Our Global Initiatives Thrive on Effective Management

As global producers of plastic containers, we have a responsibility from design to disposal to meet sustainability demands. Our sustainability initiatives are guided by a Bottle to Bottle approach to recycling.Plastipak holds itself accountable to stakeholders to run operations in an environmentally friendly manner for current and future generations. We have made that goal an inseparable part of our business plan.

The impact of climate change and the threat to the environment from pollutants are too big to ignore, and Plastipak is doing everything possible to protect the future of the planet.The company is committed to social responsibility for environmental guardianship and its leadership in sustainability. Plastipak is meeting the goals set by the company's formal conservation plan.

Under this plan Plastipak has initiated a program to reduce compressed air leakage throughout all of our U.S. operations, achieve greater fuel economy, reduce volatile emissions and expand lightweighting programs to reduce the amount of plastic in each container. Plastipak engineers its source materials, technologies, transportation, distribution and recycling scenarios to fit customer sustainability requirements as well.

Consumers and corporations alike must be engaged in order to sustain the planet's resources.Such unified engagement has powerful, long-reaching effects. Participation in conservation initiatives has a positive impact on the economic, human and natural environments. 

A Modern Recycling Facility

Clean Tech's recycling processes focus on the effective management of the life cycle of plastic containers. Clean Tech’s highly qualified engineers design unique technologies to maximize plastic’s beneficial features throughout a product's life cycle and its subsequent lives as recycled material.

Clean Tech engineers follow company directives to reduce material use and weight, where feasible, which in turn yields lower energy and transportation costs. High material production standards are always met to ensure that recycled materials can stand up to quality package demands for maintaining product freshness.

Making Good Use of Recycled Materials

Plastipak uses the inherent resilience of plastics as a key resource for developing sensible, environmentally-friendly packaging lines.Plastics are flexible, durable and endlessly recyclable, permitting limitless use and reuse. The recyclable nature of plastics opens the way for Plastipak to construct its manufacturing to help reclaim bottles rather than only creating new plastics.Clean Tech provides the critical component of this system with its capability of recycling HDPE and PET bottles to produce highly useful post consumer materials.

We Reuse Our Own Recycled Materials
Plastipak's commitment to using renewable and recyclable materials along with reduced content is at the heart of its sustainability initiative. The company manufactures an array of containers for both food and non-food products using recycled plastic produced by Clean Tech. For instance, Clean Tech recycled material replaces at least 10% of the plastic content for a line of beverage bottles.
