Environment; our approach

 In Elburg-Smit, Sustainability

As a supply chain partner, we’re always looking for long-term partnerships. We also fully understand the importance of the relationship you have with your customers, which is why we focus on sustainable solutions that are feasible, affordable, and distinctive. Today, our green business philosophy is no longer just an aspiration – it’s anchored in our DNA. Our philosophy is: think green, be green!

To translate ‘being green’ into practice, 2019 saw us make the next step in embedded environmental management so that we can truly measure the effectiveness of our business operations with respect to the environment. This could be in terms of reducing energy consumption, limiting emissions and waste, and purchasing recycled or biodegradable products. By producing your label or packaging as carbon-neutrally as possible, we also help you to reduce your company’s footprint. We do this with recycled plastic or alternatives to plastic such as sustainable cardboard with FSC® or PEFC certification. Our efforts have been rewarded with the ISO 9001-2015 quality certificate and SCMG ISO 14001 environmental certificate. We’re proud of that achievement! These certifications demonstrate that we not only have a well-integrated quality management system for our processes but that we also focus on ensuring a sustainable living and working environment.
