Sustainability policy

IT is in our dna

For Ecolean, sustainability is truly at the core of our business, and has been since the start. Our ambitions are high because we know that we can make a difference. Ecolean's vision and mission are foundations, which set the requirements for our sustainability approach.

Ecolean's sustainability policy:

Ecolean delivers unique lightweight packaging solutions to liquid food producers around the world. We believe in resource-efficiency – both in terms of our innovative products and the way we conduct our business. We develop products and solutions in an ongoing
dialogue with our stakeholders in order to meet their demands in the most efficient way.

In a world of growing population and customer demands, we offer safe and innovative packaging that reduces waste and can be used anywhere, regardless of local distribution channels and climate conditions. In everything we do, we strive to exceed quality expectations and create value for all our key stakeholders, from our employees to the end-users of the packaged liquid food.

Our Sustainability Policy covers Ecolean’s approach to economic, environmental and social aspects. The effective management of these aspects enhances Ecolean’s performance and the quality of our products. We acknowledge that quality is essential to a sustainable business.
