8 FACTS FOR THE FUTURE: OUR PATH TO MORE SUSTAINABILITY.

There is no environmentally-friendly packaging without sustainable production. This is why Beucke & Söhne GmbH & Co. KG has set as its corporate objective to also reach the highest possible level of sustainability in terms of raw materials and production. Read on to find out eight facts regarding our path to a sustainable future. Sustainability starts – well, where does it actually start? When purchasing raw materials? Or with a more environmentally-friendly production? One thing is certain: Sustainable production starts a lot earlier, during the extraction of raw materials and production at our sites. It is worth taking a critical approach when it comes to the topic of sustainability. Because producing packaging solutions requires resources.

And where does sustainability end? When disposing of packaging waste? Shouldn’t the goal be to reach a circular economy in which as few resources as possible are wasted?

Join us on a trip along our packaging solutions supply chain and to our production sites. Introducing eight facts on the topic of sustainable production and environmentally-friendly packaging solutions.

TO SUSTAINABILITY

ClimatePartner
In cooperation with ClimatePartner, we are actively committed to climate protection: In addition to creating our corporate carbon footprint, we also calculate the carbon footprint of selected packaging and thus determine reduction measures to save CO2 at both company and product level.
ecovadis
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) stands for the social responsibility of companies as part of a sustainable way of doing business. It describes companies' responsibility regarding their impact on society. The CR index rates the quality of CR implementation across different dimensions. To enable holistic evaluation, the CR index is composed of three partial indexes: the governance, the measures and the result indexes.
CDP
The CDP runs the global environmental disclosure system. Every year, the CDP supports thousands of companies, cities, countries and regions by measuring and helping overcome their risks and opportunities with regard to climate change, water safety and deforestation. This is done to answer the wishes of their investors, customers and urban interest groups. The CDP is a not-for-profit organisation that runs the global disclosure system for investors, companies, cities, states and regions to manage their environmental impacts. It is based on the Carbon Disclosure Rating, a measure of the ecological sustainability of a company, which relies on data voluntarily disclosed by the company. This process is meant to help investors wishing to introduce ecological, social and governance (ESG) factors into their investment decisions.
ISO 50001
ISO 50001 is a voluntary international standard. It applies to organisations of all sizes and lays down requirements for the introduction, management and enhancement of energy consumption, CO2 reduction and energy efficiency.
BRCGS
BRC stands for Brand Reputation through Compliance and GS for Global Standards. The BRC standard is recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), a programme to harmonise international food safety standards supported by the world’s largest retailers and food manufacturers. Within the scope of the certification audits, grading criteria are shown in the form of a letter ranking which represents the maturity level of the company. At least one audit must be carried out as an unannounced audit within a three-year certification cycle.
FSC
The FSC seal of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) guarantees that the wood used comes from sustainable and environmentally sound forest management. The seal can be found on wood and paper products.
ISCC
The ISCC is a particularly advanced programme that is considered the first certification for biomass and bioenergy and films made from these materials. As a globally applicable concept, the ISCC was developed with special care, tested during a pilot phase and examined and approved by both European and German authorities.
EinWeg
Since 1991, the legal basis for the one-way deposit system “EinWeg mit Pfand” has been the German Packaging Ordinance, which was replaced by the Packaging Act at the beginning of 2019. “EinWeg mit Pfand” applies to beverage PET bottles and cans marked with the sign of the Deutsche Pfandsystem GmbH, or DPG for short. Ever since its introduction, “EinWeg mit Pfand” has developed into an effective recycling system that is characterised by its transparency and uniformity and is well accepted by consumers. It therefore achieves the ecological goal of waste avoidance.
