux that recommends sustainable materials and equipment.
Monitoring and evaluation
Establish new processes to monitor the effectiveness and environmental impact of the new strapping methods. This can help further refine and improve sustainable practices.
Communication and marketing
Communicate your efforts with regard to sustainable strapping to your clients and stakeholders. This will not only improve your brand image but also attract clients who value sustainability.
Sustainability is an ongoing process. Remain informed of the latest developments and technologies in sustainable strapping and apply them where possible.
By taking these steps, you can effectively transition to sustainable strapping practices in your company. This not only benefits the environment, but in the long term also your company’s efficiency and reputation.
