IML & Sustainability

Verstraete IML attaches great importance to sustainable development. In mould labelling contributes to environment protection: the packaging and the label are made of the same material. This forms a mono packaging that can be fully recycled. This enables us to ensure that the raw materials that we use have the longest possible service life.

Verstraete IML produces pallets from its own waste materials

Verstraete IML prioritizes sustainability. This means that efficient waste management and circular solutions are an essential part of the production process. A recent innovation introduced by the company is the production of plastic pallets from the company’s own polypropylene IML waste.

Urgent measures need to be taken to prevent there being more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050. The New Plastics Economy (NPEC) is an initiative of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation that wants to create a momentum behind a circular economy for plastics. As a market leader, Verstraete IML definitely has a role to play in the NPEC-story.
