Embracing 2024: Sustainability in Corrugated Packaging

As we step into 2024, we look forward to continuing to provide the best corrugated packaging options for our customers and building on our commitment to improving sustainability. 

Supporting customers with NetZero

As the world evolves, our customers are increasingly specifying a requirement for sustainable packaging. They find it particularly useful that they are able to report their packaging emissions as zero as all packaging bought from Sandland Packaging is certified CarbonNeutral.

In fact, we were delighted to have retained PAS2060 Carbon Neutral certification with a 15.88% reduction in our carbon footprint equating to 968.18 tonnes of CO2e compared to the 12 month boundary period.

This huge achievement came from strategic decision-making, renewable electricity contracts and reduced purchasing, all while maintaining a comparable turnover. We are realistic – we know that initial improvements will have the biggest impact – but we would like to challenge more companies to take this journey.

In our quest to continue to improve, we were also thrilled to have achieved ISO 14001 Environmental Management Standard.

Helping customers use sustainable packaging

Following on from this is the help we provide customers when they need to reduce the amount of packaging they are using or replace single use plastic or polystyrene. We’re experts at this: read how we helped one of our customers with CarbonNeutral Packaging

Continuing to share useful information and content

To help them make better choices about their packaging, our customers often ask us to share our expertise. We’re happy to help. You may have noticed that we’ve continued to share useful blogs, including ‘Corrugated Explained: Our 7 Point User Guide to Corrugated Packaging’ and ‘Unpacking FEFCO Formats: Decoding the Language of Corrugated Packaging’. Be assured this is going to continue in the future. If there is a particular question about packaging you have always wanted to ask, let us know. We’ll do our best to help.

Get in touch for help with your existing and new packaging projects. Thank you for choosing Sandland Packaging, and here’s to a bright 2024!
