Plasman strives to understand the life-cycle impact of our products and processes. We assess and continually improve our end-of-life strategies to reduce waste in all forms and to improve the circularity of our plastic production processes. By adopting clean and environmentally-sound technologies and strategies, we continuously work toward reducing material, water, and energy consumption. This includes the reduction of the use of harmful materials wherever possible.

Circularity

A competent, skilled workforce is our greatest asset. We are working with strategic competence management systems and support education and learning through access to internal programs, development opportunities, and community partnerships. We seek to enhance the understanding of sustainability through training, open and ongoing communication of internal policies, and by keeping stakeholders informed about regulations and customer standards.

In addition to rigorously following all regulations and industry standards, our climate-neutral strategy helps contribute to the reduction of our greenhouse gas footprint in our internal operations and across our supply chain.

Pollution Reduction

Not only is responsible resource management good for the environment, but it is also beneficial for our overall efficiency. We have developed a long-term climate-neutral energy strategy that will reduce our use globally of non-renewable and climate-adverse energy sources. This resource management extends to raw materials and water use as well.

Responsible Resource Management

Working together with our supplier partners, ensuring responsible sourcing of raw materials, providing transparency on their origins, and working toward eliminating conflict minerals is on the top of our agenda. By considering the economic, environmental, and social aspects of our shared logistics systems, we mitigate any adverse effects of the transportation of raw materials and finished products. Plasman takes into account such global risks as cyber security, data privacy, and risks to stakeholders to work towards mitigating risks in our supply chain.

Responsible Supply Chain Management

Working cross-functionally within Plasman’s various departments, we continue to make advancements in products and materials that allow us to improve the sustainability of our product portfolio. Examples include designing for reduced environmental impact and increased safety. Plasman also is creating a culture of learning and development across the global organization. We encourage our team members to personally work with us to develop a responsible, sustainable organization.
